    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").
