Hello. I am after a non branded lovely leather black tote/shopper. I'd like it to be quite large in size, smart (ish) without being structured. I saw this and thought hmmmmm. I'd love some opinions please:

I personally don't like the "croc" effect on the bag. I think it would look more classic if it were plain. But it ticks all your other boxes and is reduced!

I like everything bar the texture would prefer something smooth

I have something similar from john Lewis. Have you Looked there?

It's nice, but I see it's unlined. I bought an unlined leather bag and everything gets covered in little tiny bits of leather - very annoying.

I think it's horrible. Badly proportioned and very dull.

Thank you everyone for your comments. I appreciate them.

That's interesting that you say it's badly proportioned Doesnt. I really like the size of tis bag, the fact that it's not too rectangular and very obviously East-West or North-South.

More importantly, I like the fact that it's got a hand handle that can go over the shoulder but it also has a long strap to go across the body.

I have looked in John Lewis but haven't seen anything suitable at all. I have been after a bag like this for ages, you know, a good quality understated classic. No logos, no bling, just great design and great quality leather.

is this too small?

MayIcarryYourSchoolBooks Sun 28-Dec-14 11:11:31

Gobblin hi thanks, I don't dislike that bag at all, it just isn't what I'm after. I can't explain why. I wish I could so I could find my bag once and for all!

MayIcarryYourSchoolBooks Sun 28-Dec-14 11:15:27

I guess this bag is very near what I want, except for the logo and of course the price!!

It's just OK - it's a large black bag.

It just looks wrong to me and I'm not entirely sure why. The short strap is a little too short for the size of the bag I think. I'm not sure it's the squareness of the bag alone. Something about it bugs me! grin

I really like it.

Shopgirl1 Sun 28-Dec-14 12:58:26

I like that Plumo bag. The fact it's not lined is the only thing I don't like about it.

hopefulpuffin Sun 28-Dec-14 13:06:21

Have you looked at Lodis?

kissmasfairy Sun 28-Dec-14 13:12:57

I like it. I especially like the croc finish. In fact I really like it and am now cross I can't afford it!

Gingerbreadlattelover Sun 28-Dec-14 13:16:20

I like it too.

Bellerina2 Sun 28-Dec-14 13:22:13

If I was paying £95 for a bag I would expect it to be lined. Also what is a raw finish?

MayIcarryYourSchoolBooks Sun 28-Dec-14 20:19:54

What do you think of this one? (notice the budget has gone up by 100% grin)

DoesntLeftoverTurkeySoupDragOn Sun 28-Dec-14 20:26:23

Infinitely nicer IMO smile

polyhymnia Sun 28-Dec-14 21:09:27

Yes, much nicer.

PrimroseEverdeen Sun 28-Dec-14 21:21:01

I really like it!

MayIcarryYourSchoolBooks Sun 28-Dec-14 22:22:03

I like it too but the fabric lining really puts me off. It looks so twee.

What do you think of this one?

DoesntLeftoverTurkeySoupDragOn Mon 29-Dec-14 12:13:58

Nicer than the first but I preferred the less rigid look of the last one.

I think I know what I found wrong with the first one now - it was the proportion of the handle to the bag.
