    I'm in a market for a stylish but somewhat practical bag and thought that a leather messenger bag is the way to go.

    My budget is under $200.

    I've seen some nice looking ones at Banana Republic and the ones that are out of my price range on Bluefly.com

    This one on ebay caught my eyes - http://cgi.ebay.com/Handmade-Camel-L...QQcmdZViewItem
    It seems to me they are quality bags according to the ravings reviews on the feedbacks.

    Any thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated.[​IMG]

    Looks very nice. Post some pics if you happen to buy it.

    I'm considering the duffel bag myself

    Those bags in the original post have caught my eye as well.

    I don't think I'd be happy paying retail for BR/JC quality leather goods.... just my 2 cents though.

    would be great if someone who has that ebay bag can comment on it...i agree retail for those banana or jcrew bags is too much.

    i just bought one from wilson's leather. you should check out their website, they currently have a 20% off thing going on, including free shipping with code 2031.

    nice leather, but not sure where they are made.

    i bought it from the store in northgate mall, you should give them a looksee if you like the bags online. leather is VERY soft, and will need protecting from the rain with some kind of leather protector sprays.
