The Cambridge Satchel Company

By Gavin Jewkes, 20 February 2014

Over the past few years, the Cambridge Satchel Company has made a name for itself as the go-to brand for men in search of a viable alternative to a backpack.

And for good reason; its classic 14-inch satchel is sizeable enough to swallow up your keys, wallet, phone, laptop, and a change of clothes without breaking a sweat. The fact that they look pretty smart is a bonus, too, adding a timeless scholastic charm to your outfit.

Nowadays, however, Cambridge is spreading its leather-clad wings and developing its designs to appeal to a wider market. That's right, for people who want to distribute the weight of their swag across two shoulders, not just one, it's devised a compact, adjustable double strap option. This comes in a variety of cool colours and, arguably, looks even better than the original.

Beautifully played, Cambridge.
