Used J.Crew Artisan bag.
The Artisan bag has now been discontinued, and it's impossible to find.
I managed to snag this one a year or so ago on ebay while the last remaining few were still popping up once in a while.

Description from J.Crew:

“A traditional Florentine craftsman’s design, detailed with solid antiqued brass hardware. We use thick, scratch-resistant oiled leather from Holland—it takes the tannery a month to age it just right. Leather two-buckle closure. Adjustable horizontal straps to expand opening for more room. Interior back-wall pocket. Import. 1″-wide removable, adjustable shoulder strap with shoulder protector fully extends to 50″. 13″H x 16 5/8″W x 6″D.”

As you can see, the leather has developed a nice patina, and will look better with age.
There's an ink blot on the bottom of the bag, but it's on the bottom, so it's not really noticeable.

It can easily fit a 15" MacBook Pro, along with a few notebooks, books, etc.
I mostly used it for luggage, stuffing it with clothes for short trips.
