If only all internet shopping was as pleasurable as this! I knew exactly what I wanted.A vintage brown leather satchel large enough for my Macbook and other stuff for work and one that could be used for going out shopping. I really wanted a vintage leather satchel with lots of character.One that looks as if it had been used. Although I found Scaramanga's leather bags, I did look elsewhere, I really wanted to see and feel the bag, but most of what I saw in the shops were too small and really satchel styled handbags, none had a vintage leather feel! A few other online satchel stores had some great coloured ones they were very new looking (not too surprising for new satchels I know!!)So I went ahead and ordered a small Overlander satchel. The bag arrived in two days and opened the package to find it neatly tucked inside its own beautiful dust bag, complete with care instructions. It is exactly what I exptected, with perfect vintage / weathered look. So I know it is truly a unique piece. There are not too many pockets and compartments, a large main compartment and a large front pocket and several zipped compartments for valuables and mobiles/i-pod. Aside from the item itself, ive been extremely impressed with Scaramanga's customer service. They seemed so friendly and efficient. They sent me updates at each stage:ordering,confirmed payment and finally an e mail telling me it had been despatched and would be with me in 1-2 days. I have already had people asking where I got it! A great example of internet shopping working well. My only wish would be that their shop was closer so I could have a look at their wonderful vintage furniture.
