Help Me Choose a new laptop bag please

After many years with an ugly but very functional old black nylon bag, it's time for me to trade up

Since this forum has helped me spend a lot of money over the years, thought I'd seek help here

My REQUIREMENTS:

1) For a 15 inch laptop
2) Shoulder strap available
3) A strap for hooking it onto a luggage handle
4) At least two sections--one for computer, one for accessories
5) Must look professional--no back pack styles

My PREFERENCES:
1) Prefer leather but willing to consider nylon if it looks great
2) I can handle color--red, navy, cognac but will go with black if it works
3) Would like to stay under $250
4) Prefer structured look rather than slouchy

Looking for professional tasteful stye

I just got a new one myself...

Surprisingly, it's Timbuk2, which I always associated with nylon messenger bags. They now have a lot of interesting laptop bags that are suitable for work.

I got mine in the Reserve color, which is a dark grey tweed with brown leather accents. This particular model doesn't have a luggage strap, but there was another tweed model in the store that did.

Thanks

You are right--they are more professional looking than I usually associate with the brand. I like being able to customize them on the website.
