    This is a very good question. I was surprised to see nearly all the students at a semi-elite MBA school carrying the same generic laptop bag, during a recent visit. These guys must of had some serious school pride, because had the school insignia on it, was very generic and black canvas.

    I think you can get a nice canvas bag and would prefer the looks of one over a cheap leather bag, just so you can say its made of leather.

    I want to get a new briefcase/laptop bag, but also don't want to look feminine. Its not been an easy search.


    Why don't you want to look feminine? You don't find girls attractive?

    Masculinity is more attractive to chicks.

    Whether they admit that or not is a different matter.

    I am leaning towards getting the Glaser Flaptop.

    Maybe it was given to them by the school.

    It is time to see what age brings to a Glaser.


    This picture makes me want to buy a Glaser Flaptop. When did you purchase this?

    Beautiful.

    Yep seriously. He showed me the bottle himself in the factory.

    Myron told me the same. However, I failed to inquire if that only applied to the type of leather used for his bags. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    Two of my recently acquired treasures. Swaine Adeney wrap-round document case (chestnut) and a Filson Field Satchel. Colors are a bit off; phone camera.

    The last image is the same bag, with the fastening straps removed.


    Purchased both of these,how does one care for these cases? Any conditioner recommendations?

    Late 1997, I think, perhaps 1998. They are lovely.

    Has anyone tried using shoe cream to darken the color of a brown bag? I have a pretty generic tan bag that I would like to try to use aharris's shoe darkening/antiquing method on, but just want to make sure it won't screw it up.
