Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Clayton Satchel
SO GORGEOUS YET SO HEAVY
I have been looking for my
Holy Grail of purchases and there it was right on my tv!
I couldn't order quickly enough!
I purchased bone color because it has a hint of yellow which I wanted.
The drawback is the weight. It is a large bag made with high quality leather and hardware. I have a bad back which makes it a bit heavy but I use the shoulder strap when the bag is packed full which is easy to do because it is large.
I think it may be the most lovely Dooney I have ever found.
4 star rating is only for the weight.
Not Made In USA
Pretty leather but please make the bags here In the US or don't charge so much for them
I purchased this Dooney about 3 weeks ago. It is one of the best purses I've ever had! I love large bags and this one is that! It holds more than it seems it would. The outside pockets are so convenient. The Florentine leather is unbelievably soft! So far, I love EVERTHING about this bag. I'm hoping it will be a favorite for years to come!
"I debated about getting this bag for months because of the price tag, but I finally purchased the black bag as a Happy Birthday to me and I am so glad that I did. It is a large bag that will stand up to the test of time. The quality of the leather will allow for years of use. There is great organization with the inside and outside pockets, having the ability to use it as a cross body as well as handles makes it versatile for me. It will be my travel bag for business trips when I need to carry all those extra items. This is not a light bag but not so heavy that I cannot use it every day if I wanted too
very good purchase
I love the size. A lot of space to keep your items organized.. Love the fact that u can use the handles or the strap..
Love The Pockets On This Dooney
Purchased the Clayton Satchel in Ocean Blue, gorgeous, saturated color. I love the pockets on this bag. Most of my Dooney's have either no outside pockets or only one. But this bag has five. As always, wonderful organization inside as well. I love the bags that give me the option of carrying with either handles or long strap, whether over the shoulder or crossbody, straps are always appreciated. This is a heavy bag, not for the faint of heart. When I invest in a bag of this magnitude, I want to feel the weight of the price on my arm. Florentine leather is amazing, always makes me think of riding saddles, the leather speaks to you as you walk with the bag, touch the bag, and the smell of that leather is simply divine. I absolutely love this bag. The only problem I have with the bag is that I now have so many Dooneys, it's hard to decide which one to wear and when to switch. I never want to put them away.
I adore this bag! It's functional and the leather is amazing. The bag is large but I don't load it up and it's fine. I really want another color. It's a timeless bag.
The leather is really high quality but the design and solid colors have very little contrast stitching which makes this bag kind of blah. It just doesn't make as much of a statement as I thought it would for the price. I understand classics, but this kind of bored me even though Dooneys are great quality bags and I own some others. They need to spice things up a bit!
Stop and Stare!!!!!
When you walk in with this bag you have ALL the attention in the room. This is my most favorite Dooney (so far). I have it in navy and the color is a rich rich deep navy, simply beautiful. I loved it so much (and this is something I never do) I purchased it in the baby pink!!!!!! I can't wait to receive it, pink is my signature color. Yes the bag is a bit heavy but who cares, you look great carrying it and after a while you don't even notice the weight..This bag is a little expensive so I would encourage anyone to check out the "as is" Dooney & Bourke bags. I have purchased many of mine from there and never had any problems with them. Save a little money but you'll feel the same when you walk in the room. Go Dooney & Bourke!!!!! Keep 'em coming and I'll keep buying them.
Looks a bit odd with the tiny handles and looks out of proportion to size of bag. A big shoulder strap or two good sized handles to carry in crook of arm would have been preferable. Love the superior quality. But, didn't look right with the small handles so I'm sad I had to return. Color of ocean blue was lovely.
Best Purchase Ever
Received my clayton bag today in the violet color and it is truly an amazing bag!! The bag came packed perfectly in the original manufacturers wrapping, which is expected when you pay as much for a bag like this. I cannot wait to purchase another but unfortunately they are out of the ocean blue color which I am sorry I didnot order sooner. Donot hesitate on this one because this bag is so much nicer than just the pictures online here. It really is a gorgeous bag.
Great Professional Bag
I just graduated from art school, and needed a bag that I would feel confident going to interviews and meeting clients, it took me a long time but then I saw this and I knew it was the one. A year has past and I'm so happy that I made this purchase, even though it was a bit expensive I've made the money back and now work at an ad agency where I get compliments on the bag all the time. Thank you so much.
