    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.

    the felt is ugly, not weird that you hate it

    The whole thing is ugly.

    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.
