I have been looking for the longest time for a nice leather/nylon, good quality simple tote. I need it to be very large, because i need to carry a3+ folders inside. which is why i need a shoulder strap on it, as the bag will be loaded. These are the styles that i like alas all of them are over the budget. http://www.flotoimports.com/PianaCanvas-luggage.html and this longchamp is exactly what i was after but its $335, the version without the shoulder strap (or leather corners) is $145! how can it be more than double just for a strap! come on! Im considering just buying the plain le pilage version, but im scared i will be kicking myself in the future because of the weight on my hands. https://www.longchamp.com/en/online_shop/index.html i know that the above are more designer bags, but any non -designer bag i look at seems to be very dowdy and bleh. Is it so hard to find a cheap(er) good quality and good design bag? I have a week till college starts and i doubt i will find a bag in time. A local store near me had a cheap duffel bag for $40 i might resort to, but i know it will fall apart in a month or two.
