    Jack Georges Briefcases

    Can anyone speak to the quality of these briefcases? I'm looking for something more formal than Filson, Saddleback, et al around the $400-$600 (not ready for SAB yet) price point and like the look of their stuff. Thanks.

    Recommendations on a new softside briefcase

    Need to tap the hive mind on this one: I need a new bag as my Tumi has bit the dust. I've been searching old threads and it seems that M&W, Custom Hide, and Glaser are popular with the peoples. So far, the M&W has the best "look" to me, but I thought I'd throw it out there to see if there...
