Hi, I'm looking for a nice, probably colourful work bag - has to be able to fit an A4 file in. Any thoughts?

What's your budget? Oasis have some ace bags at the moment

{{ this one is £34 and could go lower in the sales}}

TK Maxx!! Real leather/labels that rrp £100-300 under £50.

I'm wary of TK max, because a lot of the products in it were never for sale at full price so I think the discount is phoney However, definitely worth a look for bags anyway.

Even if they weren't sold full price, they would be the same spec as those that were, just excess stock. TK Maxx make no secret that they're not a sale outlet but buy direct from factories. For example I found a Gucci bag on red, all that happened was boutiques didn't run those bags in red (they did in brown and grey - same bag) so they went to tk maxx. I wanted a red bag and got a labelled leather one for the price of a high street one: there was no 80% off but the product was good value. No one sees the price tag.
Therefore if you forget the marketing stuff about saving 60% and just think of ballpark prices for that particular label/spec/material you do definitely get value (if you steer clear of the odd brands no one's ever heard of unless it's leather and we'll stitched).

TK Maxx bags are great value. It's my go to shop when I want a good quality leather bag for under £100.
