I've had many come in to the shop with leather goods they purchased in Morocco. Most, nice stuff for the price. The consistent complaint is, "Can you get rid of the smell"? So far I have not come up with a solution. Be careful with your purchases. Don't buy in when they tell you the oder will go away, it won't.

For decades AE worked hard to earn a stellar reputation. With that they accumulated a very large loyal customer base. In the mid to...
