Something classic that will age beautifully? I can't really justify Mulberry prices (been trying to pick up a vintage one but it's a fakes-laden minefield).

Can anyone recommend one in tan or chocolate, preferably? Will be eternally grateful :-)

Budget around £300??

I have the largest satchel style bag they do, with an optional shoulder pad and top handle. Mine is red, everyone loves it and stops me in the street to ask about it. But lots of classic and funky colours to chose from. They also do a "business bag" which is more briefcasey.

Have a look at Scaramanga too.

Thanks for coming back with ideas so quickly, folks.

I think I'm after something more briefcase-y, IYSWIM?

Any other suggestions out there?

Hidesign (which I think is the male Radley) or Barbour do lovely men's briefcase/bags both stocked in John Lewis

I bought my husband the Barbour one from John Lewis and its gorgeous. Its a lovely brown and it looks like it will last forever.

Thanks for the recommendations everyone. I've gone for the Barbour one
