Leather Bag Checklist
leather bag checklist Leather bags are expensive, so when it comes to buying one you need to be sure that it's genuine. You can easily be fooled, if you don't know much about leather bags. We list down 5 tips that will help you know whether or not it's actual leather and if the bag is worth buying...

  1. Finish
    When buying a leather bag, check for any imperfections on the leather. The leather should be supple and smooth. Remember, the softer the leather, the more expensive it is. As far as the maintenance goes, smooth and patent finishes are quite easy to care for, while suede may require some extra care if you want it to last longer. So, make a choice!
  2. Stitching
    It’s important to check the stitching. If the stitching and seams are not strong, it simply means your bag won't take too much weight and will break or tear in no time. Also check to see how neat the stitching is. If you're paying, you need to make sure it's in good quality. If the stitching is sloppy, there's no point spending a bomb after it.
  3. Lining
    When buying a leather bag, remember that the inside is just as important as the outside. Open the bag up and check the lining and seams. You want a good quality lining that won’t tear or fall apart on you. This is especially important when you’re buying a leather bag to use every day.  
  4. Attachments
    Look at the attachment points on your bag to make sure that they are secure. These are things like handles, straps, and pockets. Handles and straps have to support a fair bit of weight so you want them to be secure. There’s nothing worse than dealing with a popped zipper, a stretched clasp, or a broken handle, especially if you’re already out for the day.
  5. Smell
    Don't just go with the finish and design of the bag. Make sure you smell the bag before you buy it. This is important! Some leather bags smell very weird of chemicals and dyes, where as high quality leather smells rather divine!
