I'm not sure if this timing is good or not, but my ebay special I bought 6 years ago finally died last week and I need a new bag. I've looked at the mithchel in the past with admiration. I'm also very interested in a M&W traveller. Really I just want a classic bag made with horween leather that will last, and will carry all of my stuff. That probably is indeed the mitchell, but that's a big pill to swallow.
