Essential | Longines Le Pliage Document Case

Le Pliage Document Case Longchamp

Dimensions :

37x28x08 cm
14½x11x3¼ inch

I first came about this document case/briefcase in Paris. The number of sightings of men carrying this case was as resounding as women carrying the Louis Vuitton Speedy here in NY - I mean it is everywhere. So naturally it peaked my interest being that I am an extremely curious person. Anyways, later that afternoon, my wife and I happen to stumble on the Longchamp flagship store and I couldn't resist the temptation. I had to find out more about this bag. I definitely knew it was by Longchamp since it had all the signature elements (synthetic body, leather flap, and gold hardware) but I had never seen this bag stateside. As we entered the store, a gentleman greeted us and asked if we were looking for anything in particular. I described the bag and the gentleman knew exactly what I was looking for, the "Le Pliage Docs - Modele Depose" is the bag. All neatly folded up like a pocket square, he unfolded the case and said here. He goes on to tell us that the bag is widely carried amongst Parisian men and has not made it stateside. So, I picked it up. Fairly cheap to. You can actually find it online now, so if your interested, click the link above to purchase.

This compact case unfolds to become a large catch-all able to hold a medium sized paperback novel, pda cellphone, wallet, keys, work file, Wall Street Jounal, Zagats guide, Moleskin Journal, Ipod, pen, and still with extra room.

The Good and the Bad:

  • The best thing about this is for those of you living in small spaces, this bag takes up virtually no room, especially when folded up.
  • The bad-because it fold up into practically nothing, it's extremely easy to misplace. A game of hide-and-seek anyone?


  1. I could put this bag to good use.

  2. Stacy,

    Its a really versatile bag. I have had it for some time now and serves its purpose-protect what I'm carrying in style. And when I'm not carrying the bag it hangs folded on a door knob. Surprisingly, I get a lot of questions from both men and women and I have yet to see anyone with it. If you end up getting it, let me know!
