Remember when I wrote about the Very Vintage Scaramanga shop the other week? Well, the lovely people at Scaramanga hearing that it’s my birthday, decided to gift me a bag! How nice is that? They called me a brand ambassador, which sounds very strange (I associate that with big time bloggers), but I suppose is true! I really think Scaramanga are great, the product are great looking, ethical and the company is local to me, and happy to tell anyone that cares to listen about it!
Anyway, you might remember, I was looking for a bigger size of rounded saddle bag, but in the absence of that I went for this one, the vintage leather saddle bag. The leather is the distressed vintage type, unlike my other one which is the plain tan. I slathered it in leather protecting wax which made it a bit shinier and darkened it a shade.
It actually comes under the men’s section, and it’s really more of a travel bag. It’s pretty massive and the strap is ridiculously long! You can see it in the official photos, even on the model it sits really low. On me it was literally down to my knees. But I just took it to the cobblers and they made some new holes further up in the strap and now it sits just right, and I’ve been using it as a handbag loads. It’s so good to have just the one buckle, though I do have to be careful not to fill it full or it gets very heavy, as I noticed to my peril in Copenhagen where these photos were taken.
