Pont Neuf Tote in Black Epi Leather

Here are Long review from Melody's customers.They are a trusted seller on my Recommended Seller List and Jess/Melody are wonderful to work with.


This is the 3rd bag I’ve purchased from Fallin & so far I remain happy w/ the products and overall experience. I stalked this on the real site for a while, but it’s no longer available in the epi leather. Although I have several black purses, every woman needs a black handbag that can work for business as well as casual. I decided to take pictures right away this time because I knew I was going to use this bag immediately. 

First, let me cover how much detail is put into the packaging which may help shed some light on why we pay so much for the s&h w/ this company. The bag was packaged very securely! The exterior packaging was practically mummified in tape, there was no way anything was going to come loose. Also, the shaping of the packaging is always complimentary to the shape of the bag. Once I broke through all the tape, there were supports inside the packaging to keep the bag from shifting. Again, this to keep the integrity of the bags original shape. Then the bag itself was in a thin plastic protective bag to ensure that the leather wasn’t scratched or scraped against the card board packaging. When I removed the exterior plastic, I didn’t smell any strange smells or anything. The handles & hardware were wrapped w/ thin plastic or tissue &tape

The leather feels good, especially on the inside pockets its soft and buttery feeling. There’s a suede lining on the lower part of the outer flaps, and the inner is completely lined with the suede. To my surprise there’s a double pocket in the interior of the bag, one is behind the zipper pocket. This bag, just like my others, looked just like the pictures on the site & just like the pics that Melody sent me prior to shipping.

This is the first Louis I’ve ordered from Fallin so I also wanted to compare the dust bag to an original. The first thing I noticed was the feel. Fallin’s dust bag (upper part of the pic below) is softer to the touch which I actually find more appealing. Theirs is also a little lighter in color. The stitching around the outer edge of theirs has a larger stitch width and may not be as neat in some areas, whereas original Louis has a tighter stitch which will remain consistent and neat all the way around.

There’s also a difference w/ the size of name print. Fallin has a smaller font size. Louis is larger and not placed close to the edge.

One more thing I noticed when putting my original away is that Louis actually puts a tag in the interior of the dust bag as well. I’ve had this particular bag for years & I just noticed it today when taking these pics.

Overall regarding the dust bags, who’s going to notice these things unless they’re able to do a side by side comparison? Most aren’t likely to know the different unless they’re very familiar w/ the brand & detail oriented. Regardless, who’s giving closet tours, & if you did, who’s going to let someone inspect items in their closet that closely? So these differences don’t mean much unless you’re trying to pass something off as authentic.

I’ve been using this bag for about 5 days now & so far I’m very happy & extremely likely to be making another purchase before the year is over.
