    Terrible quality control and service

    By Katherine

    from NJ

    Comments about Johnston & Murphy LAWYER'S BRIEFCASE:

    I purchased this briefcase as a an anniversary gift for my husband. I arrived in a cardboard box without any other protection such as a plastic bag or even tissue paper. The briefcase was dirty, covered in dust, and the leather was scratched. I could not possibly give this to my husband in this condition. I was looking forward to giving him this briefcase for our wedding anniversary and I was left without a gift. I expected far better from J&M and this was terribly disappointing. I emailed the company to complain, but the only response I received was a return shipping label and return instructions. My husband owns several pairs of J&M shoes, but after this terrible experience, we will shop elsewhere.

      This is a great briefcase, and looks very nice. The clasp broke within 8 months of purchase however. The company immediately replaced it with a brand new case. Delivery was quick and easy. They were great to deal with.

        I use this every day of every week in frequent business travelling. As a consultant having to carry 2 laptops, the space is great and looks very fashionable. I've had quite a few people ask about it...my only issue is that the picture in the catalog and online don't do this briefcase justice..would recommend a pic of the inside also...i'd recommend this briefcase - very happy with it.

        Service and delivery comments:

        got delivered in 3 business days, in a box. All worked out well. i'd go back and order from J&M any day...thank you for the positive experience!

            I received this bag about a month ago and I couldn't be more pleased. I have been looking for a quality briefcase of this design for years and all the previous briefcases have come up short. If you're looking for a classic design that will turn heads then this is it.

              Comments about Johnston & Murphy LAWYER'S BRIEFCASE:

              I've used this briefcase for more than a year now and it has traveled considerably in that time. The appearance is unblemished even after many "under the seat in front of you" experiences. Interestingly, the leather seems to heal itself of small scuffs and scratches. Laptop, power supply and files are no problem; the amount of space is quite surprising and the laptop space is padded for extra protection. As you would expect, there is an organizer for pens, wireless cards etc. as well as an internal zippered compartment. I have received a number of compliments on the traditional lines of the briefcase. Overall, I am happy with this briefcase and would recommend it to those looking for something a little more stylish than the overstuffed roller bag.

              • Q:

                When you open the bag, does it stay open? I have had similar bags in the past and when you would open it, the bag would not stay open and would always close automatically making it very difficult to remove the contents.

                  A:

                  If you "partially" open the bag it will stay about ¼ open when you release it. However, the way that the bag is hinged, if you fully open the bag so the hinged joints "pop up" then the bag stays fully open and is easily accessible to the complete interior. It will not close until you push the hinged joints back down. I have been very pleased with the bag and would recommend it if you need a bag of that size/type.

                  David,
                  The answer is; Yes, when you open the bag, it stays open. The hinge keeps it in open position.

                  Yes. I have had the bag for a while and if you open it up "all the way" it
                  stays open, if you open it up partially it will close.
