sometimes one buys for love and sometimes one buys for money (something about that sounds so familiar?). this one was for the love. interesting shapes, lickable leather and a great palette. and HELLO the man puts a small LED flashlight in every bag - hooked to the inside so you can find your stuff! they ain't cheap but they're built to last. as you can see by the busy booth in the bottom left corner, jerome is belle du jour for the moment. I think he's built to last like his bags.
