suggestions for a tote

  1. i'm looking for a leather tote i can carry my school folders in. i'm considering the coach legacy business tote in black, but don't know if i want to spend $500...but haven't found anything else i like. any suggestions on similar size/style of a different brand?? btw, i just joined tpf and i'm already at home =)
  2. If you can do without the leather, the Herve Chapelier totes are great, comes in lots of sizes and colors and are very well priced.
