A thick yet still pliable hide, as its unused it will still stand when empty (see photo above), but as a leather that will soften and relax with use, it develops to become wonderfully slouchy and unstructured.
Protective film in place on the front of the Postmans Lock Plate and all buckles, film was not present on the underside of the lockplates or front two, metal-clad, satchel strap ends when received from Mulberry, so these display the very lightest hairline scratches.
Stored with the shoulder strap attached to the D rings, these display the lightest contact scratches.
A small, natural and very shallow dimple to the hide on the upper LH side of the top flap and a barely visible, light, pale mark to the RH side panel's horizontal 'cinch' strap that attaches to the push-through staff, see photos above.
All inking, (edge sealent), stitching, strap and handle are perfect.
The reason for the * rating is due to the very vaguest glue discoloration which has only developed during storage. Produced in late 2014 / early 2015, at the time of construction there has been some stray adhesive in contact with the hide on the front, upper RH side of the bag, near the top aperture, which appears as an extremely vague, yellowish diagonal streak, (location indicated in the Quad picture and close up beside it). This would have been wiped away at the time and not visible, but the residue has discoloured with time. An almost imperceptible yellow shadow to the lower RH side of the RH side panel, near the base curve and similarly on the LH side, these are so incredibly vague and hard to see, you'd never notice them unless expressly pointed out and completely invisible in use. The photos above accurately represent how these three areas look to the naked eye.
Lined in thick, beige linen cotton with leather trimmed slip pocket and side zipped section. The interior flap is lined in a soft, beige suede.
