When Tano first burst onto the scene I was excited by its crunchy Italian leather accessories with their bright berry colors. However after seeing so many cookie cutter creations I started to tire of the label. So I was thrilled when I spotted Tano doing something new with its Slick Shift Messenger.
This is a real departure for the brand. Its nutty almond color is much more subdued than the tones it typically plays with, and its design much more practical. The crunchy leather we were so familiar with has also been replaced; it's still leather but it doesn't have that quite the same weathered gloss.
I appreciate the Slick Shift's functional design. It's not too big and not too small, so we can easily carry it across our body and fit everything we really need inside. There's a place for all those items too with plenty of interior and exterior pockets.
But its leather is a real disappointment. It's very thin, and has a plastic-like luster. Some customers suggest that it's hard to believe it's leather at all. I wouldn't suggest that Tano is duping us, especially considering the Slick Shift's $198 price tag. However if it had opted for synthetic we'd be no less impressed. Sometimes change isn't always for the better.
