    I absolutely love my red Holyrood handbag! Both the color and style are gorgeous, and its quality/craftmanship is top-notch. I bought the smaller size off the shelf, no need for personalization as the lining and double inner pockets were perfectly suited. Simon made an accompanying crossbody/shoulder strap, which allows for more casual wear. Would also like to note that the red is more of a cranberry when seen in-person, not as fire-engine bright as depicted in the above screenshots (more like the Holyrood on ML’s homepage). Anxiously awaiting my 2nd purchase, a bespoke Saddlebag. The weeks are dragging, but this caliber of quality is well worth the wait!
