I've started a similar discussion as this one on the Art of Manliness Community Site in the Man Bags group to see what the opinions are like there. You can check out the discussion at the link below.

Hey, I designed that bag. Thanks for the kind words and glowing description. You're exactly the kind of person I want carrying one of my bags. Welcome to the inside. It's cold out there. Warm regards, Dave Munson Presidente Saddleback Leather Co.

If you would like to trade it out for a suede lined one, no problem. Just refer to this post and they'll take care of you even though it's a year later. Sorry about that. So, the reason you got a pigskin lined...
Okay, so this is Dave from Saddleback again. I'd like to help folks understand the pigskin lining. I was surprised to hear somebody accuse Saddleback of falsely advertising that we use pigskin, but that it's truly synthetic. This is the first time I've heard somebody suggest that. Saddleback uses 100% pigskin for lining unless someone requests suede. Here's how you can tell. We don't paint the edges of the cut leather and pigskin on the bags and so the layers of skin...
