Black leather bag
This bag fits the bill for those formal work occasions when I need to bag that I can cycle with on my bag and then show up at an appointment in style.
It is expandable and can carry large files, and all my stuff. When it is not full it flops in half. It has a caramel coloured lining so you can see everything inside. Although no pockets on the outside the inside pockets are well placed and hold my purse, wallet, phone and camera. What sold it for me was the large wide adjustable strap. Too often large shoulder bags do not have a wide enough strap which means that it is painful to carry a full bag on your back. My Brompton bags do not get used because of the thin straps and dark inside lining.
I got the bag in Fenwick department store on New Bond Street in the West End of London. I rarely go to this shop but I was shopping with M who was tracking down a tote bag which is now only sold in Fenwick and I came across this. It is made by a company called Moroccan Bazaar which I had not heard of before. Beautiful.
