J Crew large leather Thompson tote (99233) - Currently on promo for $125, down from $198, I believe. You can save up to 30% more off with the fantas-mi-tabulous HOHOHO promo. An addt'l 30% off will bring the tote to $87.50 before tax. Woot woot!
IRL - Love the yellow. IMO it looks good with the following coat colors: chocolate, ivory, gray, leopard (!). I also ordered it in ivory and hopefully that will arrive soon. I think I am going to end up keeping the yellow tote only, but we'll see. The ivory may sleigh me.
The interior is unlined. That may be a drawback for some. Also, it doesn't have a flat bottom. The tote is sewn so you can lay items at the bottom, but the seams that would create a true, flat bottom aren't there. Neither of these facts bother me. I am thrilled with my patent Candance tote and if this one serves me similarly (sans lining), I will be thrilled.
Nice interior pocket and an additional pouch for your ID, change, etc...
I remember looking for a smaller leather lunch tote years ago and the price was around $50, $60. So this is a great deal at $88 and I think it's worth the original retail price. Again, I'm not an expert in leather but my father used to make bags and this is on par w/the quality of leather he used. I expect this will wear well. I definitely need to put conditioning oil on it and protective spray to help it stay nice, but I see getting a long life out of it.
ETA: Great packaging job. I was very impressed when I received it. It felt like a Collection piece could be inside. Go J Crew!
