What do you think of this bag
i am starting a new job in a law firm(not a lawyer, hoping to one day become one). it is a very professional firm in NYC so i need a really nice leather bag. My old no-name-i-forgot-it-because-it-ripped-off laptop bag won't cut it in this office. There is a new briefcase / luggage store opened up in the next town over in Huntington long island. It is called j p marcellino bag company they make all their bags in house by hand and do custom work.
i went in the store the other day and seen the bag below link. Any opinions? is it too much (in terms of flash) for a non lawyer, - just some guy answering phones and shuffling papers for the real mucky mucks. i don't want people to think im trying to be "big time", but i also want to make a real professional
They call it the Honen 480
Honen 478 by The JP Marcellino Bag Co.
It is black English bridle leather with a really nice cast nickel lock and a back newspaper pocket.

I personally think it's alright as in not being too flashy though the big white nickel lock isn't really to my liking. I was in finance in NYC and from my observation, as long as your stuff isn't plastered all over with logos, people don't really pay attention. Do you really like JP Marcellino? Because I'm sure you can get a great quality briefcase for slightly less than $650.
