I love this leather rucksack/satchel/bag thing, it's just worn in enough to feel like mine.
But the other week, the buckles broke. In days of yore, that would be an excuse to get a new one, but in the new 'not buying stuff' regime, I took it to a traditonal cobblers and got new buckles fixed.
For just over a tenner.
Not only is nice to keep it now it's reached a great level of patina, it feels more mine than ever.
