Silver leather tote

I'm looking for a silver leather bag that I can use as a general 'big bag', but also occasionally fit a laptop or use as an overnight bag.

I would like soft leather, not too shiny and I would like some sort of fastening on the top. I haven't managed to find the perfect one yet.

I like the leather of the ones like this John Lewis one but it no fastening.

On the other hand, there are bags like this one (which seem to come from China or Hong Kong) which have a zip top but look a bit too stiff and 'perfect'.

I've looked on Etsy and there are quite a few which look quite good but not quite right either, and quite often seem to come from Israel, so it's rather a commitment if I'm not quite sure.

Can anyone find my perfect bag? I have about £80 to spend.

No one fancy a challenge?

The first picture is the one I like but has no fastening and the second is the sort of bag that just looks a but stiff.

Can anyone come up with anything? ( Trying not to sound needy)

How about this?


It does seem to have a fastening, though hard to see what type

Hmm, that looks like a possibility. Thanks Curls.

I guess it's a magnetic fastening. I wonder if they would know if I called a store.

I had thought of one that was wider than it is tall but I'm sure I could get over that. Shame they don't have a photo of someone holding it to get a sense of scale.

With free delivery and returns, it may be worth ordering to see.

Boden had one last autumn, might be worth waiting a week or two and having another look round as I think they are sometimes an Autumn thing, iyswim.

A Boden one would be £££, though, wouldn't it?

Only pleather, but Zara is selling a silver tote at £30, with a magnetic closure.

Thanks, Lemon but I'd really like leather if possible. (No idea why, now I come to think of it, but I would)

CurlsLDN The Oliver Bonas bag arrived and it's great. It's really soft leather and, although quite shiny, I think it'll wear really nicely. Thanks for the suggestion.

Now to decide what to do with the 50p leftover...
