As a matter of fact my first "nice bag" was a Donald Pliner red hobo with white contrast stitching. I've been very happy with the quality and have had lots of compliments on it. It comfortable to carry and quite attractive. I thought that it was large until I bought my first Kooba hobo which makes this one seem small. The pockets inside are trimmed in leather and there is a neat clip inside to put your keys on, which I really like. The leather is soft but also quite sturdy with its pebbled texture. I have used it quite often but it still does not show any obvious signs of use. I'm not nearly as knowledgeable as most of the gals on TPF but to me it seems like a very nice bag.
