Crafted from a very lovely, rich and glossy caramel toned hide with a beautiful grain. Its thick enough to feel robust but soft enough to be wonderfully slouchy.
Some vague patina markings to the front LH side and also across the base, these will continue to blend with age and use.
All stitching and inking is fully intact with just a little stray inking smudge to the LH strap belt loop, (present from purchase).
Corners show light wear and slight darkening.
A small, light pen catch beneath the top flap on the RH side and a parallel line crease / scratch to the reverse of the bag (see Photo Gallery below), these are much less noticable to the naked eye than the close up photos make them appear.
The main reason for the * rating is the scratching and loss of finish to the metal tipped strap ends. The rest of the hardware is very good, with some light friction rubbing between the lock plates, round the turnlock hole and on the edges of the turnlock end.
The plait feature top handle is excellent. Firm with all inking in place and the detachable shoulder strap is similarly good with just a light sit impression where the buckle has been set.
The interior lining is generally clean, with a dark smudge just below the Mulberry disc and a few vague marks to the base lining, as shown.
