My side of the family does Christmas at Thanksgiving ever year. I want to get my younger brother a briefcase or messenger bag as a gift this year, and I could use some suggestions.

Essentially he needs something that will hold his laptop and some papers/files for work. I'm thinking something canvas or synthetic fabric that is still classic looking. Ideally I'm wanting to stay under $100, and I don't want anything that's faux leather. I know that's not much but we never do expensive gifts.

Does anyone have a bag they use and enjoy that fits this description?
