    can't seem to find any that would work. I've scoured anywhere I could think of. Basically want a messenger that looks old and vintage that a 13" MBP could be stuffed into.

    Any help?

    Not bad. I found a few on Etsy that were the real deal. Stained, worn, freyed edges...that what I am looking for. From the link you sent I found German medic bags which look like they would work, they look new though

    Which merchant? Saddleback Leather or PorteenGear?

    I learned of PorteenGear on the camera forums for custom camera bags.

    Saddleback. When you click on the link you see at the bottom of the page:

    " Laptop cases have been discontinued but you might want to check out the thin briefcase. It works really well for a carrying your laptop, and smaller than our tough, full leather briefcases."

    But they look really awesome. I want one and I haven't even bought my macbook pro yet.

    oh but it seems the thin briefcase is the same thing???

    Coach has some nice leather items. I have a waterproof coach bag that has leather trim. My plan is to use it along with another sleeve to protect my future macbook pro.

    Thats a good one, especially the tobacco. I am looking for something canvas and vintage. A few on Etsy, though I don't know how well they will work as a messenger/laptop tote

    If you google Marc New York you'll find lots of good vintage choices both canvas and leather.
