This bag whore needs help! I am looking at fairly rugged leather messenger bag/backpack hybrids. For example: http://www.bexargoods.com/products/leather-satchel-black-handmade and http://www.etwasbags.com/collection/backpack/ Has anyone come across other options? Thanks.
Thanks for the review. Sounds like a great bag!!! I am glad you like it. The Mismo bag is a very different bag though, so maybe we are comparing apples and oranges, so...I think you should get it woohoo!!!!
Same as what Velomane said above, I refused to buy from retailers who don't refund VAT. They are basically cheating, pocketing the VAT as extra profit. One of those retailers is Coggles in the UK - they blatantly told me they would not refund VAT. I have boycotted them since. There are enough shops around. The only exception I have made is with Marks and Spencer because as a Brit living in the US I often crave their stuff (best undies!!!) and they did offer me free...
You mean upon seeing the Saunter tote? There is a big price difference!! I think that leather postal tote is a bargain for $140, no? How are you going to use it? What will you carry in it? Which colour did you get? I get excited about bag purchases.
Cool. My experience was the same for FedEx but they said it was a one-time thing....

Thanks guys! One thing though - FedEx has been able to give me a fairly straight forward answer regarding how much I'd be charged. The same can't be said for UPS - even their employees told me they had no idea. Their website offers some information but it's confusing and ambiguous.Web research revealed disdain for both companies, and experiences can vary depending on locations.
Would like to pick your experienced brains. I have ordered about US$350 worth of merchandise from the UK. Seller ships UPS ("Express Saver") and FedEx. Which one would you go for? I am based in the US. UPS site apparently states "Worldwide Saver" (I guess different from "Express Saver") won't incur custom charges but somehow I don't think that's accurate. The information on customs on their site is quite confusing. To contribute to the "stories", two months ago I...
I saw the bag at Barney's yesterday. Yeah I think if it was a bit darker, it'd be more versatile. Nice looking though!! What's your final decision! :-)
Is it all leather? Is the "Baltic Blue" quite bright? I love how the softness of the leather brushes against my body (omg did it just eroticize a bag?!). Mine is black. :-)
