Absolutely gorgeous- makes going back to work bearable

This bag is incredible. Purchased for a work bag and it is perfect. The leather is thick and lush, the size is big enough but not overwhelming. Two thumbs up

Buchanan Tote - A GREAT Briefcase!

One of THE Best briefcases I have ever had and will ever have! It is simple and amazingly crafted. I purchased it mid 2020 for work and it was well worth the wait which in fact was a pretty fast turn around time. It didn’t need any customizations at all. It worked out great! Thanks GFG crew. Simply the BEST leather on the market.

Nicole Hendrix
Excellent product

This is the third Go Forth product my boyfriend and I have purchased for ourselves or as a gift. Everything is so well made (while also being stylish). Another review mentioned the pictures for this bag do not do it justice, and I agree. The bag is more beautiful in person, and I am excited to give it as a gift!

Good deal

Just purchased a Buchanan tote bag at a shop in Santana Row, San Jose, California. Planning to use it for work and traveling. Leather feels soft and looking forward to using it. Feels good to buy quality hand made product made in the USA.
