If you didn't know who made this bag you'd assume that it was from a maker like Filson, or (vintage)Coach, as it is absolutely wonderful!
The main body of the bag appears to be nubuck--extremely sturdy leather that's yet very soft to the touch. The external reinforcement straps, the carrying handles, the base, and teh grip are all heavy duty leather, and are all top-stitched for durability. The grip is secured by heavy-duty brass snaps which discreetly feature the J. Crew name. It comes complete with a very heavy-duty canvas carrying strap that features both heavy duty brass clasps at each end and a heavy duty brass buckle to adjust the length. The main closure is a heavy-duty YKK zipper that works beautifully fluidly.
The bag's interior is lined in heavy-duty cotton twill, and features a zippered security compartment on one side.
This bag is just starting to break in, with some wonderful grain starting to develop on the main body. The bag has some minor scuffs commensurate with use--but this just add to its character!
It is in VERY Good/Excellent condition. It is sized so as to be large enough for a weekend away, yet manageable enough for everyday use.
The base measures 9" wide, by 20 3/4" long; note that the bag can expand beyond these dimensions as it is, like all duffels, designed to bulge out when packed. It is 9 1/2" high.
Asking just $79, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA!
