If you thought briefcases were a tad old fashioned, well think again because trendy and classic brands have reworked them for modern-day technology.
It means while you may have to carry your tablet or laptop around with you for work, meetings or interviews, there’s no need to look anything less than stylish as gone are the days when a computer bag meant something made in cheap-looking nylon.
Here we take a look at some of the best for helping you to look the business.
