Hello fellow HHH!! I haven't bought a new HH in FOREVER!! I was browsing on their website recently and noticed the Turnlock Hobo in merlot. The stock pics make the bag look metallicy and cheap, but after watching the video - the merlot is actually a deep, wine colour (which is what I was hoping for). I chatted with CS and they confirmed it was indeed a deep, rich, wine colour.
I have a code so I got the bag for $126.00 shipped. I received the bag last week and overall the bag is great. The colour is rich, the vintage patent leather is nice - and the bag is very lightweight. The light gold hardware looks great against the bag as well.
My only beef? It didn't come with a dustbag. I emailed HH about it and they said that only some Hayden for Hayden Harnett bags come with dust bags. WTH? I know it's not a huge deal but you would think that a dustbag should be standard.
Anyhoo, here's a quick pic. The colour is a lot more deeper irl.
The stock pics make the merlot colour look metallic, which it isn't at all. It is a deep, delicious red wine colour. Very nice and to me it seems more like a glazed leather than patent. I am loving the bag so far. Very comfy and lightweight. The back pocket is great as well.
