I remember as a kid, shopping for a backpack to wear back to school each fall. Somehow, even after being out of school, I still long to splurge on that new piece for my wardrobe every September. Now instead of a multi-purpose Jansport backpack to lug around books, I usually opt for a supple leather satchel or a new laptop bag. Check out these finds — all at 50% off!
The Kenneth Cole Reaction 3 1/2" Leather Vertical Messenger Bag (was $360, now $179.99 @ Macy's) is made of top quality, full grain leather, and features a stylish, sleek look that is as fashionable as it is professional. Fill up the roomy cargo space with all your files, folders and business essentials for a practical way to work and play.
Go sassy and sophisticated with this Crosstown Leather Satchel by The Sak(was $139, now $62 @ eBags). The crisp cream and black combo has lady-like charm without looking fussy. It's the perfect work to evening bag at a price that can't be beat.
There are many a beautiful bag on sale at Brook's Brothers, but this one particularly struck me. The Herringbone Satchel (was $798, now $399) is petite, polished and perfect for fall with its structured silhouette and elegant '40s vibe.
