Ralph Lauren Chatsworth Tote | Brown Leather Drawstring Handbag

Posted on: Jun 13

Ralph Lauren Chatsworth ToteRalph Lauren shows us that drawstrings can work for buttoned up bags too with the Chatsworth tote.

In most ways this is a very traditional tote, from the top of its rolled handles to the bottom of its reinforced corners. That classic base makes the Chatsworth a great go-anywhere bag, the kind of accessory that would look smart in the office and right at home at dinner afterwards. The drawstring brings things back into the 21st century though. I wouldn't expect to see such a relaxed clasp on such a sophisticated bag, but as it's a little hidden I think it works well.

I just wonder whether the drawstring makes a big enough impression to justify its inconvenience. These kinds of clasps are notoriously awkward to handle, especially when your cell phone is ringing inside! They're also not as secure as a zipper, so I'd store anything of value in the interior zip pocket.

At $179 the Chatsworth is affordable for its quality, but I'm starting to wonder whether it's more trouble than it's worth.
