Question: I’ve been on a rabid hunt for a work portfolio/padfolio for over a year without any luck, and I wanted to ask if you knew of any good ones! I’m not looking for a big clutch or a big wallet, which is what most work “portfolios” I find these days turn out to be, but a nice folder-like folio that I can carry to meetings, which holds a pad, business cards, pens, and the like. I’ve found some old-school ones, but they’re all like the ones dads used in the 80s! Bulky, cheap-looking, and not chic at all. Are there any stylish work padfolios out there?? I’ve checked all the department stores and tried Goyard, L.V., Hermès — nothing. Ugh!
