New York duo Passavant and Lee out to shake up men's accessories

When a pair of intimidatingly handsome former Ralph Lauren and Christian Dior models create a line of handmade leather briefcases, you'd expect that, if nothing else, they’re going to look good.

Prices start at £1,850, passavantandlee.com.
