I'm going to disagree here, too... the saffiano leather and the lining make it too stiff. It won't fit in a locker, it won't "soften up" enough over time to make it durable. It's basically an unstructured briefcase. Yeah, it "looks" like a neat retro idea, but only if it were made from a material (like soft calf, canvas, or nylon) or a shape (more duffle-like with a shoulder strap or flatter handles) that would be conducive to it. I think a "serious" person (meaning not just a brand-whore) who bought this bag would find themselves hard-pressed to find an occasion to use it. I can see some thinking it would be a neat buy at the time, because of the retro-feel, the leather, etc. BUT, getting it home, they find it's not good for a school bag, it's not good for a business bag, it's not good for a gym bag. I don't really know what it is... and then they're stuck with an $1800 bag that they'll sell on ebay for $550. Of course, I'm anti-Prada lately because they use to be the design and material innovators, and now they just copy/follow others and make gimmicky shit. Like, they copied the Trussardi camo a season later, making prada bags with camo. This past Fall/Winter, they copied the Chanel "Cocoon" bags from quilted nylon/leather. They are basically rip-offs with the 'triangle" stuck on. It's very disappointing, as I know Prada can make a nice bag when they want. Since the mid 1990's, I've probably had twenty or more.

isn't Prada pretty much self-parody at this point, though

y/n?
It looks similar to the men's bag, but smaller.

I don´t know about the leather. I wasn´t totally serious about it, though. However, another nice find:

Perhaps some brilliant, hawk-eyed, super SF'er can help me out here. I am sort of not liking wearing a backpack for college. This messenger bag looks pretty slick, if only someone could ID it.

Alonso is on Twitter - just ask him directly.

Anybody actually bought a Moore & Giles bag?
I'm tempted, but can't find any first-hand accounts.

Has anyone bought/handled a Killspencer bag?

After scouring the net, I've found only one real review (very positive) and a handful of brief blog comments. There's tons of gear blog hypebeastin' and interesting interviews with Spencer, along with some excellent marketing... but no one seems to know much. An SF search basically yields some posts with the same question, "has anyone bought/handled?"

Bought this when I was in New York. I showed it to Vanna for approval and it didn't make him retch so I guess I did well enough
Its huge though.

Anyone know a place to get a good price on Krane bags ? Doing a search on google there aren't many online vendors..
post #1466 of 2782
This is my trusty manbag/messenger bag.
apologies for the bilboard size pics.


post #1467 of 2782


I like it, but don't think it's worth the asking price.

Wish the sides were made out of leather, too.

Yeah, they look good. Have their prices come down? I remember them costing more than they do now...

There used to be more online vendors of his bags but not anymore - I wonder why. Ken Chow recently had a sale on B&S which included some bags. Perhaps you could PM him to see if he's got anymore? I find him to be responsive and helpful.

I would like to know this as well - I have yet to find a real review from anyone who actually bought and uses one. Everything I have found on them is all marketing hyperbole.

Any recommendations on a nice sleek leather Lap top sleeve? I haven't been able to find any thing sub a 1000$ that I like, beside the want les essentiels Denim one and that is sold out.
