There comes a time when you’ve just got to swallow your pride and say, “Okay, that is pretty epic.” 


Up until about 20 minutes ago, I had been somewhat of a The Cambridge Satchel Company hater. The bag that has become ubiquitous with middle class girls (on shopping trips to the city) really did nothing for me. It was a satchel. What’s so great about a satchel!?


That was until I saw their current men’s collection. Featuring luxurious leather and tartan detailing, the bag has shot straight to the top of my A/W 2013 wish list. I could quite easily fork out for all three colour options, but my top pick is definitely the brown leather with red and green tartan pocket. Quite simply, it’s timeless.


So, The Cambridge Satchel Company, what I’m trying to say is, “I’m sorry that I ever doubted you.”


The three satchels are priced at £140 (15″, £130 for 14″) and available online at ASOS here.
