Monk FactsA pen sleeve is pretty handy really. It is a simple way of carrying around a few of your favourite ‘writing instruments’ without worrying about leakage if they’re in your pocket, or having them tumble willy-nilly around your briefcase. Made from Frank Clegg’s supple, textured, tumbled calf leather, this case will last forever and get more attractive as it ages, like Richard Gere. Leather goods should be tough but elegant. A man’s briefcase should last the duration of his career and its patina should be a record of his decades of meetings, late nights and countless commutes. It should be built to stand up to years of use and all kinds of weather, but still look good enough to impress a colleague. Frank Clegg knew all this when he started out in the mid 1970s and he has spent the intervening decades refining his craft and sourcing the best materials to transform this ideal of what leathergoods should be into concrete form. Clegg specialise in the use of harness leather, a full-thickness cowhide that has been treated extensively with hot grease and waxes to give it flexibility, smoothness and depth of colour. Only thick, perfect hides can be used and it is an expensive process, but the leather produced is the only material that can be used for the rigid, durable pieces for which Clegg is renowned.
