Men! Do not order my custom bags as gifts. Doing so deprives the recipient of the oportunity to choose their custom options.
I have one of your City Handbags bought many, many years ago
and, while your high-tech lining is still in perfect condition,
the leather itself has worn past the stage of "broken-in" and
one of the zipper tapes has ripped. Given how hard the bag has
been used, the fact it has lasted this long is a testament to
both the quality of the materials you use and the quality of
One of the things I've appreciated about your City handbag
is the need to open two zippers (the top zip and the central
zippered pocket) to get to some items. This is a great
feature when traveling and especially when the bag goes
through the x-ray scanner at busy airports. It means the bag
makes it just a little harder for a pickpocket to
unobstrusively pocket my wallet during the chaos of security.
As soon as my City Handbag arrived, I began using it and I absolutely love it. The last shop where I purchased a handmade leather bag, it was unlined and unstructured. But your handbag is well designed and crafted, and it looks so beautiful and tailored. It's exactly what I've been looking for and couldn't find anywhere else. Having the custom options like the long shoulder strap and the brass fittings gave me just what I wanted at a reasonable price.
Thank you so much for my beautiful handbag. I will be recommending you to my family and friends.
