Anything that is going to be used by the potential student must be built for the part. The Fancy shoulder bag does have double stitched seams that make the joints extremely strong during the use. This does attract the attention of much more than the usual college crowd, and there are those folks who find a bit of college attire pleasing to use. It must be said of the material that it is strong enough to withstand the hardiest of pulls and the most abrasive of uses. The well finished outer fabric does make the shoulder bag attractive to look at but more importantly helps keep the exterior clean from dirt.
