The Triumph Briefcase


Saddle Tan

We can emboss your initials on your new Lotuff piece to make it truly your own. Please write in the order of your first initial, middle, and last initials. If you’d like, you can forego a middle initial. Each letter is capitalized and in the same size and font. A monogram adds $50 to your order. Provided the item you order is in stock, there is no added lead time if you opt for the monogram.

Lotuff's Triumph Briefcase is handmade in America of natural, vegetable-tanned leather. Guaranteed for life, this modern leather briefcase is as functional as it is beautiful. Perfect for a business executive or political attache, its triple-gusset construction allows the briefcase to neatly and seamlessly expand from 2 inches to 8 inches deep.

Product Information

Sleek, modern, and instinctively functional, the Triumph is a fully leather-lined, triple-gusset briefcase. 

This triple-gusset design creates a unique accordion construction, allowing the bag to expand and contract between 2 inches and 8 inches. This rare expandability provides unparalleled functionality, making the bag perfect whether you're a traveling minimalist or a heavy packer. With an extended zipper, access to the interior is wide and easy. 

On the inside you'll find three separate full-length compartments. The center compartment has two full-length zipper pockets for a laptop, tablet, or periodical and smaller pockets for a mobile, keys, or travel miscellany. A cross-body strap attaches and detaches to each side of the bag. 

Because the bag is fully leather lined, it stands up independently whether completely empty or teeming with your possessions.

Words Don't Do it Justice

I had my eye on this briefcase for several months before pulling the trigger, and when it arrived, the bag was everything I expected from my endless research, and more. I love a sleek, minimal profile with high functionality and attention to detail to every aspect of the bag, including the inside. The Triumph is hands-down the best-looking bag I've seen in person or online—it feels cool and classic at the same time, without any bulky outside pockets/zippers. It stands up on its own, which is a much bigger deal than even I realized. The shape fully comes together when you put stuff in it, and I love the curve of the top when it zips closed. The inside is well thought-out, with leather that's as beautiful as the leather on the outside. Pockets fit my wallet and 13-inch MacBook Pro snugly and perfectly—plus other assorted knickknacks. And I love the way I can reach in and grab whatever I want without digging around too much. This bag is perfection.


Amazing bag! Love it. Thank you Karin and Lotuff team!

This is the one

The style is instantly classic. It fits much more than it looks like it would, while keeping a beautiful shape. The attention to detail and craftsmanship is flawless. If this briefcase had a "Hermes" logo on it, it would sell for tens of thousands of dollars. And yet, even Hermes does not match the quality and beauty of this timelessly elegant briefcase. I love everything about it and it feels like a bargain.


Beautiful bag, thick, but soft, supple leather. The design is ingenious: the bag can stand on its own and maintains its structure. The bag can hold a laptop, ipad, and accessories plus a few other things. It can hold more than you’d think, but it might be a tight fit or not enough room for those looking to replace a day bag or small backpack.

Best Briefcase I've Owned

Interstate travel is a weekly event for me here in Australia and this briefcase absolutely nails it.

I can only echo what's been said in previous positive reviews: the leather quality, how it feels to carry, the design (everything fits into a thinner, minimalist, bag that stands up by itself, open and accessible), the fantastic customer service...

I bought this because I love my (also in Indigo) No.12 Weekender. They'll both last forever, but The Triumph is on another level altogether.
