I needed a daytime bag large enough to hold wallet, keys, eyeglasses, paperback and cell phone. I have a collection of nice leather bags but I hadn't been able to find a good medium size bag -- big enough to hold all of the above, but not so huge that it looks like I'm running away from home. This bag is an excellent size. It has good organization inside, with zip pockets inside and out. The strap is thoroughly adjustable from shoulder to crossbody style. It is very well made. The purchase price is fair. Okay, that's all the good points.
The bad points (for me) are that the color is listed as "black and white", but it's not white, it's more cream-colored. The fabric is a coated canvas which has a rigid, slightly tacky feel to it (this may vanish with use, I think). It has a dumb lime green PEACE medallion trim on the back side (not visible in Online Shoes's photos) which does nothing for me except bring back all the stupidity I survived in the 1970s.
I would ***love*** to have this style of bag, in this size (or a bit smaller, actually) in a nice quality leather in neutral colors. Price no object when you give me what I want. In the meantime this bag will work okay for me.
