while i think that a really nice leather bag would technically be more in-line with what wear most of the time, i think the filson is a million times cooler, and the stiff navy twill with the wool harris tween is for me a great balance of dressy enough for when i wear a jacket and tie, and casual enough for when i wear chinos and a casual shirt.
but, it doesnt really matter to me because i primarily bought it for function and quality. its not like i walk around all day wearing it. i use it to get my stuff from point A to point B, and it will spend most of the time on the floor next to me waiting for go time.
