This is the original Coach Drawstring Soft Flap. When the words, “butter-soft” were associated with handbags, this beauty takes the honors. When you first see and then feel the leather of this rare pristine Coach, you know it is like no other. This early 1980’s handmade original is from the private collection and is mint, no issues, period. From every angle, it is elegant.
This Coach has leather that is marshmallow soft and the Deep Black color shines like Black Glass. In 1980, Coach released their new Lightweight Collection and even though they were called lightweight, the leathers were still the thick and rich. They were given a special treatment resulting in a leather that has that richness that is so comfortable to touch. On the front, this Coach has the full-length pocket with the drawstring and slide.
Pull the shiny leather slide to see a flawless suede interior of the pocket that smells leather rich and is spotless clean. Open the main compartment and there is a single zippered security pocket with the creed and serial numbers: 125-1720 below. The leather "string" is supple, clean, and has no breaks or wear. On the outside, the leather is truly pristine. Not a single scuff or mark anywhere. The strap is clean and has perfect form. All the stitching throughout is intact.
The original hangtag is present on the solid brass chain.
All of the solid brass metalwork gleams with blinding brilliance. The piping shines and is clean. Few of these were made in this style and even more so in this, pristine condition. You will never regret owning this fine Coach.
The dimensions are 10" L x 8 ½ “H x 3" D and the strap is adjustable up to 42" long. Can be carried cross-body.
