Looking for an alternative to bland, traditional canvas messenger bags? The Continental Shoulder Bag ($120) offers a break from the norm with its unique construction which uses six punctured bicycle tires for a rugged exterior. Inside, it offers two simple pockets and room for standard A4-sized documents and folders; a zippered outer pocket rounds out the offering.
We won't be placing our order anytime soon, but the Louis Vuitton Monogramouflage Collection is too man-centric to pass up. inspired by the work of Takashi Murakami and sporting LV's new Monogramouflage canvas pattern (yes, we can't believe that's the real name either), the collection includes the Treillis tote ($1,610; shown), the Pegase 60 rolling suitcase ($2,570), and the Keepall 55 duffle bag ($1,930).
With plenty of people using laptop sleeves as their main computer carrier, one wonders why they never seem able to carry anything besides a laptop. Built Cargo Laptop Sleeves ($37-$47) offer neoprene construction and three external slip pockets, letting you carry a mouse, portable drive, or whatever you need along with your laptop. A great solution for those of you who use a sleeve with a messenger pouch instead of a "real" laptop bag.
