In all fairness, not all of us who use briefcases on campus are wannabe Gordon Gecko, Jim Cramer-watching, ill-fitting suit wearing wannabe cretins. A briefcase is a practical implement for carrying a small quantity of books. For those who don't want a briefcase, anything leather is good. If one likes backpacks, fine. But why stick to the shitty nylon one you bought at Target during senior year? Get a leather one. A trendier person probably could rock a time-worn but sturdy portfolio from ebay. I look at my briefcase as upgrading to leather goods rather than affecting the appearance of a businessman.
