Crafted from a thick, rich oak hide, the wonderful creasiness and character that soft buffalo does so well is just developing.
A supple hide, there's no wear to the leather, corners are perfect and inking all excellent. Hardware is also very good with a small area of friction rubbing around the turnock hole on the Postmans Lock Plate and scratches to the sides of the turnlock end. The metal clad tips of the two front decorative straps display scratches as shown in the photos above.
The plait top handle is excellent, firm with all inking in place and the detachable strap very good with some general patina on close inspection.
A small dark mark to the LH side panel on the lower LH side, near the base and some light surface scuffs to the LH side of the base, the main reason this Lexy hasn't achieved a Very Good is the rain speckled patina to the lower front of the bag. As a very characterful hide, this patination will continue to blend with use, but has been reflected in the price.
A small irregularity on the middle of the base, just above the scuffs as shown in the photo, as present at the time of first purchase.
The interior is lined in entirely clean, chocolate Mulberry tree repeat fabric with a zipped pocket and leather trimmed slip section.
The top flap is lined in thick, soft chocolate suede.
