    Jack-Spade-style briefcase for cheap

    I really like the look of Jack Spade's briefcases but I can't afford to spend ~300+ on one. Can anyone suggest a similar type of bag (or how to get a Jack Spade for cheap)? I need to carry a 13-inch macbook (in an Incase sleeve) plus a water bottle but I would like to have the option of putting more in there if necessary. I can spend up to $150. Thanks in advance everyone, you guys are awesome

    I'm actually selling my Jack Spade messenger bag in black. It's used but in very good shape. Selling for $55 shipped.

      If you're looking for a new one, TJ Maxx has a lot of real deal Jack Spade bags for under $200.

      I'll check whats at my local store next time and snap some photos.

          Knomo is a good brand to look for. They've got a tan leather offering for about $150 on Amazon that looks nice, but there are plenty of other options in your price range.

          **Edit**
          Also this black bag looks great.

            I don't know if you can wait, but Jack Spade ran a pretty good sale this spring and may do it again next year. My wife got me a Davis Waxwear Brief for like $130 from the Jack Spade store. http://www.jackspade.com/waxwear-dav...or=429#start=1

            I got caught in a downpour yesterday, and the bag kept my files bone dry.

              Angus – Wow, thank you for the Knomo suggestion. They look like a good brand and their Tokyo bag looks good (and ships internationally for free, making my life easier). Do you have any experience with them? As a side note, the tan leather bag you linked to is showing up as $325 for me.

              bennynojets – Thanks for the tip, I'll try to look out for that next spring. I am looking to purchase something sooner though.

                Well dang, Amazon must have kicked the price up again. When I posted, the dark brown and black were about $350, so it might've been too good to last.

                Glad you like the look, though. I should've hat-tipped Primer Magazine for featuring the Tokyo a while back. Primer gave the bag a pretty glowing review, but I don't have firsthand experience to share.

                  Wait, the tan version is still $147 when I follow the link. Might want to try it again (the actual color is "tabac").

                      The jack spade outlet at Woodbury commons has stuff within your range (not sure about the Davis). I got a jack spade + Barbour collaboration briefcase there a month or two ago for around $150. Maybe call them, see if they have what you want and will ship? (Assuming your not near enough NYC to go)

                        Not sure why you can't see them, but it's this bag: http://www.zappos.com/jack-spade-nyl...fcTest=fcl%3A0

                        Let me know if you're interested.

                          I'm headed to the nicer area of town with that TJ Maxx tomorrow. I'll take some photos of what I find, and if anything suits your fancy, we can work something out.

                            They actually ran the sale again a month or two back. So they might run it before next spring but if you can't wait, maybe try looking on Ebay.

                            I actually have a brand new Filson bag sitting here for when and if I need it so I'm not stuck trying to pick up something when there's nothing on sale.

                              BigBayesian – thanks for the tip

                              Lukeduke – working for me now, must have been on my end. I am not interested in a messenger-only bag but thanks anyway.

                              Vicious49 – I'll keep an eye out, thanks.

                              AngusM – Yep, amazon price games. Not looking for a messenger-only bag but thanks.

                              I will be busy next week so I won't have time to check this but if you write I'll respond when I am free.
