    Hi all,

    I am looking to buy a leather bag this week, however I'm not well educated in the brands.

    I have seen a dunhill bag that I would like to purchase. Can anyone recomend any other brands for me to have a look at?

    I'm a fan of timeless elegance/ bond style items.

    (P.S the bag is a laptop style bag which i can use for university then take on to work with me)

    thanks in advance

    V

    Got my saddleback leather bag a few months ago. It's very cool. They make good products that, as they say, your grandchildren will be fighting over when you're gone.

    I have Papworth briefcase which I bought about 8 years ago when it was way cheaper than now. It definitely got better with time. However, I find it now quite heavy. If I was buying a bag now, I would most likely go special order.

    Whilst these brands/ bags look very impressive, I don't find they match my taste and personality.

    The brands I was hoping to learn more about in comparison were Bally, Mulberry etc.

    Although I will look at the brands you have posted in the hope I find a style that suits me as they look like top quality goods!

    Go to Mr. Porter, search bags, great place for research. Don't rule out the new Mark Cross at Barney's, very sleek. Valextra would be the pinnacle in the sleek Bond Style as would Swaine Audney Brigg among others.

    Do you think dunhill would match this style too? They were meant to produce suits for CR in 06..

    I saw some of the mulberry bags, I really liked one..It was similar to the dunhill one but a few hundred pounds more! I even looked at Bally, but only a few styles caught my eye..still on the prowl!

    I'm sorry if that seems odd..i realise now that it looks bad its only because i was replying to very similar threads..may I add I also like other mens brands especially mulberry dunhill etc. I’m interested in continuing to post about other things and others labels.

    Hi Vorg

    I suggest you go for leather laptop bags from Soulful Collection. Affordable and best under $200. They have laptop bags in both satchels and messengers. Don't go for branded ones as they are so expensive.

    I would suggest to try J.W. Hulme Co - The first thing most of us do prior to making a purchase is to check customer reviews either on sites such as Amazon or the companies own website.

    Quote: I have a few recommendations for quality leather bags.

    1) Big fan of saddleback leather bags because they are high quality and build to last. The downside is that some of their bags are on the heavier side and a bit pricey.
    2) Roots leather bags are really popular here in Canada. They have a really cool distressed look to them, and they are super popular.
    3) Mundial Treasures sells kick ass bags, but some are more pricey than others. I really like their Boardwalk Messenger bag and it has really good reviews.
    4) If you're really looking for something posh Mullberry messenger bags are awesome!
