"Hartmann has made good bags for decades. Might be hard to find one for $50 though.  Generally - look for top grain, not split grain leather - the thicker the better. Sometimes you can find "belting" leather - that is great. "

Advice on buying a leather bag

I'm looking to buy a used leather briefcase and/or messenger bag for college. Probably won't buy until later in the summer, but I'm trying to get some research in. Does anyone have any vintage or modern brands to recommend? Right now I'm looking at something along these lines. Hoping to keep it under $50.See More
