“I bought the medium leather satchel bag as birthday...”

Written on: 01/10/2009

I bought the medium leather satchel bag as birthday present to myself. I had been looking for ages for a retro school satchel type bag that would be big enough to hold my 12' laptop. This fitted the bill exactly, room for the laptop, my other bits and pieces and looks the business too. It gets daily use to and from work and looks better and better with age. There are so many leather satchels to choose from it took three days to pick the right bag. The description beats most and the reviews from… Read Full Review

“After reading so many positive reviews about...”

Written on: 01/05/2009 by alangton (1 review written)

After reading so many positive reviews about Scaramanga Direct, I went ahead and ordered my bag. However, nearly two weeks later I have received nothing and had no response to the 2 emails I have sent about my order. As with another reviewer on this site - they have taken my money but I have received nothing. I am feeling anxious… Read Full Review

Scaramanga's respose. We do not appear to have received your e-mails. They may have been filtered into our spam mail box. Our apologies if this is the case. We do not have any outstanding orders for April and only one for May. The order for May is a custom order and the customer is fully aware of the expected time for delivery of their order. We aim to despatch orders he same day or the next working day. Should a bag be out of stock there is a clear notice on our website informing customers when our new stock will arrive and when their bag will be despatched. The review left by another customer was as a result of miscommuncation. His bag was sent to him the next working day after we contacted him. He has since attempted to edit his initial review - admitting he had rushed to judge us without giving us adequate time to respond to his e-mail. He has been unable to change the initial review. However, he has left a comment that he received his bag and would happily buy from Scaramanga again. If your order has still not arrived Please contact us on +44 1337 868 491 and we will try as hard as possible to resolve the problem. Please update your review if your bag has arrived.

“I bought a Medium Wide Leather Messenger Bag from...”

Written on: 23/04/2009 by jimmyjim (1 review written)

I bought a Medium Wide Leather Messenger Bag from Scaramanga.
Price: £52
This bag is suits all occasions for me - perfect for carting a MacBook Pro (I'd recommend a protective sleeve - as there is no additional padding) to and from work without making it obvious. Great as an overnight bag or going to the gym and also really handy for carrying my camera kit around in when I'm out and about. I have had so many people asking where the bag is from. The quality of the bag and leather is superb… Read Full Review

“I have now bought two leather bags from Scaramanga....”

Written on: 02/04/2009 by SammyF (1 review written)

I have now bought two leather bags from Scaramanga. The first, a present for a friend, was a wonderful vintage leather satchel. It arrived the following day in perfect condition. The quality of the bag is excellent and my freind loved it. The second bag was for me! Again another leather satchel. I was really touched to receive an additional notebook for being a returning customer, which will made for a thoughtful extra. All in all it is the guys at Scaramanga have excellent taste and take great… Read Full Review

Ordered/paid on December third; website still shows "processing" as of December 12th. Emails have gone unaswered. I have no idea what the delay is or why it hasn't been shipped. They have my money; I have nothing. I will update this review when/if my leather bag arrives… Read Full Review

I have tried to update this post several times, however; this site refuses to allow me to login. I keep getting "invalid password" when I try and when I click the "forgot password" link and put in my email address I get ""No registration was found for the email "___ @___.com" Please check your spelling."" I'm not sure how to fix this. Scaramanga did respond to my emails (after I made this post, however; I don't feel it was because of this post), I did receive the bag (It was delayed due to miscomunication and an overzealous email filter) and the bag is very nice.
<br/>My only disapointment with the bag is:
<br/>1. The inside lining is rough and I'm afraid it might scratch my laptop
<br/>2. There is no good place to store the charger (all the pockets place the charger in a position where it may damage the laptop; there should be something so the charger can be placed next to and not on top of or under the laptop).
<br/>
<br/>These "disapointments are only suggestions. The bag is as described and is very well made.

<br/>Thank you.

This is my second attemp to update this review. I am jbarboni, however; I can not log-in I continue to get a password error and any attempt to retrieve my password fails. I did receive the bag and it is very well made. scaramanga was prompt and patient in replying to many emails as we tracked it to the US. I will definately purchase from them again and have recommended them to friends.

Scaramanga's response to jbarboni's review.
<br/>The review was written on 12th Dec - the same day as the first e-mail we received and does not take account of any activity since.
<br/>We responded to his first e-mail sent on at 9.30pm Fri 12th Dec the next day, to inform him that we had tried unsuccessfully to contact him regarding his order. After a succession of e-mail that day we sent his order the next working day. We upgraded the delivery to a priority service (at no extra charge) to make up for lost time and kept him full informed of the progress of his order.
<br/>He has now received the bag and adds 'the bag is as described and is very well made'.
<br/>He has informed us that he has tried unsuccessfully to edit and update his review to reflect the current situation.

They had exactly what I was after a vintage looking leather messenger bag / man bag. I have yet to see it sold by anybody else.
It arrived two days after ordering and they let me know it had been sent out… Read Full Review

“Scaramanga have a wide range of what seemed like...”

Written on: 06/07/2007 by jeff1001 (1 review written)

Scaramanga have a wide range of what seemed like handmade products: leather notebook, leather bags, old wooden boxes and lots of different gifts.
I was after a casual leather messenger bag/man bag that I could use for work and for going out or travelling.
After searching on Google I came across Scaramanga at www.scaramangadirect.co.uk.
They had quite a few styles and lots of sizes.
The large pictures showing the bags were clear and show the sizes compared to each other and how they would look… Read Full Review
