I have read elsewhere that one must match one's bag with one's shoes, especially if they are both leather; brown leather bag, brown shoes, etc.
I am trying to avoid getting two bags, since I have both black and brown leather shoes. I am a recently graduated designer (product), so we can get away with to a certain extent, casual dressy clothing to interviews (tie, dress shirts, dress shoes, dress slacks, no suit), but we carry laptops (to present our digital work) to every interview and also notebooks, portfolio etc.
I just need a bag to fit a 13 inch Macbook. I was thinking of getting a grey wool bag like this one:
Instead of leather, I thought a grey wool would give an air of classy without looking too dressy but not too casual either... and also it would probably match both brown and black dress shoes, without having to buy leather bags to match my shoes.
Any feedback? Much appreciated, Thank you!
