It is hard to tell in the pictures, but the leather is really soft. The bag is very smooshy and would lose it's shape without stuff in it. My husband doesn't like it. Not that he really cares or has a say, but it's still a bummer. The only thing I am not sure about is the MK fob. It is huge. It is twice the size of the ones they tie to other bags with a leather strap. I sort of wish it had the smaller one. Sorry some of the pics are blurry. Is she a keeper?
