The purse is in good condition. It has held up very . There is not much I can really say at this time until the end of year. However, it is roomy but overpaying it can be too much on the shoulders. The color is nice .it is not fading or anything due to rainy weather. I would like to have a brown or black one as well. These purses are so hard to find at a reasonable price. Mostly everyone that sees me with it likes it.
It is a very attractive and beautiful leather bag that seems to be of good quality. The only problem is that it is way too big to use for an average day as a purse of bag. It is more the size of a tote bag. Yes, I read the it said oversized, but it wasn't until I saw it that I realized it was way too big. I love the pockets on each side, which comes in handy to place a phone, etc. It would be wonderful if the company could make a slightly smaller version of it.
I love this bag. I can put my lunch cooler, handbag, umbrella and more in the main compartment, my metro pass and water in the outside pockets, and lots of smaller zipper pockets inside for safe keeping my keys etc. So many women friends have commented on how nice the bag looks and the perfect size. The rusty color goes well with everything and the leather is soft but substantial. I use it daily for all my trips to work, shopping...I LOVE IT!
However, I ordered a Chestnut (which is brown) hobo bag and received an orange one by mistake. I have chatted and requested that they replace the bag with the correct one. The bag is a nice quality leather bag; however, receiving the wrong color does dampen my enthusiasm a bit!
This is a nice, good quality bag for the price. The size is more briefcase-like than handbag...good for travel or a business meeting but I wouldn't use it day to day as it's just gigantic. Could perhaps as a diaper bag if I was still in that stage. The color is more orange than the picture shows...but it's still pretty. The leather looks and feels like good quality. The big issue for me was the hardware. It's bright gold, a bit gaudy/flashy for my taste. I'm sending it back...If not for the hardware I'd have given it 5 stars.
I was hesitant to order this bag based on the mixed reviews, but I'm so glad I finally ordered it. I love it. I was afraid the bag would be too big, but after receiving the bag, it's a nice size, not too big, not too small. The leather is good quality and the workmanship on the bag is superb. The color is definitely a burnt sienna, not quite chestnut, but it's still a nice color for Fall. I anticipate that I will use this bag for many years to come.
This bag is top quality, roomy and the color is great! I have received many compliments. The more I use it, the more I love it. The quality of craftsmanship is excellent. I expect this bag to look great for a very long time and I am not easy on purses!
