I often carry files from my office to my car, which is about 1/4 of a mile. My office is in a building in the business district of my city. I think I'll need some kind of bag or manpurse, like the other attorneys I see around me. This bag should be able to carry at least one or two somewhat bulky files and it must look professional (duh).

Happy to research any suggestions.

Not the most functional, but I love the look of my Jack Georges briefcase. If I'm hauling a lot of material, I use the rolly-cart.

If a moderate amount, I use an over the shoulder briefcase from LL Bean (appears more like a messenger bag as opposed to a briefcase).

I have a sturdy bag from Fossil that was under $100, and it works great. It is more messenger bag that briefcase, but it is my style.

I have this bag.

It was a gift my wife gave me about 5 years ago. From that site, it looks like it retails at $1800 but it could be found on sale and the price goes a fairly long way because the bag holds up. I carried a fairly heavy 15" laptop in it daily for a couple years along with a bunch of documents. I am conscious of the fact that the Prada label does signal something to others but the rare person who comments on it usually says something positive.

$1800 for a NYLON briefcase?! You've got to be kidding me. Do you have any idea what the margins are on that bag? How much you paid for the Prada name on a nylon bag?
