A216762 - Tignanello Retro Leather Front Flap Crossbody Bag
Good looking, leather disappointing
I really like the look of this bag, but I could not accept the cheap, thin feeling leather. Sorry!
So many of the Tig features that have been the reason I've not bought anything but a Tig bag for the past 10 years remain, such as the magnetic close and the outside/easy access pockets and the quality of the leather. This would have been my fave Tig bag ever but I am so disappointed with the PVC trim. I never would have guessed this is a Tig bag from the quality. I've been using it to see if it could grow on me but frankly I have been embarrassed to carry this bag so it's definitely being sent back.
SO DISAPPOINTED IN THIS BAG, SENT BACK SAME DAY.SEWING WAS STRECHED IN THE FRONT POCKET WITH A MISSING STITCH. QC DID NOT LOOK AT THIS BEFORE IT WAS SENT OUT.IT JUMPED OUT AT YOU.AND WHAT IS THE MATERIAL ON THE SIDES? I GIVE ONE STAR ONLY FOR THE SIZE OF THE BAG AND LIGHT WEIGHT.
Much smaller than it looks...
I wanted to love this purse..I DO LOVE this Brand... - over all this is a alright purse if you like SMALL purses. The opening in the main bag is a decent size but when you put a cell phone in the 'interior slip picket' it becomes a pain to locate anything in the purse without nearly emptying the bag. It's on its way back.....
Cute but Cheap
Cute purse but the plastic cheapens it. I love Tig purses but this one's going back. Not worth the money.
Cute & Classy
I bought this bag in olive a few months ago but sent it back. I could not see paying 90 dollars for such a small bag. When I found out on a tig show a few weeks ago it was on clearence and my chances of getting it would be gone I reordered it. I had liked it so much that I got two colors wine & olive. It's a small bag with a lot of class and there isn't anything like it out there. Just a note I found for some reason the retro leather bags tend to scratch up and get marks on them with normal use. I had the retro hobo style cognac but sent that one back because every time I used it I would come home with new scratches on it. Alison maybe you can try and fix this by coating the leather somehow. I hope to see more summer colors in the retro like peony or coral ? Anyway I have about 15 tigs now and love them all. I would like to see a bigger cross body style in this retro line.
I purchased this bag for a birthday present for my college age daughter. She was looking for a stylish handbag to use at school that was not bulky. I saw this bag on the website and took a chance. She was very excited about the bag and uses it all the time at college. Many people compliment her on how stylish the bag is and how nice the leather is crafted. I personally like the look of the two tone bag and also the inside lining is great -- not just plain. Overall, I am glad I made this purchase and my daughter was very pleased with the gift. I have another Tignanello suede bag that has held up over time. I am hoping this one will also stand the test of time. Don't hesitate if you like this bag.
Thanks For The Retro!
I love the leather of this bag. I also love the style. I don't mind the pvc, because as far as my attention span for bags go, I'll use it until I'm tired of it and then give it away. It is kind of hard to get into the middle of the bag, it has a smallish opening. There are enough extra compartments to make up for that though. I'm looking forward to a lot more "Retro" bags from Tig. By the way, I purchased the brown, beautiful color. This is my everyday bag now for a while. Thanks Tig!
This bag is almost perfect, just a few flaws. The leather is great, super soft. Great size though I'd prefer a bit smaller for a crossbody (I only carry my wallet, phone and a chapstick...I don't understand what women carry in those huge shoppers/hobos!). Although I'd obviously prefer all leather, I don't think the PVC looks or feels that bad...very pliable. When the strap is shortened all the way the end really sticks out...really needs a loop of PVC to hold down the end. Overall...really like it!
Not quite right
After much deliberation I ended up sending this bag back. I loved the color(wine), the size, the crossbody and the leather(what leather there was). Unfortunately the strap is made of PVC. They did not mention this during the presentation. It is very stiff and fake looking and for almost $100 I would expect the whole bag to be made of leather.
Sorry Tig-try again and I will try a retro leather bag again! It reminded me of my bags in the 70's.
This is a very good style & mid-size. But I agree with the previous comment about the PVC strap & trim. It's stiff & cheap. I'd prefer all leather, even if it cost a bit more. Be careful when opening the flap because the buckle could scratch or dent delicate furniture when it's flipped. I love magnetic closures (no zippers to break or scratch hands). This one is very strong. That's good for security but needs a strong pull to open. That could be a problem for some. All the colors are pretty.
Retro Vintage Cool!
Bought this in the green and absolutely love it! it's a great crossbody with a vintage feel to it that will be great this fall. The lining is gorgeous and it is the perfect size for your essentials. Love, love!
