    I am thinking about buying a prada saffiano leather bag in either blue or red. It will probably be a fairly small one, like an attache case. What is the quality of them like and is it really that durable? I am getting it at about half retail price on sale, is that a good deal?

    Hello, im new here. I've been wondering if the louis vuitton carryall would be a good bag for a first bag within that price range, i like it, but somehow it seems too flashy. [​IMG] Or the Raf Simmons(black) thats on sale at Corner[​IMG] I mean we dont have many places that hold men bags in my country(only lacoste,armani,boss and stuff like that xD) Im looking for a holdall/weekender for like 800euros of budget, so if anybody knows some eu sites that have a decent manbags. Thanks.

    I would say, yes, it is definitely worth it.

    Prada is often a decent bet, especially on sale. Their higher-end bags (like the saffiano cases) GENERALLY use nice leathers, good hardware (riri zippers and such), and hold up very well. I like to see my Prada items in person before purchase, because sometimes the items vary, but overall I think that it sounds like a good deal.

    I think that the LV monogram carryalls, with the bunch of price increases over the past 5-6 years, are so overpriced I hardly see how they are worth it. BUT, the quality is very good and they`ll hold up well, so if you like the style, go for it.

    As for other bags, check out Yoox. They have a number of good duffles on there now.

    Not big on the white, but I really like the design of this: http://www.yoox.com/item.asp?sec=1&Y...cessoriesmen80

    I sort of want to get it to tote my laptop around with, but I don't know if I could wear that white. Oh well it's a cool bag none the less.


    looks kinda awkward to me. maybe it looks different irl and while used.

    3.1 Philip Lim designs a lot of good manbag styles for men. I like his recent calfskin leather totebags in moss green

    Not feedback, but I could use recommendations for a bag. I'd need it to carry books and stuff for high school; my current bag is 17L (12" x 20" x 6"), which seems to be a perfect size. A tote wouldn't be practical for shitty Chicago winter weather, so I'd like to find a decently stylish messenger bag or backpack. I like the styling of Filson stuff, but am interested in other suggestions. Something or the cheaper end of the spectrum would be nice.

    The leathers are very, very nice, and they use top quality hardware. Riri zippers in all of the bags I've seen and handled in person.

    I slide my netbook into this neoprene case (made by Case Logic-- about 15 bucks), which is slim enough that I can slide it into my briefcase, duffle or tote.

    There are a couple Rugby Ralph Lauren bags on ebay with Buy It Now for a cheaper canvas bag not too far removed from Filson styling. If you're in high school this would work out well.
