As for Mulberry i have gotten my hands on a couple of vintage pieces - women´s hand bags it were - they were of quite nice quality. I do not know about the newer stuff though.

If you are already settled on the Chapman, so be it. But even though you don´t want to buy a Mulberry for retail you might consider calling their factory store - or visit it? dont know how far it will be from where you are living - ? I heard they have quite the prices there.

I bought a Mullberry bag from Ebay. A classic Ethan briefcase. Now I'm wondering if I've been fooled. I couldn't find much information about the briefcase from the internet. Looks like it's been discontinued but I couldnt find out when. The briefcase I ordered is supposed to be brand new and I paid 250 euros for it. I guess I'll find out if it's really authentic when I receive it. I thought it would fit nicely in the office. Any opinions?

Here are some sample pictures. :

Looks authentic, but a terrible waste of money.

I went to beicester outlets today because I decided I didn't liek the Chapmens and went to mulberry, but didn't like their offerings except 1 plastic coated canvas duffle bag, but it was kind of cheapy and wasn't really worth it. Then I went to bally and they were having a great sale on bags so I picked up a large leather messenger bag for 210 GBP. Its just the right size for what I need and the leather is fantastic quality.

Mulberry bags are nice but overpriced, as others pointed out. Visible logos, middling construction quality and pretty high prices: perfect for their target market. And I wouldn't buy a cloth-lined briefcase for everyday use, anyway. I've got a small briefcase from SageBrown, a small shop in one of the St James arcades (between Piccadilly and Jermyn St). Nothing spectacular, but much better quality than Mulberry at a fraction of the cost. My other (more casual) bag is a messenger from Orciani: good looks, nice leather, but way too soft, so the strap is falling apart after a mere three or four years.

Nah, what you want is this one! Suitable for mud and rain, not paper and pencils.
