If you are ok with colors that aren't simply black - there are often sales where you can get 25% or more off on Tumi - Hautelook used to do a big annual sale, not sure where else does it or if that's around. I've found that their quality has held up even as prices continue to climb - unlike many brands.

Otherwise - I have heard good things about Nomatic. A good buddy of mine had one, looked nice and seemed very functional. Lots of pockets.

Unironically - Moleskine Leather Backpack. Have had one for five years and looks and feels brand new in spite of using it extensively with no aftercare at all. Looks good but does not get looks (in a good way). It goes well with suits, bizcas, casual/travel.

A backpack with a suit is dumb. Be better than this, son.

I don't care about how my backpack looks when I carry one. But if you're looking for something which looks good with work outfits (and btw I carry a backpack whenever I travel or go to work on a daily basis..), get a leather shoulder bag which carries a laptop or the likes.

We all hate being typical, but if it's popular it's probably at least decent.

Fjallraven (get the full-size not the mini, that won't fit a laptop) is pretty cool.  I also rather enjoy Herschel bags.

I don't use any tho. I'm a messenger bag guy.  I've got a Ogio from a co that doesn't exist any more as my DD.  I also have an ancient Geoffrey Beane leather thing and an AFL (Arena) branded pigskin bag from when they were a thing.

The only difference between Asset Management and Investment Research is assets. I generally see somebody I know on TV on Bloomberg/CNBC etc. once or twice a week. This sounds cool, until I remind myself that I see somebody I know on ESPN five days a week.
