But Leather bags can go on sale at the end of the season, whereas Filson bags don't go on sale very often, and when they do, its only 50% off. I just picked up a Tods holdall on Mr. P, for ~360. Sure, its not a Brigg holdall, but I'd rather have that than a Filson. Same deal for briefcases, I think I saw a Globe trotter attache for 500 on Mr. P.
I guess I understand the desire to not give a crap if it gets dirty. That makes sense, I suppose.
