Thick glossy and robust hide with a gloriously creasy reverse, its been used and loved but at first glance looks excellent.
No immediate wear, corners are slightly lightened and a little dry but not rubbed and the webbed cross body strap is superb with only the usual light sit mark where the buckle has been set.
Hardware is similarly excellent, without scratching dulling or tarnish, excepting the zip header which has darkened. The leather stitched zip pull shows some little wear and inking loss to the side.
The top zip runs freely and smoothly and the interior and underside of the top flap are clean, ruffled suede just displaying general use, (no marks or stains).
The reason for the * rating is two-fold. Firstly, there is a small pin-prick like hole on the top RH side of the top flap. Looks huge in the close up photos but its teeny! The previous owner has no idea how this occured but you'd never see it unless you were inspecting extremely closely.
The other point to note is a rather masculine 'aftershave' like aroma to the bag. Not unpleasant but noticable and priced to reflect these issues.
