The Definitive MANBAG Thread Part I: 2009-2014 - Page 169

Saddleback Leather isn't everyone's cup of tea but that's OK. For those who do like their stuff here's a pic of how the light tobacco ages. My satchel is 3 years old and it spends a lot of time outdoors in the sun, rain and whatever else I get into. I'm using it mainly as a light camera bag.

I'm not normally a fan of Margiela, but this is a pretty much perfect all-around bag:


-basic, hard-wearing black pebbled leather that won't show dirt or color transfer

-minimal styling, fine for work or casualwear

-good size (17"x 16" x 4"); big enough to hold your stuff and not be mistaken for a purse, small enough not to be luggage

-two exterior pockets

-short straps and opt. shoulder strap

$1630, so it's expensive in absolute terms, though not bad for a designer-branded bag.

Cross post from by own thread, but I'm still very happy with my custom Simon Baker bag that I received almost a year ago. Has barely shown any signs of aging and has darkened slightly mainly due to oil transfer.

What is the consensus on Gurkha brand? Are they worth their 1k price tag?

Got it for 200 minus Ebay cash back ,so for next to nothing. Generous size carry on , thick pebbled leather and quality brass hardware. I suspect I paid close to actual cost to produce this bag even in India. Apparently it is branded Cole Haan but identical to Mulholland Brothers bag. Who makes for whom i don't know.
I don't mind the stitching it is going to get dark anyway.

The measurements are v close to my O'Hare... It is a very good size. I agree - big enough to not be mistaken for a purse. It does make a visual statement.

I've been hunting a go-anywhere do-anything weekender and stumbled across one - Frost River's "Prairie Boot Bag" - that I'm surprised to see that I can't find any outside reviews or impressions of. Made of waxed canvas with a shoe compartment separated from the main body and a bit bigger than a duffel at 18hx20lx12w (the 18h is 12 for the main compartment and 6 for the shoes) - at $190 it sounds like a bargain too!

Does anybody have any info or experience they can share? I'd especially appreciate some better real-world pics if you've got them.

Here's the product link: https://www.frostriver.com/shop/prairie-boot-bag/ plus a pic that I snagged from their site:

^ how about this one from Paul Smith? It's 20% off right now at Bloomies. It's got an enchanting diamond forest print with little people cruising around. Perfect

was thinking of getting this Tumi Backpack for the occasional holiday and general daily use. What do you guys think?

 

 

Here's how it looks on, although I prefer it in the Hickory.

Hi guys, 

 

I kind of have a bag crush on this Bleu de Chauffe in royal blue color. I like the originality, yet classic look. Should I pull the trigger ? 

The material is waxed twill and vegetable tanned leather.

hey guys maybe you can help me out. looking for a brown (think color of AE walnut) leather brief good for business/casual. really want to spend as little as possible. most likely under $200, if at all possible.

Any chance you could take a picture of your self to the side, holding the bag by the handles? Thinking of getting the one on Tres bien, but I can't make out exactly how long the handles are.
