15 The Ultimate Guide To Buying Leather Bags! Joy William August 14, 2015 Online Shopping Finding the perfect leather bag for you can be a strenuous process. Reason being, leather bags (regardless of what kind) carry a large price tag. Fortunately, this hefty price tag also buys you some of the highest quality material that can be used on Duffle bags, messenger bags, and even suitcases. Some people will make the mistake of doing very little due diligence on which bag is correct for them, and will end up with a leather bag that does not accommodate their needs whatsoever. So with this guide, hopefully you can avoid making this mistake, and end up with a bag that will be a perfect fit for your needs, while lasting you a lifetime. The first thing you need to remember is… It’s not all about price. Yes, if you want a quality leather bag, you will have to “pay a little more”. You can go ahead and buy a discount leather bag, but don’t run back to me saying “why did this bag break”. In most cases you have to pay for quality, so keep that in mind. I recently bought a leather computer bag from http://boconi.com/collections/computer-bags it wasn’t the cheapest bag in the world, but I’m ok with that. As long as this bag lasts me a longtime, I will feel totally comfortable with my decision to buy it (no buyers remorse). What is the quality of the leather? Again, price should help you determine this as well. For example, if the leather bag you are looking to purchase is only thirty dollars, the bag is most likely “pleather” (fake leather). But, if you purchase a leather bag from a site like Boconi for three to four hundred dollars, you can be sure the quality of the bag will be as high as it can possibly be. And finally, always make sure to “vet” the company you’re doing business with and purchasing the bag from. For example, let’s say you buy a leather bag from a local supplier in your area. After a couple days of use the strap breaks off the bag, you take the bag into be repaired and they tell you, “there’s nothing we can do about that!”. You have not done your vetting properly. To avoid being in this situation, you need to ask questions. For instance, “what is your repair policy?”, or “Do you guys offer a money back guarantee if I’m not satisfied?”. If you believe the retailer gives an honest answer to both these questions, go ahead and buy the bag. There’s nothing better than buying something of quality that will help you for a long time to come. A leather bag of any type can help make your life and the lives of others around you better. That might seem dramatic, but if you really think about it.. its not! For example, how many times has your wife asked you to put something in your bag while traveling? If she’s anything like mine.. She has done this A LOT. so, really, a good bag saves everyone a lot of trouble.
