Hi Erin, I know this clearly isn't the same thing, but I have to say that I was impressed by this tote I found... ok ok ok .... it is LLBean, my Mom's favorite, but you have to hand it to those Mainers, they know classic, quality, and affordability :)http://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/38451?feat=507304-GN2
OH my gosh -- Lesley -- you are a lifesaver! I've been sleuthing for weeks now for an appropriate work travel bag for my laptop and other misc. crap. I really like the one you linked to. I also love this one in both black and dark brown: http://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/63272?feat=46077-ppxs&dds=yMuch, much more affordable. Thanks lady and thanks to the great state of Maine. You may have solved my problem!
Yay!! I am so glad you like them! The coolest part about LLbean is that if anything ever happens to their gear, you just send it back and they either fix or replace it. I was just sent a brand new suitcase after my strap failed (understandable after all the journeys I took it on since college). I really like the woven one too... I finally decided my favorite is the dark leather town and country. Let me know if get one!! I bet it will look even cooler the more you wear it in.
oooh, i want it!
