I found the price tag. Lo and behold, SGD$699.
Our jaws dropped.
Reluctantly, she put it back on the shelves and we went on looking for other bags. That tote bag she saw already set a benchmark and she couldn't find another bag that she liked.
We went back to Timberland to see it again. This time we asked the sales assistant for the price, to see if there's any discounts.
VOILA! A whooping 50% off!!! That makes it slightly cheaper than $350! (Upon searching online, this discontinued model was selling at about $100 cheaper in UK, I think. But saving $100 for uncertainties like possible O.O.S etc wasn't worth it. So, we are still happy with the purchase)
It is seldom that the missus like such big leather bag. There must be something about it that she like it so much. Here are the pics :
Handles made of Suede leather
My fav part; Somehow I just like how they design this badge.
Another view from the other side
Made in Italy!
Nice compartments inside that will be helpful in finding small items like pens in this huge tote bag
Another zipper compartment
Price before discount.
I just love the smell of genuine leather!
Aniline leather... Yummy...
The overall feel was no doubt top notch! Very sturdy and tough looking. We shall see how it fares in our coming trip!
