"It's where I keep all my things. Get a lot of compliments on this. Plus it's not a purse, it's called a satchel. Indiana Jones wears one." --- Zach Galifianakis' eternally funny line from the Hangover is what I remember when I see satchels around the campus. Well, of course, this is one sensible alternative if wearing a backpack would just ruin the entire look for you. Satchels are originally meant for the English schoolboy. A bag where he could place all his books. Now they have become stylish bags with more purpose than just that.
