Eric Polins, a Pottstown native and Penn State graduate, has designed the first briefcase with interchangeable panels, currently named “Better Briefcase,” writes Nina Trach for the Penn State News.
Polins, who has a passion for individual expression, is hoping his patented innovative design will create an outlet for personal expression for the professional.
“Individuality is celebrated more than ever, which is great to see,” said Polins.
The idea came to him when he received an expensive brown leather briefcase from his wife, and realized that he could only use it when he was wearing brown shoes. After searching the market for something that would provide a solution for days when he wanted to wear black shoes, he found none.
So he then decided to create the briefcase himself. After three years of research, he managed to patent his innovation in early 2019. The smaller briefcase has swappable panels on both sides, perfect for anyone who wants to differentiate themselves.
Now Polins is planning to use his extensive experience in advertising and marketing to help present his Better Briefcase to the world as an alternative to the “stuffiness of the old man’s briefcase.”
