Technically speaking, this bag is from Swaine Adney Briggs but was manufactured with the Peal and Company label. Peal & Co. was a very popular shoemaker during the early part of the century. They gained tremendous popularity in the United States when Brooks Brothers started carrying their products, the most well known item were their loafers. My father would often tell me how he owned five or six pairs of loafers as they had incredibly thin soles. In the 1960s, Peal started to lose many of their craftsmen and they had a difficult time replacing them and this lead to the end of Peal and Company. Upon closure, Peal sold their label to Brooks Brother and to this very day Brooks Brothers still creates “Peal and Company” products.
This Brooks Brothers Peal and Company briefcase is based off the
Swaine Adney Briggs Lombard model.
