i was looking for a new bag as a holiday bag. i tried this one in the store, it just looked right. i was eyeing on Alma, but it did not look as good as i thought on me. so i came to a conclusion, not only clothes you need to try on, the bag you must try on too. some popular nice bags may not suit your style and look.
i found this cloth in the bag, i guess it is for cleaning or protecting.
another reason i chose this bag is that i can see myself use it more often. it is structured and shiny, but it is also causal as it is a tote style.
i am happy with my choice at the end. this is a good bag.
I just noticed my poncho is a little different from the pictures on the website. the pockets on mine did not come with leather trim, which i prefer. i thought leather trim on pockets was redundant.
