American West Crossroads Shoulder Bag | Modern Studded Faux Leather Handbag

Posted on: Oct 27

American West Crossroads Shoulder BagAmerican West takes a walk on the wild side with this modern Crossroads shoulder bag.

For a while I wasn't sure it was created by that American West. This shoulder bag is a world away from the hand-tooled countrified leather accessories the label ordinarily creates. The tooling is gone and so is the leather, traded in for a much more fashion forward, budget-friendly approach.

While the Crossroads doesn't have the quality of American West's usual fare I actually like it better. The diamond pyramid studs really pop against the black leatherette. They cut a contemporary figure as they dart this way and that in diagonal lines across the shoulder bag's surface. Equally striking is the contrast stitching which mimics the metal hardware.

By using synthetic rather than real leather American West has kept the cost down, but it's also sacrificed longevity. This shoulder bag doesn't come with American West's lifetime guarantee, which is very telling. However while it does last we'll love the serviceable mid-sized interior, grab and go strap, and plethora of pockets.

Personally for a measly $69 I don't mind sacrificing substance for style. If your budget is tighter you may disagree, but I appreciate American West's unexpectedly fashion forward approach here.
