Orvis Battenkill Briefcase: Then & Now

Orvis Battenkill Then & Now

When I first arrived at the office of my new job, I quickly noticed that everyone was carrying Orvis briefcases to work.

Not wanting to miss an opportunity, I asked one of the partners if I could quickly compare my new bag with his 10 year old one.

And one story that peaked my interest this past week was a little glimpse into the war experience of my favorite author J.D. Salinger.
