anyone using braun buffel messenger bags? how long did yours last? mine just 4 years nia.. the lining inside cui alr... got tear liao
That's the problem with most bags that's sold outside. The leather might be good, but the lining inside faces the most wear and tear due to the contents shifting and generating friction. I'm not sure if there are any brands that sell briefcases/messenger bags with full leather lining too, but that's what I would look out for in future!

Totally spot on. The material outside (leather) is built to last but the material which they use inside is not good enough. Surprising thing is.. my 10 year old deuter bag is in perfect condition inside and out (thrown around with less care).

I have a Braun buffel briefcase

Condition is still good but after some usage with wet hands,

The handle started to have some odour


Any way to remove or does B.B. do the whole handle change for some fees?

I send to B.B. maintenance but didnít look like much has been done

I highly doubt that BB will be able to change the whole handle - the briefcases are usually made on a production line and they are not setup to do individual repairs. Probably better off finding a local leathercrafter who can do it for you. All the best!

Their bags are really well made. I bought a soft briefcase last year and it’s still in good condition other then the scratches from my cats lol.

The new linjer bags are made from different quality although they claimed it is better now but let's wait and see.
