So this was on sale on net-a-porter for $229. Zappos had the same thing and I asked them to do a price adjustment which they honored with an extra 10 percent off so it came to 205.70 with free ON shipping. The leather on this bag is very soft and I think it will make a good everyday bag. I can't stop touching the leather! My only issue is that wearing it over the shoulders is a little tight but with the softness of the leather, I think the straps will stretch a little once the bag is weighed down with stuff in it.
