Why do some people choose messenger bags instead of backpacks? I was thinking of getting those Timbuck2 bags but then I realised I had no particular use for it.
What if there were no hypothetical questions?

Try the Tumi brand.
Not cheap (but not Hermes either), but good quality.

Coach has some very nice men's messenger bags without logos (logos are terrible on anything, especially bags).


Also, if this is for work and there is actually a level of functionality involved: https://lawyerist.com/60015/your-briefc ... -terrible/

Goes with my suits better at meetings. And I'm not carrying much. Doesn't justify the use of a backpack. I do use a backpack when I'm travelling with gear for shoots or out for a longer period of time.

Depending on the look you're going for, I'd advise on the following brands...
- Rugged Material: really good quality full grain tanned leather (as opposed to the top coat most "fashion" brands use) and it's well built and reinforced at the right areas.
- Knomo bags: UK brand, not full leather but good supple quality leather bags.
- Piquadro: Italian company which makes good quality bags, the leather selection is much broader than most fashion brands with option for textured leathers.

If you're looking for a more budget option, this bag is highly recommended on reddit:
- Navali Mainstay leather

I went to Danier today and just wasn't impressed by the quality of leather. The Rudsak one was much better. I'm just worried about the reviews regarding the quality of the stitching and zippers.
