M&S had a nice mid size leather msgr bag last time I popped in, good quality, also weekend bag at reasonable rates.

If you're going to spend enough for Vis then you could defiitely afford Mulberry.
Outlet in Bicester has some gorgeous satchels and messengers for £200-270, last you for ever and only loook better with age.

Theres a really nice one on Mulberry but its 500 !!! Anf if I were to spend that much it would have to be something better than nice . I keep trying to persuade the other half to go to Bicester so maybe a trip could be called for sometime soon

Anyone know the size of the hare raf x eastpak ripoff's. Are they as big as the originals?

Messenger bags of those size (especially the full size e-cat) are pointless unless you're a cyclist. Those bags are meant to be worn laid horizontally on your back, especially when you're carrying heavy stuff. Doesn't work other wise.

Nice one, I read yesterday and it reminded me I wanted that bag. I like the layout and there are some good articles, been favourited.

you wont be able to dye those straps as i would highly doubt they are cotton so they wont take dye,to be honest that hare one is a better bet than the raf ones which are ok,but pretty useless function wise,unless you got money to blow on something that will be outdated by end of the summer i wouldnt even humor buying one.

Yeah, I'd never pay the money for a raf one, but the hare is only about £40. Would fabric paints work or anything similar, if not I could always replace the straps with ones I could dye myself.

site looks good by the way rirawin, i forgot to mention. the bags feature was actually the first thing i read

Luke, just buy that one and keep it the colour it is. Looks fine like that.
I need to buy a new strap for my leather Gap messenger as it's all frayed around the brass part you attach it to. Where could I purchase a new strap?

to be honest fabric paint would look pretty shit and i think again wouldnt take to sythetic material,you could remove and reattatch your own straps but you would need a decent sewing machine to do it nicely/properly im not sure if its a specific type of stich on bags,all in all i think it would be a lot more hassel than its worth
