I'm planning on getting a Cambridge satchel - I am changing career and need a briefcase type bag. I'm really chuffed to have cracked it and got a job in my new career, so the bag is a sort of present to myself. I originally trained in Cambridge- which is why I want a Cambridge one rather than any of the others.
So, my question is- is having your initials embossed on it naff? I can't decide! And I'm going to buy it tomorrow.
Yes, the embossing is subtle and, if you have it in the centre of the front flap, sits under your arm most of the time. I have used mine every day for work for years - it still looks great and is often complimented.
Thanks! I had almost given up on finding a job (after spending £££ and years re-training) and then out of the blue, the perfect job came up! In the perfect location. So, It's very deserving of a beautiful bag I think.
Bit awkward as I was so sure I would never actually make it, I took a new job in my old career a week before I saw this one. Funny how these things turn out...!
