Even since it was stolen from Indiana Jones’ wardrobe and thrust into the forefront of fashionable minds, the satchel has been a must-have item for both men and women. Season after season we see revamped versions of this classic bag re-emerging on high-streets and runways everywhere. 2013 is no exception, so here are the must-have satchels you’ll need this autumn/winter.

That is a relaxed yet practical design of a satchel makes them perfect for everyday use. While black may be the winter colour choice for many, why not go for a rich brown leather satchel to really get that autumnal vibe? CalibreApparel has a great range of men’s and women’s casual satchels.
Ladies, this vintage leather satchel is a must-have for both this season and seasons to come. This classic bag oozes effortless sophistication. The minimalistic design, featuring a single buckle detail, teamed with the finest Italian leather makes this bag perfect for a spot of shopping or lunch out with the girls.
A far cry from Joey from Friends’ infamous ‘man bag’, this classic brown satchel is the perfect accessory for men. The distressed Italian leather and strong two buckle design exude a somewhat masculine vibe. With a large main compartment as well as additional zip pockets, this satchel has enough room to house all of your stuff, including your laptop. This bag would look great teamed with a parka, checked shirt and dark denim jeans for a chilled out daytime look.
