Earthkeepers Hookset Tote Bag

Again at Timberland, the missus saw this Tote Bag and fell in love with it too! She was so happy to finally a big and sturdy looking bag that she can bring to Europe. I love it too cos its LEATHER! The texture of it is a little rough and great to touch. As she was happily checking the bag, reality hit me. A bag this size, with all made of good quality leather, it sure ain't gonna be cheap. 

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 :

Overall look

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!
