Partly agree - leather briefcase with suit does look better in a formal way. But what canvas does is make a formal / business outfit look a bit less stiff . This bag will be my 4th work bag . I have 2 leather briefcases including a SAB. But 80% of the time I find myself carrying my canvas briefcase.
So much of filson talk lately here - bought the 256 in navy - on sale for Usd $ 200 free standard shipping from urban outfitters. Was planning to get the 257 in otter green for nearly 12 months now. But I think $220 aud shipped is a good purchase.
