    Windmill, is the quality difference worth the price difference?

    I could save up for a big purchase, since this is something I'll use for years either way. It's just if the money is worth spending.

      Well, only you can decide that of course. You can get a cheap nylon bag for $10 that will do the job just as well. But a briefcase is something you'll use every day. It's a hassle to move stuff from one briefcase to another, so most likely you'll only have one. Let's say it lasts you 10 years. During that period, you'll go wear dozens of shirts, sport coats, suits, shoes, socks, and ties. But you'll carry only one briefcase.

      So it's worth spending a little money. Whether that's $40, $400 or $2400, that's a very personal decision.

      The reason I went with a more affordable bag for now is that I haven't found my "perfect" bag yet. I don't mind spending $400 on a briefcase, but it better be something I'll use for a decade.

        You're wise, Windmill. Thanks for the context for your decision

          I use my navy filson briefcase everyday and love it. It usually contains gym clothes (no sneakers) and my lunchbox. If I have to transport my laptop than I need another bag but that doesn't happen all that often. If you have a lot of stuff you could go for the Filson computerbag which is bigger. They are a little pricey but the construction is great and you can find them on sale at places like Brooks Brothers from time to time.

          I would throw out Frost River as well. I have their flight bag and use it as my weekender/carry on and it's very well built. They make a number of briefcases and messengers that are worth checking out. Price-wise, they are a little cheaper than Filson.
