Great, glad to help. I've been drooling over some of their belts and wallets for a while now. Unfortunately the one's I really like didn't go on sale... Took quite a bit of self control to not pull the trigger on one anyways. Be sure to post some pics when they arrive.

Hi everyone I'm looking for a bag for college. I need a bag that can hold a 15 inch laptop, a textbook or two and some notebooks. My tastes are more classic menswear and I'm trying to find a bag in the 350ish range. Right now I have my eyes on the Mismo tote.

Other bags I'm looking at are the Ernest Alexander wax brief

and the Apolis Filson briefcase and courier bags.

All are fine looks wise. Depending on your major, there's no way some of those will hold your textbooks and if they do - it will get pretty heavy pretty quickly. Also, don't be that asshole who wears a suit to class.

You will hurt your shoulder if you carry all that in a messenger bag, not to mention made with heavy canvas. Wear a backpack, and save messenger for outside class.

If you are not looking to carry anything thick or awkwardly shaped, this limited edition Adobe messenger bag, marked down from $250 to $50 is quite good and a steal at the price. Make sure you read the reviews and understand the trade-offs behind the roll-top closure first:

Ended up going with the Filson Red Label Zippered Tote in Navy.

What are the thoughts on this Coach carry on? Anyone seen reviews or had first hand experience? My main concern would be leather quality , is it really belting or saddle leather or it is cheaper imitation with painted on color?

P.S. bag used to be priced at 650 -fair now it is 790 -approaching overpriced

I don't know anything about that bag. However, my wife owned and used a Coach purse for more than a decade. It wore very well, and looked good.

^ Do you think the older Coach products were of better quality? I can't comment on that bag because I have not seen it irl but I keep hearing the quality of current Coach products are not very good (with regard to price to quality ratio). It is my pet peeves, though, that a leather duffle bag comes with a nylon strap. It's a cost cutting move by the company. I think it's look so much better with a leather strap.

So guys,

This bag whore has finally pulled the trigger and bought a tote. It's the WANT Les Essentiels O'Hare tote. I have attached two stock photos (from Oak NYC and Mr. Porter). I really like it. If the handles were longer, I wouldn't have bought it. It's a personal thing of course but most tote handles are too long for me - the form factor is quite different. The leather is very good - it's super soft and lush. It's roomy, and I like the size of it. I won't fill it up of course, but the size contributes to the overall look. It's made in Italy. I think WANT's more recent leather products are no longer made in Europe. Their canvas stuff has always been made outside of N America and Europe, I think...

Sorry I missed it. Did you bid on it? I am not a fan of the contrast stitching. Made it too busy but I am a minimalist at heart.
