Standard issue bag for a few years now, though it's so worn out I am considering buying one now. Have the same wrecked AEs I bought on my first day, but too lazy to replace.

I'm not that fashionable, but there was no way on earth I'd carry around the standard issue bags that come with the laptop. Those things are hideous - and a nightmare to find yours at socials if everyone's looks so similar
