I'll be transferring to university shortly after Christmas, so that leaves me with about half a month. I own two backpacks, one is a bright maroon colored backpack, and the other is a dark blue one with a leather bottom. Both of these are typical Jansports. I'd like to have an alternative to having to use backpacks, as I plan on wearing a sportcoat, and occasionally a suit. Because of my budget limitations, are there cheap alternatives to backpacks that could look professional? Preferably, I'd like to avoid looking like I'm following a fashion trend; because of this, I'm not sure if messenger bags will really do it for me. Are there good leather briefcases I should be aware of? What do you think of this one? http://www.wilsonsleather.com/product/index.jsp?productId=11746448&CAWELAID=413820006 It can be worn messenger style, but can also be carried around like a briefcase. I'd like to go a bit cheaper than that (I'd like to find one between 40 to 60 dollars if possible), but still relatively good looking, and leather.
