Madewell et Sézane® Leather Tote

Madewell et Sézane® Leather Tote is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour and styling i saw this bag and I had to purchase it. The colour is amazing. I have taken it as my handbag on a short flight and it works perfectly. I had to adjust the straps slightly but an all round great purchase. I think the leather and swede will age nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Stunning Handbag I just opened my delivery box and I can't stop staring at this handbag, it's just so beautiful! I haven't used it yet, but simply by looking at it and feeling the leather, I can tell that the quality is really amazing. It's quite a large/long bag, but I am 6 ft tall, so this won't be bothersome for me. I can't wait to make this my everyday bag.!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A True Find This bag arrived yesterday and it's fabulous. It smells like a saddle from Hermes---wonderful, fine leather---and I just love this bag. It is already pretty slouchy so it will only get better as I use it. Very lightweight too. Sits nicely on my shoulder and can be worn cross body if you let the strap out as far as it will go. So French! Looks very expensive and believe me, I know expensive because I spend way too much on designer bags. This bag is a true find. I am thrilled with this purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't like the shape for me This is a beautiful bag. The colour is amazing and love the suede detailing. My issue was the shape. I'm 5'9" so tall enough to carry this off I think. However, I just didn't like the length of the bag. The short handles are too short to carry over your shoulder which leaves you having to use the longer handle to carry by shoulder. However, it seems to just drag b/c the strap is longish and the bag is very long itself. I also ordered the Dark Cabernet Transport tote at the same time, and that shape was much better. It's a wider but shorter shape, which seems to look more normal and less sloppy IMO.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks fake, feels cheap. I was really looking forward to rocking this bag all winter, but was immediately disappointed as soon as I removed it from the box: 1) The leather felt very cheap - not quality, and like another person speculated, more like bonded leather. 2) The straps were flimsy and cheaply attached, 3) It barely fits as a cross-body, and there's only an option to shorten the straps. 4) The lack of a lining is pretty standard for madewell bags, for but for the price, i expected more. The whole thing felt flimsy, and fake. My husband took one look at it and asked if it was real leather. What a bust.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Problem with handles I really loved the look of this bag and it pained me to return it. However, as others have mentioned the handles and strap are not functional. The crossbody strap is way too short to use other than over one shoulder and the handles cannot fit comfortably on the arm. If you have heavier things to carry around its not practical. The other clincher was that there is no shape to the bag. When you put items in it the bag doesn't hold up, rather it just collapses around the items - if that makes sense.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very disappointed I was totally in love with this bag when I saw it online, but when it arrived I was sorely disappointed. The handles can't be worn comfortably over the shoulder, and the cross-body strap is laughably short. The leather quality was fine but had a one-tone faux leather look to it. The suede detailing is also only on one side. I immediately returned it, and my trust in the quality of Madewell products has waned somewhat.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cute design, not quality leather I was so excited to see this bag come out and immediately ordered it online. Upon arrival, I was disappointed. The leather on this tote was not a high quality leather. The leather is bonded (as it is on the Transport tote too) but it felt very flimsy. I think a bag of this size has to have a little more substance to keep it's shape. I was not sure that the quality of the leather was going to age nicely. I was also not a fan of how the handles are just long enough to look awkward when the bag is being carried by the shoulder strap. The overall design of the bag is very cute and I was planning on carrying it by the handles and not on the shoulder but I wish the leather was nicer. I purchased the other Madewell et Sezane satchel from last season and have been very pleased with it. I think Madewell can do better with the quality of the leather for what they are asking for the bag. Better try next time.
