Laptop bag?

Hi. I've also been trying to find a laptop bag for my brother's 12 inch Mac notebook. I've been looking for a long time! Either bags aren't sturdy enough, or else they have not got enough style. Or they have got too much 'girly' style. (My brother will wear a flowered shirt, so he'd accept some decoration on his bag, but a plainer bag would be better for his work). Anyway, I'm curious to know if anybody can suggest anything, too (meanwhile, I continue to look...)
You can try this website for things like this:

I :heart: my crumpler. I have the Very Busy Man and it's HUGE. and still looks good after being abused for a year.
Timbuktu makes good quality messenger/laptop bags as well.
He isn't metro at all. It makes me sad sometimes, because he doesn't appreciate my love for shopping!

His laptop is 17", so it kind of tough to find a bag/backpack that fits. Thanks for suggestions! I'll look into them
