    One week left in Japan, with a little spending money left over from an internship here. Don't really have a bag other than timbuk2 messenger packs, and itching for something a little classier (but not too flambouyant, since I'm headed back to down-to-earth portland). Suggestions? Porter?

    It's made in China, as are the rest of Barbour's bags.

    That's it. You have convinced me. I am officially in love with Glaser Designs. [​IMG] What size is it, and what type of leather?

    Here are the swatches they sent me. Mine is nominally espresso brown, but I think is somewhere in between the chestnut and espresso swatches they sent. They do a lot of hand rubbing and such to the leather, so I doubt each one comes out looking the same. Also I have no idea how old the swatches are and whether they've changed.

    Size is largest carry-on size.

    That is a beautiful bag - do they offer the option of having no logos though?

    Isaac Reina has been making some nice looking bags for a few seasons now:

    I have not seen one in person though (quite limited distribution over in the US).

    Rach- I can't believe I just read through this entire thread. This is really good stuff and I enjoy your comments. Good work.

    One of the bags you haven't yet mentioned and is a personal favorite of mine is Brady bags. They are handmade in the UK since the 1880's. The current owner bought the company from the Brady grand children and he is a maker of fine leather polo saddles and ridding accessories. All made in the Midlands by hand by fine leather and fabric craftsmen. The bags are for hunting & fishing. But a few have been recently designed for town & country. Here are mine. The fishing bag is from 1986. I bought it as a dipper bag when my son was born. The rubber liner was ideal for formula, wipes and spare diapers.

    The square bag was made for the Dover Street Market. I used it to carry artwork.

    The fabric on both is a tight, twill. Much finer than canvas, The leather is a true bridle leather. I know a lot of you guys rave about Filson, but if you want a step up in refinement but with a true outdoor pedigree, then check out Brady.

    Thereabouts, yes. Also I'm sure they could leave the logo, off. Everything is MTO. I was going to do a custom logo, which I believe is $100 extra, but they needed a .eps file from photoshop, which I couldn't seem to muster in time.
