Hobo International has been around for a good long time. My opinion is that they make nice quality bags with very good leather and hardware. Hopefully, the newer designs haven't cheapened out with lining and such like most other designers.
I have a hobo wallet that I LOVE and a clutch too. Both are made of nice leather and look good with age. I've used my wallet every day since I bought it (about 9 months) and it has held up wonderfully. Good luck with your bag!
