    i think it looks gaudy.

    backbacks, imo, only look "good" when it's in a technical way, and if you try to "stylize" it you end up looking like a hypebeast fool (just my 2 cents).

    if you want something stylish go for a canvas messenger or shoulder tote, euro style!

    ^ I agree. I think a LV monogrammed anything would detract from your new wardrobe.

    Marc Jacobs had some fancy backpacks but that was quite a while ago and I doubt you'd find one now.
    Bottom line, you should either you get a functional, simple looking black backpack or look for another kind of bag.

    Ugh not feeling that backpack at all.

    stickonatree is right about the technical bit, get something from Northface or Oakley.

    No way. A backpack for that price is nearly an oxy-moron

    Me no like that LV one---- I have a black leather Dolce and Gabbana backpack that I've had for 12 years and it is still holding strong.

    My next bag purchase will be either of these two from Berluti.

    What could be more trying-too-hard than a backpack with a designer's name on it?

    I don't think it's that beautiful. Looks like Jan sport made something out of leather

    +1, looks like a leather sac hanging off your back...it's very hard to make a backpack stylish, the best you could hope for is oldschool chill look

    Looks like something made with the leather Rick Owens uses. Sort of cool, though I agree it does have an odd drapey unstructured look that is a little creepy. Reminds me of the pouch on the front of a kangaroo or something. On that note... I'd definitely wear it.

    I think Tumi has some nice offerings as well, but I also agree with the people who suggested a messenger bag instead. they're much sleeker, and Jack Spade makes a lot of nice ones.

    [​IMG] No idea what it is but I dig this one. I just bought an iDiom backpack but then again I dress more technical street/hypebeasty so its probably not what you're looking for. If I were to get a messenger it'd be more along the lines of acronym or bagjack. +1 for Jack Spade and Marc Jacobs too.
