to those of you who are in school (i'm in law school) do you carry these bags. i used a chapelier all through college and was totally satisfied. it was sturdy and i only changed bags once a year for the sake of a new colors. then i switched to longchamp in law school. i have a fushia one and i love it though i have to scrub it down every once in a while to keep it clean. i threw my chapeliers in the washer but am afraid to do so with the longchamp because of the leather. i am amazed that these bags are so sturdy. i can throw my laptop and 3 textbooks in them and there are no stress tears at all. plus i love the color options. even if others at my school have the bag, it is not MY color. are there any other enthusiasts out there.
