What to give the cigar enthusiast who has everything? How about a "Perfecto" briefcase that an entrepreneur named after his favorite Cuban cigar?

In 1913, Irving Schott founded the leather-goods company that bears his name. In 1928, Schott Bros. claims it developed the first leather motorcycle jacket, which had a starring role in the film The Wild One with Marlon Brando and Lee Marvin. Schott named the jacket after his favorite accessory--his Perfecto.

Later, the Perfecto line was expanded to include handbags, belts, knapsacks, wallets and briefcases, all made with full-grain, black or brown cowhide and nickel or brass detailing. The collection retails for $20 to $375.

Got $7,800 burning a hole in your pocket? Consider the alligator attaché made by Charles Underwood of Dallas. Or try the $5,800 ostrich case. The company also makes alligator and ostrich desk sets that include blotter, pen stand, note holder and "In" box.
