"As Is" B. Makowsky Leather Zip Top Pocket Satchel
Bought this purse "as is". I love it! Beautiful color, big enough but not too huge to carry on my shoulder. Gave 4 stars because there is a scratch in the leather which is not noticeable unless you are really looking hard for defects. My husband looked it over quite well and can normally find such things. But even when I told him that there was a definite defect, he couldn't see it. Hey, for a $100 off the original price, I will take it! I am hard on my purses and I could easily cause a scratch myself within the first few days of using a purse. Would rather that happen on an item I did not pay full price for.
Never Leave Home Without It
I have had this purse for at least a couple months now. I like the opening in the back of purse. I use it for my cell phone. It's a perfect it and very easy to get to the cell when you need it. I do the like the two from zippered pockets. The Zippers give it flair. However the zipper pulls are extremely heavy hardware. The tend to pull the zippers down when I don't want the pockets. So Ladies, plead pay attention so you don't loose anything.
I loved this purse when I saw it in the AS IS section. I didn't see anything wrong with it whn I got it. It actually looked more like a customer return than anything. The Chianti color is more purple than I thought it would be. Everyone asks me where I got it and the color. The only thing I'd say that gets in the way is the fringe on the zipper if you quick and not paying attention. The fringe can get the zipper caught easily and quickly.
Beautiful but. . .
The bag is perfect and love the softness of the bag but the color shown on the computer and the actual bag color (Chianti) is way off. I was expecting it to be the color shown in the picture but it is MUCH darker, almost a wine. Back it goes because I need a lighter color, what a shame.
Just not sure
I want to love this bag. The look and the feel are so luxurious! And the price is fabulous for this big bag....but I wasn't expecting a damaged bag. I understand that "as is" could be a customer return or sample but I still expected it to be in good condition. Mine (nutmeg) arrived with pen marks in 3 different places on the outside! I think that's a little ridiculous. If I LOVED the bag I might over look it but it's just okay. And still really pricey for something already damaged. Probably going back.
Love this bag!
The "as is" price is amazing. No need to pay full price. It's perfect!
EXPECTED A DIFFERENT COLOR
This was my first, "As is," so I was apprehensive. I have 10 B Mac full-price bags & love the styles, engineering of space in the bags, & soft glove leather. But this one took me off guard. I expected some imperfections (turned out to be scratches,) but the vibrant color, freesia, I saw on my t.v. screen was NOT what I saw when I opened the box. Still not sure I'll keep the bag. The color was a lot lighter & NOT vibrant. Usually the colors of items I get are darker than what I see on the t.v. screen due to the intense light they need to use to show the product well. Please, hosts, describe the color you see in person, so we know what is coming to us! I know some hosts do, but all need to. T.V.s are all different. Or maybe "freesias" are!
So glad I purchased this "As Is" bag by Bruce Makowsky, which arrived in repackaging -- but pristine condition. The satchel is lightweight (which addresses my complaint with his line that they have been too heavy) and just puddles in your hands, which is something for which I search. Will insert my transferable purse organizer for additional structure. At the reduced price, this bag really is a great value.
