Factory chainlink suede envelope purse (12653, $78) –
Currently not online on J Crew Factory. Thanks, Mel, for letting me know there were navigation issues on the site.
This color is cabernet (CAB). It also comes in black. Standard envelope clutch fare. The silhouette is called the invitation clutch on the retail side.
The suede isn’t the best in the world. I have the retail one in black and the suede has more nap to it. The suede on the factory version is flatter. You could probably fluff it up a little with a suede brush. Always protect your leather goods w/spray. Most of my protectants are from the Kiwi line.
Interior pocket. No zip. I’m not a big color of the chain on this one. It’s good that it mostly blends in, but it was a little dull looking. It’s almost like it’s from the hardware store and not originally intended for the handbag.
