I love a great doctor’s bag as much as anyone and this darling Marc by Marc Jacobs Preppy Leather Tote has lots of great appeal going for it! I don’t know what I love move the cute rolled leather handles with the 4″ drop or the softly-rounded, boxy shape.
The dimension of this bag are 9″ x 12″ x 7.5″. It’s close to being as deep as it is tall. This creates a little different proportion than we are used to seeing. It’s a bit chubby, but that’s it’s appeal. The softly rounded corners keep it from feeling to rigid and proper. This allows it to have a bit more casual appearance.
Luscious black leather is subtly accented with gold rivets and Marc by Marc Jacobs block printed logo. The magnetic patch pockets on the front and the back are one of my favorite features. I love that you can put your key and cell in the back pocket easily and they remain accessible. No fumbling around!
The interior is roomy and features a fun brown and cream ikat floral print. There’s a zip pocket and two patch pockets as well. Like most of today’s satchels, there’s a detachable and adjustable shoulder strap with a 20″ drop.
The most prominent feature is a large leather luggage tag on the front that is detachable. I’m not sure I love this aspect, so I would probably take it off and attach it to one of the hooks on the side of the bag. But that’s just me. For $458 this bag has a great deal of style at a reasonable price.
