    Yup. Only works if you dress goth-ninja (Raf, Ann D, RO etc.) head to toe.

    The latest raf stuff isn't very goth ninja at all. More techy/futuristic than goth. The raf x eastpak one wouldn't look good with a traditional outfit, but i think it could still work. The duffle pack might be easier. Not for me at the price, but interesting nonetheless.

    The lambskin one i posted was at south willard during the fall. Jet would know the brand. It might've been Stephen Schneider or maybe branquinho. I don't remember.

    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.


    that one is crazy lol

    Backpacks are meant to be functional more than anything. Their basic design doesn't lend itself to "looking good". So, your options are limited to not using one (ie, using something else to carry whatever stuff you need around), or getting something unassuming. That tumi one that was just posted was pretty solid imo.

    im really liking the tumi leather ones, and i saw them onsale somewhere cant remember right now, but they look really classy yet practical, like this one http://www.tumi.com/backpacks_messen...90170#Features what do you guys think?

    I like it. Simple, practical, looks nice. However, do you realize how ridiculously small it is? You'll probably be able to fit a binder, a textbook, and an ultraportable laptop at most. At $445 I hope the sale is at least 50% off...

    Have you considered a messenger bag? I personally much prefer their styles over backpacks, plus they are easier to get in and out of on the move.

    Quality to price ratio on Tumi products is very good, but get something that looks a little better.

    Imo Tumi is alright for the price, but nothing special. If anything I would say it is slightly overpriced compared to equal quality items from other similar brands. Plus most of their items are very very bland.

    I'm thinking the blandness adds to the simplicity and overall look and design to Tumi bags...however I myself prefer something other than Tumi!

    Eek, that bag looks identical to the offerings you will see ominously displayed for sale on the pavements of tourist ghettos. Best avoided.

    If you want something stylish, go for a messenger bag in full leather. Well chosen, they will go with pretty much anything you decide to wear. Those Tumi ones linked below look a step in the right direction.

    Go on superfuture and ask where to get Le Mem backpacks [​IMG]


    But seriously, if you want a regular backpack with no branding in different colors:
    http://store.americanapparel.net/rsanc501.html No one is going to pretend it's amazing quality but they have their appeal.
