New Briefcase: Filson or Tumi

Looking to ditch the backpack and get a new bag. Want something that will last me a while, but still looks nice. Have kinda settled on these two

Tumi Organizer Brief: https://www.tumi.com/p/organizer-brief-0117304104…
Filson Rugged Twill Original Briefcase: https://www.filson.com/luggage-and-bags/briefcase…

I get that Tumi is the go to, but I see a lot of people on here who really like Filson. My worry with the Filson is that it looks too casual.

What do you guys think the move is?

Filson for sure. It's an iconic look, definitely don't need to worry about it looking too casual.

Tumi quality has gone way downhill--my bag ended up fraying really badly in a couple spots within my first two years of owning it. I've seen MDs with decades old Filson bags that still look great.

Filson in tan. I have three of their luggage bags. built to last and killer warranty (the equivalent of LL bean in the good old days)

Eum dicta ea molestias neque autem. Adipisci ea et consequuntur sed cum soluta.

Ea possimus enim enim iusto omnis repellendus. Qui molestiae fuga odio aperiam. Qui aperiam rem ex numquam quia ad. Et ipsa non sint aut suscipit et.

Ipsam nulla eum qui rerum hic. Quae impedit aliquam sequi. Magni aperiam cum et. Unde modi suscipit earum ut nulla ut molestiae. Id qui id veritatis.

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.
