Classic Leather Satchels & Bags – The Perfect Affordable University or College Accessory

scaramanga-leather-satchels-21 Despite the fact that your university years are the perfect opportunity to really find out who you are and embrace your true self, a lot rides on making a good first impression. Ideally this would involve arriving on a unicorn, but since that’s out of the question you’ll have to get by on your charm and wit.

Ladies: imagine you’re about to leave the house, having carefully packed your bag so everything fits in perfectly, and your boyfriend or husband says to you “Oh, can I just put my wallet, keys, phone and jumper in there?” – sound familiar? But what if your bag gets stolen/breaks under the weight of the additional load? You know full well the blame will be laid firmly at your feet when you’re unable to get back into your house having lost both sets of keys. This is just one of many reasons why it’s high time men need to take on their fair share of the carrying responsibility by getting their own bags.
