You'd be harder pressed to get me to search for one. I'm not saying it's not priced fairly, just that it's not something I would consider A) because it's a tote bag, and B) because it costs nearly twice as much as a Gustin duffel for far less functionality. If you're looking for a super fancy grocery bag, I guess it's not bad.

Yes and I would recommend it if you are looking for the tote shape.

The leather is awesome, and it serves a totally different purpose than the duffel.

If you commute by transit or foot, there are millions of women who use tote bags.  

 

If my household had the use for one I'd grab it.

Thanks for the feedback guys!

It's listed as unisex, but I personally couldn't pull off wearing a tote bag without feeling awkward.  It reminds me of the Friends episode when Joey has a unisex bag that everyone is weirded out by.

 

My wife as a Madewell black leather tote bag that she uses often.  I can see it being a nice present for the better half, but when it comes to man bags, i'll stick to messengers/briefcases.

Yeah, the leather & shade is really nice!  Just wish it were used in a different type of bag.  Some type of messenger bag or a leather backpack even.

Hello there, my white Low Tops arrived a couple of day ago, wonderful trainer. Once unboxed I was wondering if me feet could fit there, since the profile is really sleek and I am used to "conventional" sport shoes, maybe is beacause of the small mouth. Well, they fit perfect. For your reference I am 11 US in Converse (Chuck Taylor), 10.5 US in Alden Indy and 10.5UK in Church's, Cobbler Union and other shoe brands. Here you can see a reference with a pair of Stan Smith size 12US. My size in Gustin is 11US. Very happy with my purchase.

Or even briefcase style.  My cheap laptop bag finally bit the dust the other day - would love to see a horween leather replacement from Gustin, considering retail on one would be $500++ from most places.

Have been experimenting with the fits on Gustin a bit. I have a few things still on order, but from what I have received so far, it seems the fits run VERY slim. Their regular pants are slim fit, and their slim fits might as well be called super skinny. 

 

I suppose I'm a little bit of an outlier: I lift weights and squat, but I'm not that big of a guy. 5'10", 180#, 43" chest, 32" waist 23.5" thigh. I ordered a 32" waist in regular fit chinos which are skin tight on me, so I now have a 34" waist on order. We'll see how it fits. I'm expecting the waist to be a bit too big and the legs may still be too tight. I like their pants but I feel like it's going to be a lost cause, unless I resign to buying large and commit to extensive tailoring to get leg openings that actually fit.

 

I got a shirt grab bag and tried out the large slim fit shirt...too narrow in the chest although tolerable... So I'm trying out the large regular fit, although I don't have one of these yet.

 

FYI: if anyone is interested in a never worn pair of Gustin #17 HEAVY SLATE CHINO in size 32 straight, let me know!

 

What's a gym going guy to do? Seriously?! Everything seems to be make for super skinny guys...

You gave your sizes in everything except the Gustin's. What'd you go with for those?
