Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather East/West Pocket Satchel
I love this bag. I got it in this blue. Perfect size. Thanks Dooney
I Was Disappointed
First let me say that I am a huge D&B fan. I own and love many of their bags. My disappointment with respect to this bag is the fact that the underside of the shoulder strap is tan instead of navy like the rest of the bag that I ordered. For some reason this is a big deal to me as I think it makes the bag look way cheaper than it is. With that said, as is customary with all D&B bags it is supremely constructed with great organization and the leather is beautiful. I believe the underside of the shoulder strap being tan should be pointed out during the presentation.
This bag was a push present from my husband. I had only had Coach purses before this one. The quality is excellent. I really like this bag. Would buy D & B again.
A FOREVER BAG
JUST RECEIVED THIS IN CHESTNUT. I AM A "COLLECTOR" OF HANDBAGS. THIS IS DESTINED TO BE ONE OF MY FAVORITES. IT HAD A SCRATCH ON THE FRONT WHEN IT WAS RECEIVED, BUT I MANAGED TO RUB IT OUT WITH A LITTLE LEATHER POLISH. I AM UPSET HOWEVER, BECAUSE IT DID NOT COME WITH A DUST BAG.
THIS IS THE THIRD DOONEY AND BOURKE I HAVE RECEIVED WITHOUT THE BAG. SINCE I HAVE SO MANY BAGS THE DUST BAGS ARE IMPORTANT TO ME.PLEASE SEND THE DUST BAG. I CERTAINLY WOULD APPRECIATE IT. LAST YEAR I BOUGHT THE FLORAL TOTE AND THE WHITE WITH THE BROWN DB'S AND NEITHER HAD THE DUST BAGS. WHAT'S WRONG THAT THESE ARE NOT INCLUDED? THIS SHOULD BE A PART OF THE BAGS.
I was looking for a smaller looking medium D&B handbag that I could take to a 5 day conference that would hold my oversized wallet, some personal items, my smart phone and my full-sized IPad. This bag is perfect for my needs and it even has a strap that allows me to be hands-free when I need to be. I purchased the taupe and I love it.
Great Bag! (Answer to Bag ID question also)
I ordered this bag in the taupe and I actually love the color more in person than what I saw online. It is a much darker color and will work well in all seasons. It is a heavy bag. I considered returning it, but I love the shape, style, and color. I still placed A LOT of things in the bag and I am now getting used to its weight.It is expected for the type of leather. For the customer who posted she didn't know where the Bag ID number is, it is on the back of the small tag that says "Dooney and Burke" that is sewn into the bag. If you open your bag, the tag is in the middle left hand side. I had to hunt for mine also, but found it. Hope this helps. Overall, this was a great purchase.
Think I Got Defective Dooney
I love Dooney bags and have several. Al extremely well made. The smith bag is my favorite so far. Excellent leather, perfect bag. I received this East West satchel and the leather was scratched and dented. O ring on one of the handles was oxidized or rusted. Tried to wipe it off but didn't work. So I am reordering in another color, crimson. Hope it's better. This bag was clearance not an as is bag. Verdict still out on this bag!
My search is over!!
I have been buying Dooney & Bourke hand bags for a long time (own far too many) -- trying to find my perfect match. Finally I have found the one and only. Was even worried about the chestnut color but now that I have received the bag, I am even crazy over it. The bag is the correct size for my needs. There are not enough superlatives for this hand bag and received it at a clearance price! What's not to love?
Received & am so disappointed. Bag is too big & very stiff. Back it goes....
Best Dooney I've Ever Purchase
OMG!!! I have over fifteen Dooney & Bourke handbags, this purse is by far the best . The size, weight, zipper pull, and the color is perfect. Thank you Dooney
Love This Bag!
I bought this as an, as is, it's great. It didn't have the stuffing in it, so. It was in perfect condition. It's beautiful, clean, and 100.00 cheaper. I bought this in crimson. The size is on the larger size of medium. I just love it! I will get this also in the moss. Great purse!
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.
