I'm sitting here with a $1,000 Merch. Card and was hoping the Kira would be a great "Coach Leather" bag. But, this is disappointing that it has glaze on it. $898 is not cheap. I would have expected it to have that great Coach leather.Unfortunately, the Kira has glazed leather! Some pieces have more texture than others, which seem specific to the dye color involved. IMO the leather is pretty thin. It's nice enough, but still not my fav, as I also don't care for the thin glazed leather... but this has been a trend not just with Coach. I'm with you on the thick and more matte leather...or at least without the glaze!
I'm also with Nancy! Legacy and some of the older Bleecker bags...this is what I like. Even my leather Zoes have thicker nicer leather than some of my more expensive bags.
As mad as I've gotten at Coach this last year, I've still hung on to all my favorite "bags from the past." I won't let my disappointment get the best of me and sell my lovely collection off.
