Coach Madison Gathered Leather Wallet | Black Accordion Style Zip Purse

Posted on: Dec 12

Coach Madison Leather WalletCoach might be one of America's most enduring brands, but its accessories haven't always been to my taste. I found its earliest signature printed purses dull, and much of its youthful Poppy line too vibrant to find a place in my wardrobe. So I'm happy to see the label's found some middle ground with its Madison Gathered Leather Wallet.

Black leather is timeless but also a bit pedestrian, so I'm thrilled to see Coach jazzing it up a little. The intricate pleating creates a hypnotic wave effect which is just so striking. It's a shame the golden Coach logo has to break into the design, but at least it's small.

It really seems a tragedy to keep such a head-turning purse tucked away in a larger tote, but I'm not sure its accordion style interior lends itself to use as a clutch. It's a space that really puts finances first, with twelve credit card slots, four open pouches for paper money and receipts, and a zippered compartment for coins. If that's all you need on an evening out you're set, but most of us will probably want space for a cell phone, keys, and cosmetics. And like most wallets there also isn't a drop-in chain. Perhaps it's time to nix the notion of it serving double duty.

It's a shame because this really is the kind of purse you'll want to show off, especially at a not so cheap $248. I could justify that hefty price for clutch with the same finish, but on a wallet I'm just not sure.
