So I did get the chance to meet with Frank Clegg (the master craftsman at Lotuff & Clegg) and check out their products this morning. It's a neat space, bigger than I expected, in an old mill in Fall River, MA. Ended up ordering the zip top bag in the dark chocolate brown. Their leather is really, really nice and I think will age wonderfully. Build quality is top notch and the use of a hefty riri zipper is a nice plus. He had just finished another zip top bag and I liked...
I'm going to check out a Lotuff & Clegg bag this morning that says it can take a 17" laptop, although it's a 17" wide bag so I'd doubt it...

I'd buy a used one if it was like an off lease auto What bugs me about the Glaser bags is the slight element of marketing fluff that detracts from an otherwise beautiful bag. The branding for the frame on the inside, the attachment of accessories via velcro...I'm sure...
