Manhattan Messenger Bag Shopping
September 28, 2011 7:06 PM   Subscribe

I have a few hours in Manhattan tomorrow and want new messenger style laptop bag. Where should I shop?

Not sure exactly what I want. I've been using a Crumpler Dreadful Embarassment which I like but want to try something new.

I like messenger style bags in general but want something with a slightly more professional look, more like a Jack Spade or Manhattan Portage. Note, I don't necessarily need bag recommendations just some good stores that carry the things where I can browse.

I really like my Chrome Metro messenger bag. It has a seatbelt which is not the professional look you are after, but Chrome also makes more grown-up looking bags. They have a store in SoHo, on Mott Street.

Since you like Manhattan Portage, their flagship store is the Token Bag store on Elizabeth Street between Prince and Houston.

If you check out Manhattan Portage, may as well walk over to Flight 001.

You might want to check out Dunhill on 5th if only to see a thousand dollar messenger bag.

might be worthwhile to check out paragon, and see their filson section.

See Crumpler on 8th Ave. On the expensive side, but the few bags I have from them hold up extremely well (backpacks).
