Mark Cross might be best known (in the US, at least) for its women’s bags, but the brand has the kind of staid, classic aesthetic that easily appeals to men as well. With a traditional structure and rich, whiskey-colored leather, the Mark Cross Two-Pocket Messenger is professorial in the most dignified sense of the word.

It’s reached that point in the summer where I’m having a bit of fall nostalgia, and this bag reminds me of the leaves changing color in the historical part of my college’s campus. It’s been a few years since I was in school, as it’s probably been for most of you, but that doesn’t mean you (or your dude) won’t have use for a beautiful messenger with a slightly academic bent.

Pick up one of your own for $1,995 via Barneys.
