No personal experience here. Is this their site? http://www.mysteryranch.com Which bag were you referring to? They seem sturdy. Not my kind of bags though.That site is interesting - a cross between Farfetch and Etsy?
I agree. I have always liked Bleu de Chauffe but that one does look too much like the Mismo Day Pack. I say go for Bleu de Chauffe's leather bags - their waxed cotton offerings haven't been as interesting. You could also wait for sale time - I have seen Mismo stuff on sale by retailers but you will have to be quick.
1) Buttero tan leather derbies $190
Worn only twice. They are a bit too roomy for me, unexpectedly, as other Butteros I have are in 41 and they fit me perfectly. I love Butteros. They are built like tanks.

Leather soles but I had tan nonslip put on.

The leather is very good - it's super soft and lush. It's roomy, and I like the size of it. I won't...
^ Do you think the older Coach products were of better quality? I can't comment on that bag because I have not seen it irl but I keep hearing the quality of current Coach products are not very good (with regard to price to quality ratio). It is my pet peeves, though, that a leather duffle bag comes with a nylon strap. It's a cost cutting move by the company. I think it's look so much better with a leather strap.
