Men's Formal Work Bag Recommendation

Hi Guys, I'm looking to get a new men's work bag and would appreciate some recommendations.

My last 2 work bags were from Pedro and they were not very durable.
Probably couldn't last for even a year.

Anyone here using Braun Buffel Leather bags ? Would appreciate some feedback on them.

All other recommendations would be appreciated as well. Preferably leather bags . Budget is max about $300 ~ . I know braun buffel is well in the range of $500 and above and I'm willing to stretch my budget to that amount if its really good quality.

Thanks !

Actually genuine leather is one of the lowest grades of leather around. Typically peeling will occur because the colour is an extra layer on top of the actual leather instead of being actually dyed into the leather.

Hey, not trying to put you down. Just for sharing purposes.

Anyway, for better value for money, my suggestion is to look for Full-Grain (highest quality) or Top-Grain (2nd highest quality) leather. These products will literally last you a lifetime if you take care of them well.

Purchase from brands specialising in high quality leather goods and not "fashion" brands. I think can try Coach for starters.

Well, in terms of value for money.. They will be the best.

But if you're interested in something that is fashionable and you can change every few years then different lah.

Actually depends on what kind of consumer you are bah. No right no wrong.
