Absolutely beautiful! With a name such as Michelangelo how could it not. A Michelangelo Buonarroti is my second Pratesi briefcase. (My other -- more than 11 years old is still going strong, save for a new grip.) While I have been carrying the Michelangelo less than a full week, being bright Cherry Red, it has garnered much attention. I EXPECT that this briefcase will see me through the end of my briefcase carrying days. Thank you!
