My brother just graduated from law school (a top 10 place) and has a job working for a Federal Judge starting next week. He would like to get some kind of bag so I thought I'd get him one as a graduation/birthday gift. I know he doesn't like backpacks and that's probably too informal. Although briefcases would probably be a safe choice and look decent, I think that sort of thing he finds way too formal for his style. He dresses really, really well and could probably model if he wanted to, but he's just not into briefcases.
What's a good intermediate type of thing for carrying around papers and such?
