Choices on Aluminum attache case
November 11, 2012 11:45 AM   Subscribe

My husband mentioned today he needed to replace his black leather briefcase/attache case with an aluminum one. Of course, with Christmas just around the corner I think this would be a good Christmas present. My question is what is a good brand, best place to buy online price wise and what color would be best as far as black or silver?

Rimowa is sort of the best known brand, but be warned they are quite pricy.

I'd go silver personally - otherwise why get AL? There are cheaper ways to get similar levels of protection if a black case is fine.

For the evil genius.

My wife bought me a Zero as linked by leotrotsky almost a decade ago and it still looks brand new. I don't carry it that often, but I love it. It is damn near indestructible.

What would be similar to aluminum JPD for durability? The black leather case he has now is worn around the edges which prompted his comment about getting aluminum.

Hard Plastic is the other option. Like leo trotsky's link
