    Hi guys I have just started my college life and Im planning to buy a backpack. But do backpacks like this (http://store.americanapparel.com.hk/rsa0508.html?cid=49-752&c=Cypress / Natural) go well with a shirts/tees + chinos/jeans style? And i wonder which colour should i choose, true navy or khaki?

    P.S.: My wardrobe consists mainly of Navy,Grey,White,Black, a bit of light blue/khaki/burgundy.

    I would really appreciate if i can get some help here. Thanks a lot guys! :)

    Just buy something simple and that isn't too big. Girls don't really care about your backpack unless it's huge or ugly.

    This belongs on the SW&D section.

    But I think for what you're looking for, Filson bags will be the most highly recommended SF-approved item.

    Orvis also makes a great one that's more Men's Clothing than SW&D

    I agree, i've used my black wool filson duffle bag for about two years in college and it's a great all around bag. Looks great as well

    Customhide makes a sweet backpack in leather. I wear it on my motorcycle as I cruise about the city fighting crime.

    Something like this perhaps?

    All the college and school boys around here have them.

    Or how about something like my school/college backpack?

    A global trend I see, I LOL'd when I saw a grown man (least I thought) walk around campus with a backpack similar except it was Power Rangers/Sesame Street.

    I agree with duffwiley, a simple backpack will suffice IMO
