The Filson 256 is fantastic. I have the navy one and love it.

 

I have the 257 in tan (bought when on sale from Brooks Brothers). It's certainly tough, but the capacity is unimpressive for a bag that size - my 15" MacBook Pro barely fits in with its protective sleeve.

I can't stand unlined leather. I bought this Marc Jacobs bag a couple of weeks ago from Mr Porter for much less ($400):

http://www.mrporter.com/product/395028

It's fully lined, made entirely of leather including the strap, has nice hardware including tab closures that are way more usable than leather belt-and-buckle closures, and it can take my MacBook Pro despite being significantly smaller than the Filson 257. I happen to love green, but it's also available in black.

 

I think it's official - Filson is now charging a designer premium over the intrinsic value of its bags, like Mismo, Porter or Want les Essentiels de la Vie (I must confess I never understood the attraction of Mismo).

anyone handled the Everlane backpacks? What do you guys think of the general design and quality for the price ($75?).

Going to be used to carry a laptop (has built in pocket) and occasional weekend roadtrip.

stopped by Barneys tonight to exchange the red Bal bag with an ugly mark. Initially I wanted to get the red to add Pop to my 3 coats that I will be wearing this winter but maybe come spring I will be tired of the red so I decided to get a brown one with no glazing which looks more natural. Tonight, I noticed it was pretty busy and I found out that it was the launch of Jay Z 's collaboration with different brands and the products started to sell tonight.

It looks to be from the Apolis A/W 2011 collection, but I can't find any details on their site.

Any ideas/.

I searched the thread but saw no mention of Frye bags -- does anyone have any comments on their quality?  I'm interested in their Logan Flap Briefcase.  It's tempting right now as amazn's 25% off code shaves $125 from the normal cost, but I'm not sure if it's well-constructed.  (I'm also looking at the Allen Edmonds Double Strap) Thoughts? Alternatives?

Have you thought about Saddleback leather? they make some hardcore bags with a similar aesthetic, and possibly lower in cost with better materials, and construction.

Yeah --  I like the sturdier construction of the Saddleback bag, especially their "Front Pocket Briefcase".  Their leather also looks much more substantial and rigid than the Frye bag.   But, I think the Saddleback stuff has too much hardware (4 metal rings on the bottom and an extra 2 on each side) and I really want quick-release clasps instead of regular buckles (like you see if you zoom into the bottom-right corner of the third image for the Frye bag).

 

Does anyone know if Saddleback makes anything with a quick release?  Otherwise, any recommendations on a messenger-style breifcase that looks like the Frye, with the sturdiness of the Saddleback and with quick-release buckles? 

 

Basically, I want a bag like this, but with quick-release:

 

 

  Options?

It turns out that the bag in the picture (Custom Hide's Scholar w/ Pockets) does have quick-release clasps....

 

Can anyone comment on their quality?  I searched the forum, but most of the posts are several years old.
