I still find much delight in the old Leitz 'Amateur Case'. (14820)

It's size is 22cm x 20cm x 10cm and it will hold an M camera with lens up 
to 50mm, the other compartment can take up to three lenses, though it 
normally advises two (stored back to back) it will accept a third below 
them if the coupled lenses are not too long. A lens brush has its own space 
and 4 rolls of film can be stored below the body, or 3 along with an 
accessory finder. I also manage to find space to carry a six pack of 
filters in a slim Kodachrome plastic case.
It looks old fashioned (being made out of hard stitched leather) and unlike 
what people think camera cases are these days.

IMO the answer is the Domke F803 in black, navy or sand:
+ the 2-Compartment Insert
