If you’ve gotten a bit too used to working from home and now, all of a sudden, need to start dressing for the office again, well, start with the basics: Get your wardrobe in line with office-ready essentials, yes, but first…address your everyday carry. Yes, it’s truly best to start with the building blocks, like a stylish leather briefcase you’re going to use every single day (and then some).
The best place to start your search for your new favorite EDC gear? Let’s go with WP Standard, the Texas-based leather goods brand with a knack for making heritage-quality picks fit to use, well, every single day.
We talked recently on the blog about how WP Standard makes one of the best leather duffle bags, but when you need something a bit more streamlined, that’s where the WP Standard Woodward Brief enters the equation. As the brand itself says, this handsome, full-grain leather bag is a “perfect companion for your daily commute,” and I’d venture to say that it’s also one of the best travel bags.
Solid brass hardware provides a handsome touch, and the padded laptop compartment on the WP Standard Woodward Brief makes it an ideal way to transport your valuables. Plus, handy external pockets deliver another degree of utility to the WP Standard Woodward Brief. Plus, as with other variations on the best leather bags, the WP Standard Woodward Brief will only get better with age, developing a patina unique to your personal style. What’s not to love about that? The journey to getting back out there and upgrading your EDC starts… now.
