Any good tote bags with luggage slide over?

I'm looking for attractive tote bags that slide over pull out hands of carry on luggage. I thought Tumi had an Alpha one, but I haven't been able to find it. I know Briggs & Riley makes them too, but they are so boring.

Any advice for a stylish bag with the function of the slide-on pouch?

I've been looking for a similar bag. I came across a couple that were fairly cute but I'm not sure if you're male or female so maybe not stylish to you! The first two are meant as laptop bags but obviously doesn't matter what you put in it. They have the zipper to open the bottom to slide over the handle or keep it closed to use as a pocket, I think.

Then I came across these very beautiful, very expensive leather bags that have the strap on the back:

I know that Samsonite makes a few bags that have the strap but they're not really tote bag style.

I am not sure what size you wanted. I think this one by EC in the red is nice.

I also like this one http://www.eaglecreek.com/bags_lugga...Emerson-60212/

One More thing

I have an EC tote that is several years old and I recently used it with B&R -- it was a tight fit over the handles so you might want to look at how far apart the handles are that you need to slip something over -- the size is not a standard size from manufacturer to manufacturer.

How about this one? I have taken it all over in the US as well as Europe and love it.

In search of the perfect travel tote, I just ordered Baggallini A La Carte, which is large but still doable for everyday use. It has the double zipper pocket that can convert to a sleeve over the roller bag handle, it has three roomy open pockets on the front, and important to me, it has rolled leather loop handles with a long drop. Have not ever liked the feel of the Baggallini fabric, but maybe it can work.

I also bought from Travelsmith the Sondra Roberts Carried Away bag, which is a good looking and much larger nylon tote similar in style to a Longchamp, except it has two good zip pockets on the front. The long rolled leather loop handles hook perfectly over the roller bag handle for the bag to ride on the front as if using an add-a-nag strap or J hook. It will fold flat, weighs very little, and looks stylish with saddle leather handles and trim contrasring with the nylon.

The Ellington Amelia I do not like because it has ordinary flat fabric straps and so many clever pockets and features, it is just too geeky.
