It’s a poignant and emotional time of year. The dog days of summer didn’t even materialise. It’s a mix of excitement and terror at the thought of the holidays coming to an end, and The New Term beginning for young whipper snappers. And then for the rest of us who are too old for all that (and for whom life is sadly one long term time), there is a sense of real nostalgia… Clarks (sensible) shoe fitting machine, trips to Woolworths to buy a new pencil case with magnetic hidden compartments, Aertex PE shirts and envy at a friend’s beautifully sewn-in woven name labels (think mine were done with ballpoint). I only have to see a few dead leaves newly fallen on the pavement to get that whole thrill of the Back to School week. Of course it all wore off by week 2, the new shoes were already scuffed and you’d already lost half of your new and much cherished four-colour Bic biros but hey-ho! The fabric of life and all that.
So, whether you are getting ready for a super-smart return to the classroom, starting uni or traipsing back into the office – again(!) – next week, be the smartest kid on the block whatever your age with one of our old-school BEG leather satchels. For hiking or biking, our satchel collection will make sure you’re really kitted out in style. Made from beautifully soft, top grain tan leather that has been treated with a blend of oils and waxes to create vintage character and embossed with the BEG logo on the front, you’re sure to be top of the class from day 1! (Available in a range of sizes and styles. Prices from £45.00. See here for the full collection and details).
