Rated 5 out of 5 by devotee You won't regret it!
I have owned the SAME Basic Bag since the late '70s. Hard to believe but it's finally wearing out. How many bags are as stylish today as they were 30 plus years ago? None that I'm aware of, except, of course, this bag. Granted it's small, but carries all I need and I get emotional just thinking about throwing it out. Well, that may be a tad dramatic, but you know what I mean. You won't regret the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Butterfly7777 Back to Classic Basics
Classic Basic Bag My mother bought this bag for me in 1975. Back then it came in 2 sizes, this one and a smaller one. I have both and still use both of them. I never used any polish or product on them so I let them wear naturally and the leather looks like an old saddle with the exception of the lip along the top which stayed the original color. So you can see what beautiful leather it was and then how beautifully it has worn. Since then I have a Coach Wallet and Wristlet so when I was shopping for a black leather back, I wanted one that both could fit into as well as my Knidle tablet. This IS THE BAG! Because of its shape the tablet fits perfectly along with everything else. I love all the pouchy shapes but this basic bag works everywhere and brown and black go with everything. I didn't think anyone would know it was Coach but I didn't care. Surprisingly, many woman comment on it and tell me they had the same bag and gave it away and really regret it. I will never give it away! All of my Coach bags will go to my daughter when I'm gone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sweetteamom Favorite Bag
This was my first Coach purse! I received a black Basic Bag as a college graduation gift in 1989 and it was the only purse I carried for years. Fast forward to today - many Coach bags later, it remains one of my all-time favorites. Since then I have always carried Coach purses. The leather really does get better with age. I am so excited to see the familiar styles of the classic collection again!
