I was recently told about a new line of [overpriced] messenger bags for men, created just in time for the down economy -- such as the one pictured here, which goes for $245. Although not exactly "Guerilla-esque" in price, my source thought I might appreciate the facts that they are made in NYC, and the logo is placed discreetly inside. So perhaps it is more than just a little Guerilla-esque, since I am a fan of the low-key logo and like the fact that they get all their fabrics and leathers from local garment district suppliers. So visit online and check 'em out yo' self: http://www.ernestalexander.com/
