Tods Leather Tote Bag

I have a confession: I’ve never owned a Tod’s bag. Don’t get me wrong, the brand makes some absolutely beautiful bags, but I’ve always been more drawn to its shoes, namely the iconic driving loafers. With occasional exception, the bags usually don’t speak to me – that is, until now. I am positively obsessed with this bag, in every way possible. It is stunning, simple, and from the moment I laid my eyes on it, all I wanted was to pet it, own it and carry it.

The soft grain leather with offsetting tonal side panels forms one of the most alluring bags I have seen in months. There is something about the shape of the bag, the color options and the finished product that makes the Tod’s Tote Bag the bag I can not stop wanting needing this Wednesday.


There are an array of colors in supple grain leather, but as I said before, my choice goes to one of the offset tonal versions. The dimensions are large but not overpowering, which makes this bag great to carry for work or day-to-day use. Tod’s never leaves out luxurious touches, and that can be seen on this bag with the detachable padded shoulder strap and entirely smooth suede lining on the interior. The double handle drop is only 3.9″, but this bag is much better suited carried by its long shoulder strap with a 37″ drop. Tod’s, you have finally done it, I am now head over heels in love with this bag and right now it is all I can think about. Price is $1,595 via Tods.

    Tods are great bags! They were my favorite for a long time. They are so very functional (and beautifully made) making them a real pleasure to use. I would always grab for a Tod more than any other bag in my collection. The Neiman store in my city no longer carries them so I am not really buying them any more. We have a store in Waikiki but I never go into Waikiki (the locals really don’t). Megs, you should get this bag, you won’t regret it!

    I have been drooling over this bag since I saw the ad in a magazine last month. It looks like it could be a bag to have forever since it’s such a classic style. Please give a report on the bag if you purchase it!

    Meh… like the Givenchy NIghtingale much better…

    It looks fantastic and luxurious, but I do wonder what it looks like carried with the shoulde strap, and whether it will eventually loose its shape if it is mostly carried on the shoulder.

    Ooh I’ve just spotted the nubuck-like python version on Tod’s website – gorgeous!

    Its way more functional than the Givenchy one! Adjustable long shoulder strap.. how can anyone not appreciate that!..if only more designers include that when making bags. But then again there will be too many perfect bags around!
