    Right lads. I'm looking for a tote because 1) I frankly don't care about the manbag stuff, I already carry a satchel or a backpack anyway and 2) I'd like something a bit smarter to carry to conferences and when I teach that can carry folder, files and tablets/laptops.

    So my chocies are a WANT Les Essentials bag of some kind. I was thinking of this one imported from Barneys - what's the deal with this sort of purchase? Is it just a straight conversion of the $ into ? Do I have to worry about duties being applied?

    I'm thinking of this for the WANT:


    WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie O'Hare Shopper Tote at Barneys.com


    In which case it'd be 137 and then whatever shipping.


    For a cheaper option there's this quite smart but more casual Fred Perry in black:

    Fred Perry | Fred Perry Weekender Tote Bag at ASOS



    And then there's this Barbour. Given that I have a barbour jacket and other Barbour things, I wonder if this'll be a bit overload on their stuff.

    Barbour Accessories. Barbour Olive Green Waxed Harbour Tote Bag



    Or are there any other suggestions from anyone? I'm looking to spend, essentially, a max of around 150. My fave is the WANT, followed by the Barbour. The Fred Perry one is just a cheaper option.

    The Want one is the nicest. The Barbour one is pretty cool - a bit more manly than the Want. The Perry one is awful - it looks like something an old man would use to do his shopping with in Tescos.

    lol on the FP comments. I agree it really pales in comparison to the other two.


    Their borderfree checkout thing informs me it'd be 190 to get it from Barneys, a fiver or so less than the price on MrPorter. Means I may yet be able to get it cheaper from a UK site.

    Is it just me or is that WANT from Barneys a navy colour? I'd prefer navy to black. Given that elsewhere all I seem to find is black and tan, I'm unsure of myself.

    Oh it is navy. I can get it on WANT's own site for around 180 but no idea on the shipping on top of that. Search continues.

    I have seen it (the WANT) for around 170 somewhere and between them, Filson and Mismo are my favourite of the totes. Colour does vary the cost generally.

    Oh, quite a few out of stock, but still some good bargains to be had.

    What about these then lads? Do they compete with the navy above? I'm thinking about in terms of aesthetics as much as price.




    And a bigger one, about the same price as the navy one (Lindbergh):

    I like this one best. It's the most versatile for me anyway.

    Aye versatility is a big factor here, as is general shape/usage. People who have held/owned these totes would be great sources - @joshua ?


    Otherwise my wishlist items are:

    - Navy and/or printed plimsolls
    - New umbrella
    - New wallet. Sorely tempted by Burberry one on MrPorter sale.
