    I used the classic satchel (in blue leather) almost daily, when commuting across London to work, for more than 5 years, and it remains a very fine bag. MacKenzie made a slight adaption to the design, on request, by including a handle, as well as a shoulder strap. There are a lot of satchels on the market these days, but the quality of leather and craftsmanship of this product, means that it remains, in my view, ‘the outstanding buy’. (You will also not encounter a nicer group of people to deal with than the staff at MacKenzie).
