There is one very, very important thing that you need to know about the Marc by Marc Jacobs Puckered Linda Clutch that you can’t tell merely from viewing it online – the leather is wonderfully, hopelessly, ridiculously soft and supple. I’m a big fan of Marc by Marc Jacobs bags in general, of course, but I have yet to encounter one with leather as amazing as this brand-new line. It’s got the same kind of texture as lambskin; ultra-matte and almost suede-like in its softness. None of the sites that currently carry the line will tell me what kind of leather it is, but for the reasonable price of $258, I doubt it actually IS lambskin. But that is probably why I love the brand so much – they give you great materials in their leather bags without charging exorbitant prices for them. Not only is this clutch inexpensive and super soft, but it’s also a great size at over a foot wide. Some people may not like the embossing, but a little texture never hurt anyone and it’s not super obvious when the bag is carried. Plus, for a great clutch made out of great leather that will hold all of my stuff for less than $300, I’m willing to overlook some branding. Buy through eLuxury for $258.
