London Fog is my new favorite for handbags. I've even turned my mom onto them and she's been stocking up like crazy. I would recommend these to friends and co-workers. The tote bags are a great size for carrying stuff to work, including my walking shoes. I get compliments everywhere I go. A must buy brand!
I did realize that this was faux leather, but the size looked big enough to carry sundries on a car trip. The first time I lifted it out of the card, the handle came off in my hand. the little metal (?) piece broke off completely. The bag was definitely not overstuffed and the heaviest item was my small Kindle. Since i had paid for this in part by using Overstock rewards, it wasn't a huge monetary loss, but still!
This is a lovely, well-made bag, but it's larger than I thought. As a petite woman I realize that I need something more proportional to my body size. If you need a large bag, this one looks very stylish and seems to be made with sturdy materials.
This purse is made from board like leather, nice to look at from the outside, but quickly loses its appeal when you begin to carry it and realize it is nothing more than a stiff, large,cavernous,piece of leather with handles. If you need a saddle bag for a Harley, you need this tote bag. It could stand the test of any cross country trip. I am 100% dissatisfied because it is not at all comfortable to carry & anything put inside is lost because of the large open space. This product is my worst nightmare from shopping online. I should have paid more attention to reviews from others instead of going by the reputation of the manufacturer. Please don't waste YOUR money as I did MINE.
I love this bag. I have received multiple compliments. Despite it being faux leather, I had a woman in an elevator tell that my "leather" purse was obviously well made and would last a long time! It's a deep purse. I wish it was slightly longer so that I could fit a Manila folder long ways.
I bought this for my girlfriend, excited by the price and appealing photo. The bag arrived without the same classy patina as the photo, and had cheap, imperfect stitching and black edges. I also didn't realize it wasn't real leather when I bought it, but let my girlfriend see it anyways to make sure I wasn't being picky for the price. She immediately pointed out the shoddy craftsmanship and recommended sending it back. All thumbs down for this item, and I won't try London Fog again after the experience, either. Overstock was helpful and courteous with the return.
My mistake in ordering this bag was reading the reviews, and not enough time on the actual description. This bag IS NOT LEATHER! You will not be fooling anyone. I realized something was wrong the minute I opened the box. Probably one of the better imitation leathers that I have seen, but costs more than most fake bags, so there's your trade off. For just a little more I will hold out for something that will have character when it get's dinged and not be in the trash in the next year. Other than that, a nice design, so if high quality materials are not an issue for you, order away.
If you're used to a good quality bag- you will be disappointed with this one. It smelled when it came out of the box and was very stiff. Also, had many scrathes which even if you wanted to buff out- you couldn't since it's fake leather. Note, for a fake leather bag- $76 is expensive. On a good note- it was very east to return.
The bag itself is well made but the lining in the outer side pocket is poorly sewn. Perhaps the reason for the good price. Haven't even had the bag a month and already one of the side pockets lining has split at the seam. Seems very little fabric was there and sewn literally on the edge. Too tired and busy to return it. Now I have a black hole in the bottom of my bag .

I've never had a purse this big before, but I think I might be hooked. It's made of very good quality materials (I was surprised to find a tag that stated it wasn't real leather) and the pockets are perfect. I did expect it to be a darker color (it seems lighter than in the picture), but I still like it. It will be perfect for work and for a more casual yet sophisticated look. If you want a slightly larger purse, this is it!

This is a good quality bag. The leather is a little stiffer than I thought it would be, but it stands well which is what I wanted. My former tote bag was a DB and the leather was so soft it was difficuly to find things, not with this one! Very pleased with quality and pricing.
