The overlaid suede leather is all in a very good condition throughout. A very soft and slouchy hide, its given some structure by the rolled patent piping which is also in a very good condition. No wear, no rubs, nicks, crinkles or scratches its a bag that will naturally 'puddle' when empty but retains a nice shape when in use.
Inking is excellent throughout, even at flexing points and the plait feature top handle is all perfect.
A well loved bag, there is some friction dulling beneath the lock plates where they rub together and both the postmans lock and the turnlock show surface scratches.
One base corner shows an extremely light surface scuff but the main point to note is the scratching to the metalware on the ends of the front straps, the D rings at the side of the bag and some feather crackling on the detachable, long shoulder strap, (see Photo Gallery below).
Extremely well camoflagued by the finishes reflective nature, the strap is slightly softened with use but in no way affects the use of the bag.
The interior is fully lined in clean black Mulberry silk repeat fabric with a side zipped security pocket.
A much nicer bag in the flesh than a listing of its faults makes it sound.
