The Material Boy #214
Alexander McQueen Tan Leather Tote
I have seen this Alexander Mcqueen Tan Leather Tote Bag in person during my London holiday last Oct. And it left a good impression on me for the design and versatility this bag. Absolutely fabulous for match up with winter coats, leather jackets and jeans. The light weight of the bag also amazes me since I was expecting the bag to weight a tonne with it's full leather construction. It was actually almost effortless to carry! There could be so many good things I can say about this bag.
However, the reason why I did not get it then was becos I already had in mind the YSL Men's Besace Bag and the full price of £722.00 was too pricey for me.
Yesterday, I went online again to check out the further reductions offered on www.matchesfashion.com, I was duly suprised! This bag, in brown, is now further marked down to just £388.00! (will be cheaper without UK VAT for international orders!) That is an incredible price for a full leather bag of this quality! Remarkably rich tan leather, a bit aged on its glossy patina with matte brass buckle hardware that all adds up to a masculine and yet beautiful bag. Perfect in size, neither too bulky nor too small. This tote also has an exterior zip pocket for easy access to commonly used items and a buckled flap pocket for any extras. The sturdy construction means it can withstand your laptop's weight and you can bring it everywhere.
I would grab this bag in a heartbeat if I had not been buying too many bags recently. Perhaps some of you will be interested in another 'gem' of online shopping and further sales:-P I love to share good shopping bargains.
Comes in a deep green colour as well, but that is still retailing at a lesser discounted price of £488.00. I wonder why...isn't the brown one more classic in colour?
