Passavant and Lee briefcase in cedar

This week marked the end of LCM, London Men’s Fashion week, a schedule showcasing the best of British fashion talent. As has been evident from this week’s fashion highlights, mens accessories are more relevant than ever.

In light of this, Passavant and Lee, an American and British design collaboration between two friends, Jon Passavant and Benj Lee (pictured below), have launched their new line of accessories. The No. 25 Collection has already garnered much critical acclaim, both for the quality and design of its hand-crafted briefcases, which are made with aircraft-grade aluminium.

As men’s fashion smartens up and travel becomes an increasingly relevant facet of work and leisure, this briefcase provides a solution for the travelling man who wants to arrive in style.

Passavant and Lee have demonstrated remarkable attention to detail. From the solid brass, silver-plated lock to the silk-lined pockets and leather trim, every component within the No. 25 collection has been conscientiously designed.

Assembled entirely by hand in London, this is a brand that is pushing the boundaries of design and style, and is certainly the perfect compliment to what we’ve seen coming out of the LCM this week. Watch this space.
