Oh to be a student again, walloping my first loan installment on one of these Master Piece bags as I await the approval of last terms hardship loan application. Ah the heady days of New Labour and frivolous spending!
Ok so I’m not a student anymore, but at least nowadays my backpack contains cool nonsense like a bottle of Murdock beard oil, Steve Vogel’s hardback ‘Contemporary Menswear – A global guide to independent men’s fashion’, and an Ordnance Survey map of upper Teesdale, Put that in your pint of diesel or whatever you spotty enthusiastic little shits are currently throwing down your gullets. What have you got in your bag eh? Re-hashed overpriced vintage tat from Urban Outfitters? An iPhone full of hopes and dreams? A pencil case packed full of youthful exuberance? A laptop sleeve of unwavering spirit?
… Christ I wish I was a student again!
