Lovely, well-made, classic bag
I got this bag for my birthday and am extremely pleased with it. Quality leather, classic-looking / nicely untrendy without being boring. Obviously very well made. It's a good size for everyday use; I was worried about it being small but it's maybe even on the big side. Easily fits book, wallet, two pairs of glasses, cell, with lots of room for assorted purse detritus. While I would buy it again in a second, I'm giving it four stars because it's not quite perfect -- the pale canvas (?) lining will get dirty quite quickly (I've already got lip gloss and pen on it). I wish the lining was a darker colour or a pattern. And I also found the cross-body strap, while perfectly functional, a little thinner and not quite as comfortable (but by no means uncomfortable) as I'd like. But, overall, an excellent purchase.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Great basic
I'm a size 2/26 waist who doesn't like clothing to be overly tight and I found the small a perfect fit. This is a wonderful basic that is casual yet could probably be styled with a skirt to elevated it over a typical sweatshirt. The neck hole is nicely small, as opposed to my previous AA sweatshirt which slid off my shoulder constantly (this was a big reason for the upgrade). It's warmer than a long-sleeved tee, but not so hot you'd feel uncomfortable in a typically overheated office. I'll definitely wear it to work (although I do work in a very casual office). I always hesitate at the price of T by Alexander Wang items, and while I still found this expensive, it's much nicer than a regular sweatshirt, and is definitely something I will get a great deal of wear out of. The detailing especially is lovely.
