Rated 4 out of 5 by JessicaAsh5 New Favorite Bag!
I loved this bag as soon as I saw it online! Went to my local store to see it and it did not disappoint! The leather is super soft and I love the lining inside. Has great pockets for cell phones, keys, lipstick or whatever I need to be able to grab quickly. The only thing that's weird about it is the little "card holder" on the outside of the bag. It's so bizarre! I would never put my ID or a credit card in there for fear of it accidentally falling out. Maybe a gym badge? I didn't hate that enough to not buy it though - overall a perfect year round staple!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointed Side buttons come undone
I love this bag so much, but unfortunately I won't be able to keep it. The first bag came in and within 10 minutes of having stuff in it the side button snaps had pulled out of the leather. I called and J. Crew overnighted a new one which I just received. Took out of the box and the button snaps were already out of the leather on the second bag. I hate this because it's the perfect size bag, but it's obviously not meant to be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KatieR The Wait Is Over...
I have been using my leather J.Crew tote from 2014 every single day (since it was discontinued). I was not a fan of the "Uptown Tote" since it was considerably smaller, so I skipped picking up that style...
So glad I waited for this one! It has a nice lining, interior pockets, and the quality is amazing. It has more of a sturdy structure than the 2014 leather tote, in other words, it's not floppy. The clasps on the side are great when you need more width in the bag, just unclasp them. There is also a magnetic closure on top. I ordered the black, which has a nice maroon lining, without monogramming in case I wasn't happy with it. But, I love it and can't wait to order another color!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bluesers Light mustard color not as shown
I agree with the first reviewer regarding the quality and leather on this bag - it is well executed and I genuinely like the bag. The only problem is I ordered it in light mustard and unfortunately it does not look like the color shown in the photo. The true color is what is shown in the photo with all the bags together - it skews a lot more orange than shown in the individual picture. I was hoping that the photo with all the bags was the one that was inaccurate, but nope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jcrewfan Best tote out there with organization
Hands down this is the best tote out there right now that provides tons of pockets, making it a great work tote. Outside button pocket is perfect for business cards, the larger outside pocket fits a notepad or tablet, inside there are three open pockets plus a zipper pocket. The quality is pretty good (durable and soft) but the stitching gives it a slightly lower end look. I'll be getting a fun coin purse to accessorize. Thanks J Crew for finally coming out with a bag that can be used for business!
