The perfect satchel

Satchels are probably one of the most useful bag styles around, mainly because of the handy shape, smart look for work or school, and just for looking classy around town.

Now, I have found that coach have some of the best satchels around. I have some suggestions below;

I particularly like the vintage leather carry all (pictured right) which has 2 main compartments and is big enough for a laptop and A4 paper pads etc. It is perfect on many levels; looks, usefulness, practicality, and quality. This is no longer on the website, however there may be some used ones cropping up at a lower price tag then the $700+ original price.

The coach Lily (available in XL, L & M) is a popular choice, again for it's versatility and looks. There have been issues with it's weight, however I assume this is dependent upon the size and what bags you have previously been used to. It comes with the benefit of coming in different colours and leathers (such as ostrich).

A drawback of coach is that it is not available in the UK, apart from the odd bag in TK Maxx from many seasons ago. However the benefits are the lower prices then most designers, and the good quality leathers which with the right care, will last decades.
