Ok....I am so surprised by this bag. I had a whole different idea of what it would be. I thought it was a thin leathered bag. The leather is thick and very luxurious. Much thicker than I expected. Very very comfy on the shoulder with a nice slouch. The color is not NOT a Plum or Vibrant Blue as we see in some pics. It's a true Ink color, A dark deep Blueberry color. My husband said it was black when I asked him what color it was but then I put it in the light and he said it's a dark violet blue. It's gorgeous and lush feeling but I think it is going to be quite sturdy. The leather does not look sensitive. Hubby said it was a very classy looking bag. He did not think it was a Kooba. It's going to be very very useable. Lightweight and comfortable with the 2 front handy pockets. I am glad I got it. I am using it right now. In my pics the bag is the true-est to color I could get but it still has lightened the bag a touch. Think of a Dark Blueberry and that is the color.
