Kenneth Cole Reaction “I Rest My Case” Leather Briefcase

Kenneth Cole Productions, Inc. was founded in 1982 by Kenneth Cole to introduce his line of shoes to the buying public. He couldn’t afford a hotel room or a showroom at a New York fashion show, and the only way to rent a trailer on the streets was to get a permit. There was a problem, though, because in order for a trailer permit, you had to be a utility company or a production company, so after changing his name to include “Productions,” Cole filmed “The Birth of a Shoe Company” in two and a half days, and sold 40,000 pairs of shoes while chronicling the beginning of the company on film.


Kenneth Cole went public in 1994, and has been included four times on Forbes annual list of 200 Best Small Companies.

Kenneth Cole not only designs men’s and women’s footwear, but also men’s and women’s clothing and accessories under the Kenneth Cole Reaction Line.
