    Not an an expert but nothing really popped out there for me, at least with the briefcases. And it cou;ld just be the photography, but something didn't look right about those bags.

    Bleh, I just noticed for the second stock of the Unfold bags they changed the strap, I really liked the look of it with the black strap, but now they've covered it in some grey felt or some crap.

    Such a small change makes me not like it, weird.

    Yeah, I guess I'm just a sucker for the contrast of a tanned leather bag and a black strap; looked back and I was interested in that Chris&Tibor bag because of the same reasons.

    Well the search continues... because of a f@#$ing felt strap.

    Upping the game by reposting something that was already posted? Is that considered upping the game or going back at a possible peak? [​IMG]

    I got unlucky to make this for me - a repro of faith's 1960's mail bag. I think he took this pic right after oiling, so the bag is a bit darker than it would be otherwise. 8 oz front flap with 4 oz on the rest of the bag, horse-hide strap. [​IMG]

    Don't want to quibble over language, but I think your sentence was in wrong whether I focus on the again or not.

    But I guess you just wanted to get back on track after my ugly bag posting(which was also a double posted, but was just showing the old vs new)

    I thought the unfold bag would make a good backpack, I think carrying around a briefcase to school would be too nobbish.

    Anybody know where I can purchase a Superdry backpack? I need a new backpack and they seem to be pretty decent for the price.

    Japanese brand Yukino is doing a collaboration with United Arrows on some lovely, minimal, calf MIJ bags in a number of colors. Reminds me of Delvaux, Hermes, etc. with the simplicity of styling. Pricing is reasonable, as well, around $300-400, and there are no markings/logos except on the inside. Had a chance to check them out in person and the quality-to-price ratio is excellent.

    Sometimes ASOS.com has them, too.

    oh those MA+ - I want to touch.... Thanks for posting. Re Superdry - I googled and got this: www.cult.co.uk but they don't have the rucksacks either. I seem to recall they had a pretty wide range of Superdry stuff. Perhaps they have been discontinued? You could try ebay.co.uk I guess...

    Why does the grey have to be out of stock? [​IMG] It looks like a really nice alternative to the Delvaux I want.
