“It’s not a man purse, its a satchel. Indiana Jones has one. ”

jwSMLYou never forget your first satchel. I should know, I remember my first satchel at age seven, given to me by my parents. This was of course an age when I was obsessed with Enid Blyton books and the William Brown series.
I even used to dress like William Brown for a while. Looking back this is slightly embarrassing or cute depending on how you look at it.

Anyway moving on, not only is the satchel an iconic example of British craftsmanship, but it also still invokes the classic images of the English schoolboy.

In the last few years the satchel has made a major comeback quickly becoming a timeless fashion accessory. To me its a must have piece, so get rid of your rucksacks and briefcases and invest in a good satchel and relive your childhood.
