My late dad who was a businessman used to carry mens leather briefcase whenever he travels for business transactions to different places. His favorite briefcase was given to him by my mom and that was his constant companion in all his business appointments. I don’t know what happened but I have seen it since my father died. I believe my mom hid it so she could always have a remembrance of my dad. It was a handy case and with high quality of durability since it survived many years of usage in the family. Would I still use it if my mom would give it to me ? I guess, I will still hide it and keep it for as memorabilia. I would surely look weird having it on my out-of-town meetings.
