why this product

The Black on Black Cary Briefcase, Stuart & Lau's original briefcase, was born in response to years spent by each founder traversing across New York and Hong Kong, carrying heavy or cumbersome bags in tow. While ballistic nylon or waxed canvas products were the norm, they weighed the duo down and contributed just another complexity to hectic commutes. The team behind Stuart & Lau sought something more agile and effortless, and thus, the Black on Black Cary Briefcase was born.

use & care

Back by a lifetime guarantee and crafted from resilient DuraLite™ fabric and full grain leather — The Black on Black Cary Briefcase is a durable and fuss-free solution built to be carried everyday. But if you have any questions about caring for your bag, the Stuart & Lau team is always standing by to help.

production & design

Starting with the material selection, Stuart & Lau opted for a resilient nylon twill that has a thin layer of rubber foam bonded to the backside. This fully waterproof fabric weighed significantly less than alternatives while also lending durability and strength to the shape. Next, the designers began brokering a happy marriage between real world utility and timeless style. Confident that form and function could coexist, Stuart & Lau looked for ways to engineer smart features into a quintessentially classic shape. Whether it's their signature umbrella slot or the smart positioning of the sleeves, every stitch and fold is intended to move him through the day with ease and distinction. The result is a lightweight, weatherproof, and versatile briefcase that would be as at home in the hands of Cary Grant as it is in his today.
