Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather East/West Pocket Satchel
Love the shape and size
I'm not sure I'd buy Florentine leather again, but I do love the bag (tends to get scratches and spots that, hopefully, will be less noticeable as the product ages). Great pocket on the front (and another example of fine craftsmanship is the fact that the pull strap on the front was engineered to lay down flat no matter how much you fill the gusset pocket). I'm also happy that the top zipper works flawlessly, unlike some of my other D&B bags. I increased the versatility of the strap by punching another hole because wanted to add 'shoulder bag' to the 2 already-existing ways of carrying it (by the small handles, or cross-body by the long strap). The bottom is a little bit wide for it to lay close to your body - but it's worth it for the extra room. 10" tablet fits fine. I bought it in Natural because I wanted an everyday bag that goes with everything. Love the hardware and top stitching. All in all, I'm very happy with my purcchase.
My mother purchased this bag for me in the navy. It is beautiful I love the leather and the feel of the bag. I've currently given my LV a rest for this wonderful gift. It's not large or small I'm able to get my wallet inside, mini iPad, iPhone and makeup pouch. Even with all this the bag sits well. The cross body strap is rather short so I just hang it on my shoulder when I get tired of the satchel style.
This is a big beautiful bag.
Got the navy. I love it. It is a little bigger than I need. 6" wide. I use it with and without the strap. Great when you need to add extra things to your bag. I love the top zipper with the leather fringe pull. I like the red interior too. This is my second dooney.
Just received my bag today and I already love it. I returned another style because it was just too big, but the East/West bag is the perfect size. Beautiful leather.(I chose natural) that I'm sure will only get more beautiful with age. I am not sure about the shoulder strap. In my opinion it's a bit too narrow for the weight of the purse, but then I'm not really a shoulder strap lover anymore. I am already wanting the same bag in either Crimson or Moss. Can't make up my mind. Wish they would put this bag on Easy Pay, then I might get both. An iPad fits in the bag and an iPhone will fit in the outside slip pocket with a bit showing at the top.
I have been carrying this bag for over a year now and I still LOVE it!! It is a very heavy bag but it's an amazing quality thick leather. I got the natural and the color has aged beautifully. LOVE IT!
Beautiful bag. Can't get over how well made and just plain beautiful this is. I can tell I will have this bag for many, many years of use!
Love My Dooney bag
I have 2 Dooney bags and they are the best bags in my collection. Wish I could afford a couple more. They are pricey, but of the highest quality. I spilled a soda in my Dooney, I wiped it out right away, and to this day you cannot tell that anything was spilled in it. No watermarks, etc. Love, love my Dooneys!!!!!
Another hit by Dooney & Bourke
I love this bag! Easy access with the dome shape, nice structure, great organization, I have this in the Ivy color and wow what a beauty:) This is such a nice addition to my collection of Dooneys, I love switching off and having such a variety, the quality of Dooney bags are exceptional! I keep coming back to only Dooney, because of their quality and style, you gotta get this bag you will love it:)
I ordered Ivy color, and am not disappointed. Well made -- nice detail -- purse will last me long time. Ordered D&B's before, but always seemed slightly too large or small so returned them. I liked width of this one -- bottom was larger -- seems to hold more things. Am also amazed at weight of purse once I put everything in it -- not as heavy as I expected. Really pleased with my purchase. Might buy another color in this East/West style.
Another Great Dooney Purchase!
I purchased this bag in the Natural and absolutely love it. Love the front pocket and the convenience of having a place to put items that I use often. Perfect Size! Satisfied customer!
As Is Bag
Got this in chestnut,beautiful as is bag. Everything was there . Second time trying these bags, not my last.
I absolutely love this bag, slightly disappointed with a couple of scratches that were on when I first opened it and that the reddish brown sealant used to seal the handles was sloppily applied (it was on the purse in a few places). Otherwise, this is my 5th Downey and definitely not my last!
