I bought DH a Mulberry satchel a few years back which he uses for work as a laptop bag, and he absolutely loves it. They cost a bomb so your budget won't get one of those, but I spotted this this morning while looking for something else and thought of your post. Ted Baker stuff is usually v good quality imo and passes the man-style test with my DH anyway. They have a couple of others on the JL site and 20% off Ted Baker today.
