An amazingly tactile hide.....though its supple, the leather is thick and pliable so its a bag that will mould to your side in use, yet still currently stand up when empty with a gentle slouch. Softening further with use, it will eventually become deliciously slouchy and unstructured.
Colour consistent with lots of character and natural creases, the top flap is fabulously floppy and textured, (a feature of the Bayswater in Soft Matte) with the commonly seen surface impressions from the handle bases.
Should straps are well shaped, will naturally fall down when not held and display slight darkening to the underside of the top curves. Minor wear to the inking (edge sealent) to the flap's inlets and the inner base triangle sides, as shown.
No wear to the corners or curves, just the natural darkening in tone to the piping.
One, barely there fingernail scratch to the front, lower LH of the bag and 5mm dot of stray inking to the RH side of the base's upper seam, as present from the time of construction, (see zoomed photo above).
The Postmans Lock Plate is excellent with only hairline polish scratches, too miniscule to even capture on camera. There is minor finish loss to the sides of the turnlock, (not visible to the naked eye) and gentle friction scratching between the two underside plate's perimeters.
Lined in clean, ruffled, dark chocolate suede with a zipped pocket and two slip sections.
