Hey guys, sale ends tonight so I need some quick help!

Can anyone comment on the quality of the Urban Outfitters messenger bag? Its cheap


Canvas, leather

Good enough for school? I know obviously it wont be of superior high quality but I just dont want it to fall apart in a week. A year is fine.



Converse by John Vavartos. Buy or not? How is the fit compared to BOO? I think im a small in BOO, universal small.


Lark and Wolf by Steve Alan

Also,

Obey white shirt.

how is the fit compared to BOO, slim?

I can only pick 2 out of the three, help!
The shirts are meant to be worn casually.

Thanks for the help!

I've used a $12 military surplus canvas bag with no lining or structure carrying books to and from class for the past 2 years and have yet to encounter a problem with it. I'm sure it'll be fine.

The blue shirt looks slimmish i guess. I dunno about BoO. They don't seem to fit like the BoO shirts i have

go for the converse by JV and Obey, the fits are much better and the quality is higher than L+W.

the canvas bags are decent, quality is above h&m... and it's a canvas bag. you can't do much wrong in that dept.

L&W stuff is okay, tried both the Omaha store had on today... your better off saving your $$$ and hitting up B&S or ebay.

but if you have access to a B&M UO you might see if they have any of the Fred Perry stuff on clearance... I almost nabbed a gingham like oxford for 19.99 (msrp 99.99 IIRC) this afternoon.
