Leather bags come in all types of leather, but there are different quality leather bags. Just because it says leather, doesn’t mean that the grain is good or that it will age gracefully.
Top quality leather bags are usually light, supple to the touch and get better looking with wear and tear. Some too, are ageless and can be worn for years and will never go out of style if that is what you are looking for in a good bag. It’s better to have a couple of good bags you treasure than many, which, at the end of the season must be ditched because the quality was not that great.
A good, top quality leather bag may be a bit pricey, but the investment is worth it.
I have my own favorite brands and although I don’t have many, I do treasure them and every time I use them, just the touch makes me feel special. It doesn’t even have to be a catchy fancy brand, it may be a hidden treasure brand that only the people in the know have caught on to.
My top brand on my list is IL Bissonte, Italian leather goods available in stores in New York, LA and online. Not only is the leather to die for, the customer service is amazing. Order online and if you are not happy you send it back easily while given the best customer service treatment. You actually feel you are interacting with real people who care.
The bags are timeless for both men and women. Check my picks out! These are my favorite! They make amazing gifts all year round.
