I really like this bag. I like the shape and size and the magnetic flap and strap length and the leather and color. So what *don't* I like? First let me explain that I have other Leatherology projects, including a vertical tote and a zippered pouch. My single complaint is about hardware -- all of the zippers are rough (although durable) and nick my nails regularly. On the Addison, the studs that adjust the strap length are rough on the backside. I have fixed this problem by applying three coats of clear nail polish to the back surface. This smoothed them out sufficiently. I know from experience that ill-thought-out hardware on a crossbody bag can snag sweaters and other knits. This is why I jettisoned my previous (Coach) crossbody. However, the bag is beautiful and perfect in every other way and the nail polish was a quick fix.
I have been a fan of Leatherology for years. One of my favorite pieces is the Addison Crossbody purse.
The leather is soft and gently pebbled,the size is perfect for carrying essentials anywhere, be it super casual or an evening out. I own three colors and I receive compliments every season! Five *****
Maintained high standard
Love the crossbody purse! In the past, I have ordered leather Ipad covers from this company and have been so impressed with the quality and durability. I am happy to say that Leatherology is maintaining its high standard! I love the size, convenience, quality of this purse! I am so very pleased! I will most definitely order from this company again. Thank you for giving us options of exceptional places to shop instead of the run of the mill chain stores.
This crossbody bag is the perfect size. I also bought the matching slim laptop bag & tassels. I am thrilled! In the past I have been quite loyal to Coach but they just didn't meet my needs. And, this cross body bag is about 25% of Coach pricing!
I am a repeat Leatherology customer & I love their products and quality. However, if they had FREE SHIPPING I would purchase more and more often too.
Wish you would also make this in a slightly larger size as with the pocket on the outside it would be perfect for traveling.
Love the bag. Has plenty of room for a crossover bag. Like this bag because your hands free. The leather is great too.
I purchased 9 of these personalized crossbody bags as Christmas gifts and each one of them seemed to be a big hit. Both the black and cognac colored leather was very supple, and were liked equally. The bags are of fine quality construction. It is a great size to use in the evening. My girlfriend showed me that it even fit her small umbrella. The nice looking box that your items arrive in, makes one look forward to what's inside!
Addison Crossbody Purse
This purse is the second Leatherology item I've bought for my wife. (Also a leather wallet). After I placed the order, I discovered a mistake in the initials that I wanted. Sent a message that was picked up immediately by Leatherology and the mistake was corrected before shipment. The workmanship of this purse was the same extremely high quality as with the wallet. The design, stitching, material, everything, absolutely everything about this purse is first class! Even the box that it came in. No wonder this company is successful. They haven't heard the last of me. I'll be a repeat customer.

Such soft beautiful leather, and the absolute top quality. Just wish it were literally twice this size! But this one is PERFECT for evenings out!
