Ideas for messenger style notebook bag? (no canvas/nylon etc)
Looking for a messenger style bag that will hold my 13" macbook pro.
Prefer something on the classier/business side of style, since I bring it to meetings etc.
Would like leather or some other alternative, trying to stay away from any nylon/canvas type material... i dont want to look like im going camping, or to highschool, im not cool enough for that style, lol.
exception would be something like LV treated canvas is ok, for instance ive considered this one, since i already have the damier graphite wallet/belt
Trying to expand my search to other choices and designs.
i am open to any suggestions under $1500ish... i am positive there are some great quality bags well under that price, but thats why im posting here, i figure some of you guys know some good ones.

I picked up a John Varvatos one this summer for around 600. Fits my 15 inch macbook pro no problems along with a small binder. All brown leather with a a good solid zipper. Haven't had an issue yet and the quality seems very good thus far.

No matter how nice or expensive, nothing says "I am NOT a baus" as well as a messenger bag. it says, "see this strap? I can't afford a hotel room to keep my crap in while I am here desperately trying to sell you stuff. And, I have no underlings to schlep my crap around, so I need this strap so my arm doesn't fall off when I walk eight blocks to save cab fare."
Seriously, if you are walking in to a meeting with a messenger-size bag, make sure there isn't a strap hanging off of it. It is call a briefcase.

i am very casual... my work attire is jeans and a polo/golf shirt, or tshirt...i work in the affiliate marketing industry (self employed entrepreneur, so i am the "baus") and 90% of the potential business connects i meet with are in the 20-30yo range... everyone i meet with is a 6 figure+ earner (some 7 figure), but they are still young (i am 30 myself) and the majority of them also use messenger bags, or even straight up backups. having a laptop and/or ipad with me all the time is just part of our lifestyle.
my "business" meetings are typically at 1 of 3 places... bar on the beach... upscale steakhouse... or strip club. a brief case is WAY too formal for the way we live.

You would most likely NOT be taken serious if you would show up in a suit+tie at an internet marketing convention.. In this business its typically the one who under-dresses the most with the most $. (A perfect public example could be Mark Zuckerberg)We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.

Try Wilson's Leather, Kenneth Cole, or Saddleback. Three different price ranges and quality, but all three look good, have leather products, and are durable.

I have one of the Hunter series from this company. They make some really nice stuff for a decent price. I've got a 13" macbook pro and it fits in with room for other books and stuff
