Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Clayton Satchel
Leather color wears off on 4 bottom corners
I bought the similar bag "Kingston" in baby pink and loved it so I got this Clayton in the bone. Because the pink color on the 4 bottom corners of the Kingston has worn off after 8 months of carrying it, I inspected the corners of the Clayton bag to see if they would also be subject to premature wear, sure enough they are. Sure both bags have protective feet but the natural easing of the leather to a "slouch" makes the 4 corners sit on and rub against surfaces - thus wearing away of the color. I am not hard on my bags and the pink one continues to be my favorite of all my D&B bags but since I am trying to figure out a way to restore the pink color to the corners and put something protective on it, I decided to return this bag. PLEASE D&B this issue with your leathers in your designs as I have 2 older pebble leather bags I purchased that also have the wearing away of the color on corners. Perhaps consider a special applied protector. I love D&B and own several and this is my only complaint.
Love my Dooney's. So does everyone else. Friends have asked me to put them in my will for them (smile).

Love this bag! Size is perfect, the leather is perfect, the color is perfect! Very happy with Dooney.
1st Dooney&Bourke purchase
I admired this bag for years but could never afford it so when it came on easy pay because they were not going to bring it back it was my last shot so I didn't care if I got into trouble you ladies know what I mean the toss was between brown or black I got the black it is stunning there is nothing better than a great leather handbag wish I could afford another I stayed away because of the weight of Dooney&Bourke without anything inside but I love this one and I purchased 3 others all at the same time but yet to carry them because this one is so me
I have several DOONEYS , however , my clayton satchel in the natural is now my favorite. I so love this bag . It is worth every penny I plan to order another one in the crimson soon. The bag is so well put together. I have received so many compliments. I am truly a happier camper! THANKS DOONEY!
I Love It
I know the bag was a return because it didn't come in plastic but the blue D/B bag. I still love the bag and the color baby pink is beautiful

I always wanted the Clayton Satchel but order the Kingston (in the same oyster color) first....When the Clayton went on sale, easy pay AND in the oyster color I had to order it...I carry it when traveling or when I need a purse + a briefcase.
Luv the Kingston for during those times when I want a roomy medium size bag. To make my collection complete I desire the style/color/ and leather in a small or even mini size bag.
Gold Piece popped off
Love this bag also have it in chestnut, ordered it in this color bone, and carried it only ONE WEEK and the gold screw on the side flap next to zipper popped off and is gone. This is the first time this ever happened and I have over 20 DB bags. Sorry going back. Please make sure this doesn't happen again, worries me. I do love DB bags but this is unexceptable. This bags are too expensive for this to be happening. I am not rough on my bags, they are all in pristine condition and I have had some for 10 years.
Beautiful buy too heavy for me
This really is a beautiful, top quality bag. The only reason I returned it is because it is just too heavy for me. I'm getting older now, and I do have some back issues so I was just not comfortable with the weight. I am disappointed because I really do love the look of this bag, but I have to be realistic and don't want to add to my back problems.
This is the most beautiful dooney I own!! The leather is so soft and supple. I own the natural, and after a month it has a beautiful patina to it. It's a bag that makes you feel like a million bucks!! Definitely worth every penny!
I own several D&B bags and by far this one is my favorite. Not only is it beautiful it has amazing space and compartments to keep a busy woman organized, fashionably. I have had this bag for 2 weeks and have received more compliments on it than some of my other designer bags that I have paid a lot more for.
This bag is beautiful!!! The florentine leather is wonderful & the natural color is rich looking. I have had the most compliments on this handbag & so glad I made the purchase.
