I'm a law student looking to find a stylish leather messenger bag that could store a laptop (14" Macbook) and 2 casebooks. My price range is around $200-250. Thanks!

Thanks for the suggestion. I just took a look at the Brady bags and am pretty intrigued. Were you able to find a better deal outside of their website? Which ones did you get and what can you fit in it?

go here, this is the cheapest I could find.:

I got the Windsor briefcase, the messenger with the leather flap. It's freakin gorgeous, amazing, strong bag. List price 199pounds, but at the above website, I got it $240 shipped. Came in less than a week.
It's 17x12x3.5, and I can fit my 13.3 inch laptop (vertically), two casebooks, and R2K with minimal bulge. If it was like, half an inch taller and deeper, i'd be happy, but it's gorgeous as hell and, um, isn't effeminate.
If you're going to fit your 14inch macbook with casebooks, man, you'd need a bag that's either 14 inches tall or like 7 inches deep. And both are pretty hard to find, huh?

I think i'm also gonna get the Marlborough weekender...

Man that Windsor is sick. Aesthetically, I'd like to go with the Windsor, but practically, I'm probably going to go with the Drake Work Bag. Oh GOD, I might have to do the same and pull the trigger on two bags...

I found the Drake bag here for cheaper, I think?

You might also do a search for "man bags" or bags. We've had lots of them and many elicited some good recommendations and pics.
