I'd say my favorite brands are:

AG Spaulding
Goldpfeil*
Fred Perry*
Prada
Loewe
Tanner Krolle*
Connolly*
Mulberry*

(The ones with "*" above are brands without reviews in this thread, I think--I might have missed a post.)

I also like Delvaux from the pictures, but haven't been able to see their stuff in person, as it's really hard to find in the US.

Another brand that I've been interested in is Want Les Essentiels. www.wantessentiels.com

I don't know if they make bags, but I have a Smythson wallet that I love.

Also, they're not for me, but I saw these bags on CoolHunting.com. http://www.pietbreinholm.dk/


do you have any personal experience with tanner Krolle? looks interesting to me

I have the Trudeau bag from Want les Essentiels. Got it a year ago. I am a fan of their stuff. Well made, unique looking without being gaudy or ostentatious.

I honestly don't know much about their bags. I've only seen their wallets and portfolios in person. Tanner Krolle used to be sold at Bergdorfs, but hasn't been sold there for a couple years.

Anyhow, I have a wallet in pigskin and a portfolio in the waxy type leather (I'm not sure what it's called).

Tanner Krolle is a brand with a lot of heritage and I think a couple royal warrants. I think, similar to Asprey, they've been trying to make themselves a little more current. In fact, Tanner Krolle is probably a similar type of style as Asprey except Tanner Krolle doesn't make jewelry.

I've been meaning to go to the Flagship store in London, but haven't had a chance to.

Saw these two new "Hold-all" totes from Altadena Works; they even look butch enough for most heteros For a full-leather, Made-in-USA tote, $338 isn't bad at all- I'm considering the black one:

I got the one in Oak and it arrived today. I was impressed with the quality and workmanship. It's a really well made bag. But I'm still on the fence of whether to keep it. I still think it looks a little feminine.

I'm in need of a new bag some time this year. I'll probably be going back to school and will need something that can handle carrying a couple books(my sketchbooks are usual 9x11) a bunch of pens, pencils, whatever.

I sifted through this thread and some others to come up with a small list of what caught my eyes; any help on suggestions, eliminations, or alternatives would be really appreciated.


Saddleback - I really like the look and people say it's made of tough stuff, but the weight may bother me. Als, as much as I like them, they do look a bit Indiana Jones dress up.

http://www.saddlebackleather.com/cat...k-Coffee-Brown

http://www.saddlebackleather.com/cat...n-Dark-Tobacco

Grafea: It's kind of the alternative to the saddleback I was looking at, looks lighter and a bit more modern.
http://www.grafea.co.uk/shop/Brown_L...Briefcase.html

ChrisTibor: It's price, but I really like the colour combo on it. It's going in a totally different direction but it probably would fit me more then something "rugged".

http://shop.christibor.com/spring-su...0/bank-2.html#

I like all of them, so really having a hard time deciding, I wouldn't mind searching out some more alternatives that are a bit more modern since I think it might fit me a bit better, but even after reading every page of the thread a lot of the modern ones are not my thing. The Bree's looked nice, but the newer stuff is not to my liking.

I guess you're in the uk, I bought the full monty and it's working out nicely: http://www.htleather.co.uk/catalogue...ase.html#brief I bought it on ebay from a forum member, so I didn't end up paying full price...

The bag does look well constructed based on the pics. Do you think it's the long drop that makes it look feminine?

Can you share pics? I have heard some good things about Henry Tomkins. I have never seen one irl though. Glad to hear it's working out nicely.

love that. what is it? or just some off-brand thing?
post #660 of 2775
I wanted something cheap and functional for an overnight stay in NYC. Picked this up for $70.00, and horrible branding aside, I like it. It's... Summery. I also hate all the leather bags out there due to weight and cost. This thing is serious prole ground compared to the other bags being discussed here, but it's a functional flight bag - not made of leather, and not costing $$$$$.
