Sharing is caring!

I’ve been meaning to buy a new bag after I realized I never owned a decent one, ahehehe. Anyways, my plan was to buy a couple of Cambridge Satchels in fluo orange and yellow. But when I tried ordering, I learned there is a 3 month waiting list. The company itself is swamped with orders from all over the world. It’s not surprising as it is today’s “It” bag.  So now, I can’t get my hands on one, which is a pity since the craftsmanship of CS is remarkable (I bought my sister one)

I do have a thing for leather goods and I saw a few bags that’s right up my alley at Our Tribe’s boutique. The one below, they have it in fire engine red and it’s crazy sexy! It costs 5K plus, slightly cheaper than CS.

I was set on buying one next payday but I recently discovered SOS (School of Satchel). As you can see, their satchels look a lot like CS’. In fact, you might not even spot the difference at first glance. 100% leather and 100% Philippine made. This one’s in Oxblood:

Gorgeous no? Best of all, the medium size, roughly 13″, costs only about 4K, which is much cheaper than CS and Our Tribe’s bag.

Dammit. Now I don’t know which one to get.

Update: SOS for the win! I just placed an order. First time I ordered anything online, I’m so freakin’ excited! Woot!
