I have no experience with Glaser; maybe search the Classic Menswear section? At least a few of them have Glaser bags.
Here's a nice-looking pebbled leather tote that sneaks in (after 40% off) under the $300 limit so many people have posted.

For me, Gucci has two key problems:-Frida Giannnini just isn't that good. She's predictable to the point of parody: florals for spring! Military for fall! Nautical for cruise! Under her direction, Gucci has devolved into a heritage factory, sputtering out house classics with the occasional residue of Ford-era sexiness.

So much has changed, and not for the better. I have a Vuitton reporter from 1999; the canvas is thick and chewy, the hardware is impeccable, and even the fabric strap feels sturdy and expensive.

I believe Coach is currently having a 25% off "preferred customer event"; they have some nice, basic leather styles that are well made and reasonably priced with the discount.
I'm referring to their outlets. My items have already been charged and shipped.
Brunello Cucinelli is marking down their outlet merch an additional 60% tomorrow (total discount about 75% off retail).
