As the title says, this bag comes so close, but the details leave me wondering if I made the right choice or if it's more cheaply constructed than it first appears. The leather is high-quality and has no obvious blemishes; color on the website appears accurate compared to the bag I received. The stitching is tidy and overall construction quality appears good. However, the hardware that appears to be brass is not -- it's some other cheap metal that is painted to appear like brass. It wouldn't be obvious except that on several surfaces the paint already has worn to show the base metal, and is actually peeling off of the straps. This is it's condition AT ARRIVAL -- I have just pulled it out of the packaging -- so I suspect that this is only going to get worse. This is a huge disappointment in a fairly expensive bag and it can only hope the rest of the messenger bag fares better with use.
This was a gift for the music minister at our church. When I opened it, I was very impressed by the color, the style,, the leather. It is a beautiful bag. When he received it, he had the same reaction. One choir member, after checking it out, said he would have it until he was 99. It is beautifully made. I compared prices at other sites. This was the best one! Thanks for a great product!
I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend for Christmas! As I get too excited around the holidays to wait until Christmas to give it to him, I made him open it early! He absolutely loves it! Amazing quality and super fast shipping! Would definitely recommend this product to everyone!
