Need a good laptop bag.

I need a good, hip, stylish, messenger-type laptop bag. Not Timbuk-2, not Chrome, not anything too "Hi! I do business!" looking...

15" Macbook Pro, may also carry iPad, charging supplies, maybe a moleskine and pens...
It seems like every thread around laptop bags eventually devolves into Timbuk-2 and Chrome, and I want to avoid those for two reasons:
1 -- I have a Timbuk-2 general messenger bag and, while it is great at what it does, I don't think I want that for my laptop bag. I want something a bit more stylish.
2 -- Two co-workers have Chrome bags, and yeah... I don't want to be the third.
3 -- I want something that maybe every other person at industry events doesn't have. I know, I know...do I want image, or a good bag? I want both.
A bit about me, personality-wise...I am mid 30's, work in a fairly casual industry (chucks, slim jeans, usually t-shirts, sometimes nicer button-downs), I play the loud indie rock, I like the vintage things. I grudgingly admit that there are some on MeFi who would probably dub me a hipster, though I would argue that I am both far too old and far too established for that label to apply. I don't want a stodgy bag. I want a bag that fits my lifestyle.
Leather might be a plus. And I like the look of old army field bags. And 1960's/70's briefcases. And I kind of like the Muzetto bags from Waterfield.
Suggestions? Oh, and I am a guy.
