I have this bag from the 2004 season in a cotton lined wool llannel. My wife uses it more often then I do, (I carry a first season Varvatos calfskin when I am not using my utilitarian and cheap Timbuk2 messenger). At that time it was only being carried by Odin and Drinkwaters. A few more stores have it now though. I am not going to get another version of it, but thought I'd recommend it as a good man-bag. It is big enought to carry lots of stuff and never, ever be mistaken as a purse when carried as a messenger, and is spacious enough in backpack form for weekenders. Anyway, just thought that I'd share the love. http://www.stevenalan.com/shop/custo...=17448&cat=591 Oh, and if Drinkwaters carried the bag (the wool flannel and the canvas, for $235, vs Steven Alan's $275, retail). So to plug a friend, his prices are definitely lower than NYC prices by a significant margin.
