    Suggestions? I prefer a minimalist attachÃ[​IMG] case, mainly to hold a 12"laptop, battery, and charger. It just needs 1 compartment and maybe a couple pockets. The smaller it is the better. I don't want to go much over 1500. I sort of wish there was an Asprey in montreal since they always seem to have nice stuff. I had a robusto before, but that's a sore subject. I may just replace it with a Laguito in brown taiga but haven't decided yet... Also, messenger bags are out of the question since i dont want to ruin my clothes. I'm going to have a look at holt's after i leave the office but i'm not getting my hopes up.

    I would be interested in finding recommendations for a similar bag to that Bottega veneta lambskin.

    What is your price range?

    About $1000 to $3000US.

    So won't be able to afford a Hermes bag but certainly would like to find a good, hard-wearing leather bag suitable for work. Recommendations for a similar style to the above bag although I would also consider other leather bags (been also eyeing the LV Robusto bag).

    I'm not a fan of soft bags for business, but that's just me. For around $1500, Ralph Lauren has a nice, black, slim, proper lid-over-body case that I believe is made by Swaine. Beautifully finished.

    There are some very nice "designer" bags on Bluefly right now.

    Now we just need someone to post some Bluefly coupon codes.

    I'd suggest Goldpfeil from Germany! I have stock of dozens of new Goldpfeil briefcases in Toronto. High quality leather with understated elegance! I have them listed on Ebay at The Goldpfeil Shoppe.
