Hi ladies! I've just started work and I meet clients frequently. I need a structured bag/briefcase that is big enough to fit a laptop and documents and looks appropriate with a suit and the line I'm in (finance). Any ideas on this? Thanks!

Hi! You can try the business range by Loewe. I recently dropped by their boutique and noticed some really classy-looking business carriers available in dark tones that will match most business outfits. Try browsing at their website to get a better idea of their range (http://www.loewe.com)... I think it's important to get a bag that complements the image you wanna project to your clients at work, but it's equally important to get one that you really love carrying about as well. I see it as a reward for working! Hope you get one that really pleases you in the end! ;)

What is your price range? Do you have any specific preferences as to color, pockets, type of leather, etc.?

i'd be willing to pay up to $2-3k, i see this as an investment that will carry me through my career! probably a type of leather that is fairly hardy to withstand the knocks of travelling? i'd be gutted if it got scratched! black/honey/cognac colours would probably be classic but i'm also open to other colours!

Ignes makes a really good working bag called the "Ormala". And the best part? It's fully customizable. You choose the hardware, leather, lining, and any modifications you may want to suit your work life. It's also rock bottom price for a fully customized bag (under $500). If you're curious, check out the Ignes sub-forum or the official site. The girls at the Ignes subforum already rave about the Ormala as a working bag.

Re: the Ignes - I don't have one, but an Ormala is definitely something that I would consider for a work bag. Some of the custom pictures show a patent piece on the bottom (as opposed to leather) which might seem tacky but could end up saving you from scratching up the leather on the bottom of the bag. The bags also have little feet on the bottom which help with that too.
