Mismo have only a few online stockists and rarely something is found on sale. Factory sales are somewhere in Scandinavia?

I ordered last week my second Mismo bag from Opumo, with a coupon and VAT reduction, the price was reasonable.

Looking for a work/computer bag.

I love the SAB stuff ,but would prefer to spend less.

http://www.sterlingandburke.com/store/Swaine-Adeney-Hand-Stitched-Wrap-Round-Strap-Document-Case.html

Fison is a bit too casual for me.

Casemaker (Simon Baker) on this forum seems to make some nice handmade stuff but it is almost the SAB price. Can anyone vouch for the quality of his bags?

Any other highly recommended bags out there?

looking for a minimal vertically-oriented one-compartment shoulder bag with just enough room for a few notebooks and maybe a thin textbook. prefer zipper rather than flap, brown leather, and under $200. any suggestions?

Full leather for under $200 is a pretty tall order; even Cole Haan, MBMJ, and Jack Spade are going to be twice that. Fossil has some decent options at $150-200; 6pm.com has the "Dillion City Bag" in brown on sale for $150.

Over your budget, and not exactly SF-approved, but this Tumi meets the bill:

What would be a decently priced bag for work that can fit some stationery, ipod charger, MBP 13" and a couple of documents? Must have international shipping. smile.gif

I saw pictures of this guy’s bags here on SF and started talking with him. Here are some excerpts from his emails:
“…I have been a casemaker full time for over 25 years, don't employ staff, so everything is made by me. The case we are looking at, takes over 25 hour to make, as I said, is double hand stitched entirely, apart from the partition boards top binding. The front and back panel is made from Bridle butt ( a much better cut than the more usual bridle shoulder, and at double the price, if SAB don't say butt, which they don't, then you have to assume shoulder )
I do not line the front and back panels, because the leather is well finished, and will age well, and attain it's own patina, and applied linings are likely to stain and wear poorly. The partition boards are lined with a glazed pigskin lining, that is made as a shoe lining leather, that I have found to be extremely well wearing.
The case body straps are bridle butt, hand stitched, not riveted, the same with the detachable shoulder strap. all fittings are polished brass. I have not yet had a hand stitched case returned to me for repair, in more than 25 years, so I guess that says something!...”
“…£920 + £65 for the extra corners + freight at cost, and you may have import duties.

The SAB case you have asked about, would be, I stock, but don't like them because they put the handle off center, when in the 'wrong' hole…”think less than £920, because there are no straps and strap chapes to deal with, however, the pocket details would add to the work? I do not currently have any 'padding' suitable for the center partition, but in my view, it should be almost impossible for a laptop to be damaged in the center pocket? Also I see that SAB have used a thin leather wrapped around board for the F and Back panels, I would use 3.5 - 4mm Sedgewicks Bridle Butt, MUCH more durable, and a better quality of leather. The back and front panels would not be lined.

It would be entirely hand stitched, except for the partition top binding. You would be able to specify pocket dimensions and other details…”
Any comments on his take on SAB quality?
Any other suggestions for a bag?
Pictures of casemaker's bag that I am considering:

I agree.

On a semi-related note, Jack Spade is having a "surplus sale" on their site - ends tomorrow or Wednesday I think.

The Waterfield Designs Indy meets your specs:

I have their Muzetto and Vertigo bags, along with their accessory pouches and some sleevecases, they are all made to a very high standard.

That's a lovely piece of work and deserves every praise - entirely hand stitched as well! Time I got my ideas and needles together I think as there seems to be a renewed demand for the top end cases again. I've made a few over the years including briefs, gladstones. vanderbilts etc. but want to give my new range an added 'twist' to make them a little different. Any thoughts from SF viewers please get in touch.

Any experience here with Property Of... Bags?
Looking at the Blake or Tommy work bag for a waxed cotton bag for work. How is the quality? Worth the price tag?
