I am looking for a good carry on bag for the trip I am planning.
I thought that Alexandra looks like a good size and easy to carry for big airplane trip.
Did anyone already got it? How the leather feels like? It looks nice and soft leather from the picture. I am thinking in black.
Thanks in advance!

I am no help since I don't have one. But all I know is it looks really good. I was in NY and saw a lady carrying this in her work attire and thought it looked really good. I notice this one has a zipper too - always great thing for traveling.

That's what I thought. Good big size, has zipper, and leather looks soft. I thought of Saffiano tote but it's more structured and maybe hard to carry around on the trip.

Thank you for your thoughts!!

SO IRONIC, this was my exact purchase yesterday for they very same reason as I'm headed to sunny AZ for vacation in a couple weeks...COUNTING THE DAYS! :smile: I went to the outlet to pick up something else I had on hold and they had just gotten the FP deleted Alex Baby Bags in Black Patent Op C Stitch ..I never saw these up close...and let me just say..this might be the most PERFECT Large tote I've ever seen!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. I was debating about the coated canvas or saffiano large one..but no way, this Alex tops them all!

It hit all my "must haves" for a large tote - It's organizational heaven inside, tons of easy access pockets outside while still being streamlined and not bulky looking, it's super comfy on the arm, it is very soft for a patent - has feet and will fit under the seat on the plane, I can fit the purse I'm bringing inside...plus it's black patent, so it's durable for travel and easily cleanable. and it's super cute! :smile: plus I will use this for more than just travel! It's just a great great bag!! I think you will be happy with one!

I picked up the white/chambray one saturday at the outlet and I love it! Great size, the zipper is awesome and not a breakaway and I love the back slip compartment for keys and cell. The strap drop is comfortble too and I feel the leather is substancial and sturdy. Fits all my daily things plus, water bottle, magazine and a few extras! HTH

Now I am getting excited about this bag!!
Your black patent Op C stich is GORGEOU!!
Thank you for all the pictures! It looks really roomy inside. MFF one doesn't look like has lot's of pockets like yours but I don't mind so much because I always use organizing bags inside the big bag.

Thank you again and have a great trip!!!:biggrin:

I live in Canada:sad: I should put that in my profile....
I really love your bag and noticed it has strap which MFF doesn't. What a great find!
