    Hi Gents,

    I rather like the Brooks Brothers harris tweed messenger bag - especially the herringbone look.. They make this in two colors shown below. I think I prefer the brown. They are ~$350 so may wait for the big sale at year end.

    Does anyone have experience with this or similar products? I am trying to get a sense of the quality. Would these be more seasonal - say fall/winter?

    Also any suggestions on who else makes similar stuff? I have googled and not found much. One would think some ancient Scottish shop would do something like this.



    Also I found an interesting twist - see the bottom two bags. Thomas Tweed creates messenger bags from used mens' suit jackets. No idea of the quality but they look very whimsical and fun!

    Hi Gents,

    No fans of the tweed messenger bag or briefcase here?

    Interesting, but more of a fashion piece than a serious bag... And it dtrikes me as too ephemereal to be worth $350.

    thanks.

    Basically agreed. But at the year end sale I could get it about 1/2 off and then maybe I care to have a nice 'fashion piece'!
