Q & As

Rated 2.3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not hard wearing I'm looking for another laptop bag after using this one for two years. I travel a great deal, mainly on aircraft and within a very short while the edging wore through. What makes this worse is that it comes through white, which on a black bag really shows. Everything else is absolutely fine. One of the zips has now also broken, but most probably due to me overfilling it with files and laptop. The bag is not cheap and being leather should last more than two years. 22 November 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovely Quality I recently purchased the Detroit Leather Case. My first impressions are this is a lovely, well made leather case. The leather is very soft and good quality. I hope I am not let down by the build quality the other buyers have described. 10 June 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointing for JL I was given this bag at Christmas 2012 by my son. By end of March, like the other reviewers experience, the beading had become noticeably worn and unsightly. I brought it back to my local John Lewis and was given a refund. I certainly can't complain about the customer service response which was excellent as expected from John Lewis; however it was disappointing that given the price and the John Lewis branding this product was so poor . 06 April 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointing I bought this product under a year ago and I have been very pleased with it but just lately the beading around the edges has become worn and unsightly. I thought the case would have kept its looks a bit longer. 05 July 2012
