Rated 4 out of 5 by lunamama Elegant Bag, A Few Design Flaws I love the elegance and sophistication of this bag. However, after using it daily for about a month, I've discovered a few things I wish would have been designed differently. For one, the long carry strap is attached to the hardware at the handles, meaning the strap crosses the bag diagonally. This causes the bag to splay open and not hang properly from the shoulder. If only they'd installed the strap hardware right at the center seam, this wouldn't happen. Second, I wish that the bag was about 1" wider to better accommodate files and folders. As it is, the two open compartments are just barely wide enough to accommodate a single file folder and maybe a magazine, but not much else. Finally, this bag is HEAVY. I think if it had been simplified with two zipper compartments and a single center open compartment, that would be better. Three zipper compartments add too much to the weight of the bag without being especially useful. May 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by KLady My New Constant Companion I must admit that I have a little problem when it comes to designer handbags. Every time I swear I am not going to purchase another one, a beauty like the Borough comes along. I looked at this bag online almost daily and visited it in my local Coach store for several weekends before finally taking the plunge. I bought the Medium Borough in Chambray Pebbled Leather as a birthday present to myself. This bag has now become my constant companion - I LOVE it! The color is so beautiful and really stands out against my more neutral wardrobe. The leather is supple but the bag has structure too which I love. The compartments are brilliant - I keep my wallet in the middle zip and items I need to grab quickly (such as keys, cell phone and lip gloss) in the open compartments. I like the fact that when I am feeling fancy, I can carry it by the straps in the crook of my arm. However, when I'm in "Mom-mode" I can sling it over my shoulder using the strap. All of my items are easily accessible either way I carry it. Finally, I just love the simple, sophisticated design of this bag - it makes me feel like a million bucks when I'm carrying it - even if I'm just making a trip to the grocery store. I feel that the Borough is worth every penny because I know it's a bag I will carry for years. It's been on my arm for almost a month and I haven't even looked at another handbag - that's saying something for an "addict" like me:) April 22, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by ZOpinion Definitely not what I expected... I did a bit of research before purchasing this bag. The cost and functionality were both considerations for me. I initially purchased the 2 tone in polished leather. I was so excited to leave the store and get home to transfer my items into my new bag. As soon as I transferred everything over, my excitement faded. I noticed, as I was transferring stuff, that the quality of the material inside the bag(pocket dividers) was not to my liking. I expected something a bit more. After getting all of my items into this new bag, I lifted the bag to see how it would "carry" for me. The shoulder strap made the purse much longer than I cared for so I intended to carry the bag on my arm. The straps are tight to the bag itself so when I would slide the handles over my hand it was not a comfortable carry. I have kids and often I have several items i am hanging on to at once. The look of the bag on the shelf is awesome. It is very sleek and pretty. But the functionality and quality of the inside material of the bag were definitely huge drawbacks for me. I ultimately returned the bag and go a Phoebe, Bleeker Preston (in a beautiful sea foam green color, perfect for spring and year roud) and the wallet to match the Bleeker Preston bag. Both of these last 2 purchases were well worth my time and money. I have gotten tons of compliments from the Bleeker Preston and it carries very well. More of a quality that I would expect from Coach compared to the Borough. April 16, 2014
Now and then a perfect bag comes along—simple, chic and sophisticated. Introducing the Borough Bag, a luxuriously versatile silhouette in richly pebbled leather with the elegant ease of the city whose five boroughs inspired its name. With three expandable zip-top compartments, it has room for everything in its elegantly lined interior. Metallic piping on the inside pockets and understated foil branding echo the richness of the plating on its custom hardware.
