    Hello gentlemen. I'm a Pediatric Neurologist and like to carry around an assortment of exam tools and toys to distract fussy children. I am looking for a nice bag to carry around my stuff. I've tried A couple different Tumi and Jack Spade bags, but nothing has felt right. I want the traditional doctor's bag style, but I want it to be up to SF quality. The standard bags that all the medical websites and stores carry are just not up to par. I'm hoping some of you have come across some nice options over the years and can provide some good suggestions. Thanks!

    The classic "top frame" briefcase is, to my eyes, pretty much identical to the stereotypical doctor's bag.

    You can get them from Swaine Adeney Brigg and Brooks Brothers (the BB ones are, I believe, made by SAB), but they're not inexpensive:

    If you do a search for top frame briefcase, particularly on a site such as eBay, you should get some second-hand examples in good condition, too. There are other brands that make them, as well.

    I have, and love, a Bill Amberg Rocket bag (mine is dark brown). As a warning, it is NOT cheap. I believe you can get them in cordovan now, as well as a few colors in bridle.
    Not mine, but a picture:

    Great suggestion. I love their bags. I will have to wait until I finish fellowship to afford one, unless I can convince my program that this is an acceptable use of education funds!
