Briefcases have been a part of the professional man’s lifestyle since the 1800s. In my opinion, as a professional, it’s an absolute necessity! Can you imagine walking in an office with papers, files, and whatever else you keep in there in your hands? How much of a “professional” would your colleagues consider you then?

Now I’ve come across plenty of guys who are skeptical about purchasing a briefcase due to fear of cost so I decided to nip that excuse in the butt.

Here are 5 stylish briefcases under the $100 mark:
