Too bad this bag is made from the hide of a suffering slaughtered cow. Great style. How about using a different natural fabric that does not require torture and murder? What about hemp? Go vegan, and do not participate in this butchery of innocents.

I purchased this bag in black and looks every bit as awesome in person as it does online. Leather is buttery soft. The bag is heavy(ish) as other reviews state, but not enough to be an issue. Unfortunatly, I ended up returning it due to the size - it's just too large for my taste. As awesome as it is, I knew I wouldn't carry it. It actually hurt me to send this purse back.

This bag is gorgeous. It is classic. It will always be in style. The quality is amazing. It is not as heavy as some of the reviews say it is. It is comfortable to carry. I love this bag.

I am a fan of big handbags and quality leather. I know Frye makes nothing but the best as I've worn their boots. The grey/tannish color was a new try for me as I usually go for the brown tones. It's beautiful. The bag is soft, somewhat light considering how big it is and just great all around. The biggest problem I found was that it doesn't have a cell phone holder which now days is not good. I had to buy a clip on case and attach to the bag. Other than that it's perfect.

This bag smells delicious! Yeah, I find it amusing that that's my first comment, but that real rich wholesome leather smell and feel are so tantalizing to my senses that even though it has some issues, there was no way I could give this back. The leather is so thick & robust it feels wonderful. So soft & supple, yet very sturdy & strong. Even the lining is not a flimsy material. It feels like a very durable canvas sort, but soft & smooth to the touch. The style you can see so no need to go into detail on that but it is beautiful in person; & while it's very on trend & even has an edge to it, it is still a very classic style. It is large no doubt about that so be ready for it to be even bigger than it appears, but personally I love that. For practical reasons. For appearance sake, it feels a little oversized but don't care. I'm 5'4" so for sure an issue, but if you're taller and bigger, it wouldn't even be an issue. Another issue is that it could use more pockets, as others have mentioned. It is bothersome that in a bag of this size, there are no demarcations or compartments, but perhaps that is a pro rather than a con for some people. For me, there could never be too many zippers since I like to keep things really organized. I have little zippered pouches for specified items. Keys in one. Makeup in another etc. cell phone goes in the zipper although there should be a zipper on the outside for car keys. I don't know why they didn't do this for a bag that was obviously made to be used for practical everyday use. (Had to take off 1 star for style due to that, although the style in general deserves 5 stars.) Having said all that, I still adore this bag & couldn't resist buying it in two colors. Black & tan. Tan is as depicted online. I did see the maple too & it is a stunningly beautiful color in a brownish/auburnish sort of way. Wish could've kept it & would buy the grey as well but I never bought expensive bags before so it was already a splurge. Fits well on the shoulder & I can never stop touching this bag with my fingers because this leather is so mesmerizing. Also, shopping at Zappos is always the best. Their service & their reps are unbeatable & inimitable! Thank you!

LOVE this bag. It is beautiful! It's quite large, though I've managed to fill it up! I have a small child and also carry a diaper bag. Its a little much to carry both, so I'm often switching out my wallet. I searched online for a while before finding this one. If you are looking for a less expensive option, I also liked this one: http://www.zappos.com/the-sak-indio-large-tote-metallic-straw-1?zlfid=191&ref=pd_sims_p_ab_1

I love this bag! It doesn't look overstuffed even with the iPad and Kindle and my regular items. Wish it had a phone pocket, though. A high quality leather and durable zipper should make this bag last a lifetime. Thanks for great service, again Zappos!

This purse is stunning! I was in a waiting room, when a lady commented on my purse. After additional conversation and a thorough look at my purse, I found myself helping her locate the purse, on Zappos of course, to purchase.

I love this bag. It is a great size and beautiful leather. I get compliments on this bag all of the time. The purse has buttons on the side and they never stay connected so the magnets or snaps should be much stronger. But that does not take away that much from it. It is a super bag!

I cannot imagine life without this bag! Yes, as other reviewers have mentioned, it's a little heavy and I really wish there were a couple more interior pockets but this is a fabulous bag.

This is a lovely, luxurious bag. It's trendy, yet classic, with the overall shape and the stud details. I use it as a 'book bag' for school, rather than a purse because it is so large. This bag is pricey, but when you see it you will be pleased. It smells expensive too, because the leather is high-quality. This is my first Frye bag purchase and I am already looking on Zappos for others.

Beautiful bag! Have received a ton of compliments on it & the quality is great. The only downfall is the bag is heavy. Even with minimal things inside it's still heavy.

I did my first order with Zappos.com. Zappos had the best selection of Frye bags in a variety of prices. Zappos customer service is excellent. The Frye Vintage Stud Shoulder Bag was shipped and arrived on schedule in perfect condition. I recommend Zappos without any reservations. If you have questions, call customer service! They will answer your questions quickly and cheerfully!

This bag in the tan pebbled leather is so beautiful. I have the same bag in Maple in the smoother leather version. It's big and it holds a lot. Very stylish and sits on the shoulder just fine. If you're five feet tall this bag might carry you. For me at 5'7" it's just fine. Zappos is the absolute best place to shop. They care about making you happy and getting you what you want. Fast, free shipping, free returns. Heaven.

This is a gorgeous bag and I love the way it looks. But, like the other reviews I read, it is heavy and it definitely needs more pockets, but I do use it primarily because of the way it looks. It's not the most practical bag, but it's very durable and the quality is excellent.

Very nice bag, beautiful craftsmanship. I returned because it felt little too heavy on my shoulder for everyday use. If you don't mind the weight - great bag.

The bag is extremely well made; good leather, solid zipper and one inside zipper pocket. Very roomy; can fit a laptop in it with room for lots of "stuff." A bit pricey but I think it will last forever. I wish it had one outside pocket but overall very satisfied.

I got exactly what I ordered, and as usual Zappos hit it out of the park. So I got exactly what I ordered, and it's a beautiful bag, but it does not fit my needs completely (I am very picky about handbags).

I so wanted to love this bag. It's gorgeous on the outside and the leather is soft and high quality...but seriously? Only one zipper pocket on the inside? I'm apparently a "pocket" girl, as my current bag has a big zipper area down the middle of my bag, a zipper pocket on one side (inside) and two cell phone-esque pockets on the other side. I tried for days to imagine a system that would let me conveniently grab my lip gloss or a nail file! In the end, I knew I wouldn't be happy with this bag. It's going back.

I own this purse in the vintage black color and love it. I was very disappointed to recieve the vintage brown color with one of the shoulder straps completely unattached! Kind of crazy to find a defect as extreme as this for the price.
