Tignanello Glove Leather Quilted North/South Tote
This bag is beautiful. Love the quilting on top along with glove leather base. Very compartmentalized. I have room for everything I need with the 2 inner zippered center pockets as well. The chains on handles give it an elegant look. Can't go wrong with this one.
Love all the separate compartments!
I bought this bag after returning a D&B bag that was over sized and didn't have any compartments in it. I bought this and another Tignanello both for 1/2 the price of a D&B and both bags better suite my needs. I'm def devoted to Tignanello from now on. The patent leather feels great on the outside and the material on the inside is silky smooth. If you're hesitant to buy this bag because of the size don't be-it doesn't look any bigger in person than any other large bag. The only issue I've had with this bag is at times both straps don't want to stay up on my shoulder. However, with the powerful magnet this bag has to keep it shut, the strap is a random inconvenience.
The jury is still out
I took this purse out of the box and it was absolutely beautiful. I put it on the table and it stood up beautifully. Then I took the stuffing out of the bottom and it collapsed. The top of the purse is thick and nicely reinforced, but there isn’t any real support in the bottom or sides of the bag, so it can not stand on it’s own. This really disappointed me, I expected more for the money and from this brand. I am hoping once I put my essentials in the bag it will stand nicely, otherwise I think it is going back.
Sadly, this bag did not work out for me. It just didn't fold together nicely. Maybe with only one center zip compartment, it wouldn't feel so bulky.
I'm usually a fan of Tignanello but this one must go back.
Very Roomy but Doesn't Look Oversized
I really dislike "sloppy" looking unstructured bags and that seems like all there is when you look for bags that can hold a lot. However, this bag has a bit more formal and clean structure without looking too plain or boring. The rolled leather handles, chain detailing and the two-texture quilted and smooth glove leather give unique and beautiful details without going overboard. The leather itself is gloriously buttery and very nice quality.
The best part of this bag, though, has to be the organizational quality of the zippered pocket interior! There are 3 separate full size section that are easy to access from the top. Plenty of room for all your normal stuff. There's even enough room for e-readers and probably a regular tablet too. Plus the section dividers are also full width zippered pockets, themselves. Those are very useful. I use one for cosmetics I don't want roaming around the rest of the bag and the other to keep medications and medical supplies secure. There are also another small zippered pocket on one interior outer panel and a couple of divided open pockets on the other outer panel-handy for tubes of lipstick, pens and post it notepads. The top is held closed by a super strong magnet. I've turned the fully loaded bag upside down to test and it held tight, even when I shook it hard!.
The outside has two full width invisible panel pockets (the smooth leather part) that are really handy for sliding your cellphone, plane tickets or other thin items that need quick access. They're held closed by very strong magnets. I can slide my phone in and out without releasing the magnet, but have no fear of it falling out since the pocket is tight enough to hold it snugly.
I love that this bag holds every thing I need to haul along-with room to spare, but doesn't look oversized or sloppy. It's a beautifully tailored and well made, classically styled but not boring bag that should last for years.
VERY PLEASED WITH PURCHASE
This Tignanello A216799 purse is a very nice large purse, dressy and sophisticated looking bag, reminding me of the famous Chanel quilted handbags that have the light tone quilting on black tone leather. This bag is much better as it is ten times bigger than any of those little designer handbags, and the price tag is not prohibitive (in the thousands of dollars price range). So here you get the designer look, without the designer price, and the bag is better engineered in that it is much bigger, much more roomier, and much better organized with many more options. I found a comparable Chanel bag on EBay (their item number 180980136978) and it was $4,199 dollars, - - - - oh my gosh!
I couldn't be happier with the bag!
Organization is the Best
Love the outer pockets which is something I like in a bag and the organization inside the bag is the best. All the magnetic closures are hidden and strong. Now for the outside glove leather which I have bought in the past. This feels like a better glove leather and almost feels like some of the BM bags I have. There is a tag on the bag that says TOUCHABLES. I'm also surprised at the handles. I usually don't care for rolled handles but these were actually SOFT rolled handles. Not sure if they were vinyl or leather but I really liked them. I bought the Navy and might go back for another color. I agree that more colors should be made. One last thing, IF TIGNANELLO WOULD START MAKING ALL LEATHER BAGS, I WOULD GLADLY PAY MORE FOR THEM, SO PLEASE TAKE NOTE.
I LOVE this bag.
This is the perfect purse. I've gotten many compliments on it, which is an added bonus. I have it in black for me, and then I got my mother one in sand. It has so much room without looking bulky. It's organization is amazing. I can find all my stuff with no problems. I put my phone in one of the outer magnetic pockets. I have my wallet, etc. on one side, and I put my hair brush, makeup etc. on the other side. Then you have the center part (where I put a mini umbrella at times as well as receipts and other things that I need to take out later). Plus you have two inner zipper compartments that separate the three sections. In one of those I put tampons, aspirin, bandaids, and other items I want to keep zipped and hidden away for occasional use. In the other zippered inner compartment, I put gum, mints, thin folding grocery bags, etc. I also often store my iPad in the center portion, and there is plenty of room for it. This is the perfect bag for work. Looks good, organizes everything and is very professional yet stylish. It's got other little pockets inside where I stash a lipstick and/or change for the parking meter. I highly recommend this bag to anyone who is looking for a stylish purse with plenty of room and great organization. The magnetic closures are also very strong and secure. I just wish they'd make this purse in even more color combinations.
Best Bag EVER
I bought the sand/stone, LOVE LOVE LOVE. I'm going to get the black next. Compartments bags are what I look for. It holds everything and then some. Love the chain detail and just the over all look. I want all the colors. Please keep on easy pay till I achieve my goal of collecting all of them.
Amazing, beautiful bag!
This bag is beautiful, spacious, soft, not too heavy, & highly organized, with all its compartments. Exactly the kind of bag I have been looking for, for a long time.. This bag blew my D&B that I have been carrying, right out of the water. I bought the red. I love it!
I liked the style of this bag, however, it's too heavy even when empty. So by the time I put my things in it it was too heavy to be comfortable to carry. I ordered the black with sand trim. The sand color looks like a dirty off white and not complimentary to the black. So back it went. Sorry.
