I'm wondering how the quality is on these. Also wondering if the VIPx is huge IRL.
I bought a Thickskin Bucket bag. I gave it to my mother.
The quality is very nice, the leather is divine and the attention to detail very good as well.
For me the problem was that I ordered direct from Thickskin and for whatever reason it took over 4 weeks to get the bag; by the time it arrived I had purchased a Thomas Wylde hobo bag and didn't want to rotate in the Thickskin bucket - hence, how my mother ended up with it.
I don't know if their distribution has gotten any better over time; but, I would hope so - 4 weeks is a long time to wait for a bag (that is not a Birkin).
Wow 4 weeks is a long time!
Wow...4 weeks? Wow.
The VIPx looks huge...My stuff would get lost in one of those. But it's soooo pretty.
Thickskin bags are gorgeous. My husband wanted to get one for me as a Christmas gift when they were offering certain bags for half off via toutie.com. He emailed and never received a response. It's too bad because I really wanted that bag.
I have the Thickskin bucket and regular VIP bags (both in the color black cannibal- they were in her liquidation sale)
I originally ordered and recieved the VIPx but when I got it, I freaked out because it was way to big for me- much larger than I imagined.. she let me exchange it because she sent me the wrong color..normally they don't allow returns for sales..so I exchanged it for the VIP. I thought the VIPx would be like your typical large tote bag (to carry a few notebooks in etc), but it was HUGE- much more like a luggage bag for a trip. It was gorgeous otherwise (well-made, etc), but I wouldn't have ever used it, except to pack my stuff for vacations..
Was the VIPx pretty heavy? Hmmm, it's sounding like it might be too big for me. I was hoping to use it as a work bag--laptop, files, etc.
