The Globe and Mail

Leather backpacks combine reliable with refined

While we're not fans of rucksacks with business attire, nothing beats a handsome leather model for those weekend trips to the market. Rugged and reliable, they're significantly more refined than nylon numbers, yet casual enough for a round of errands. And they get only better with age, their supple skins acquiring a stylish patina.
