The leather is in a lovely condition throughout. Glossy, grainy and robust without noticable wear, marks or scratches. Gorgeously creasy with natural striations and nicely softened, this is a leather that will continue to grow even more beautiful as it ages.
Corners are very good, stitching strong and just a smattering of surface impressions on the base from being placed down.
Hardware very good with the usual scratching to the base feet and a little friction rubbing around the turnlock hole.
The rolled leather shoulder straps are well shaped, but soft and comfy to carry and though handle bases are softened, all inking (edge sealent) is intact.
A little dryness to the inking on the sides shoulder straps and around the top aperture of the bag but no loss or cracking.
The interior is clean, (the pile brushed one way makes it look like a stain in the photo, but its merely a trick of the light!)
Some minor age related discolouration to the suede of the interior top flap as is often seen with this hide.
