Unboxing my Burberry Orchard bag

I always had a fascination with Burberry, this quintessential British fashion house which is synonymous to trench coats that it globally popularised. Long before acquiring designer purses I was dreaming about this sartorial check bag with a matching wallet to be a staple in my wardrobe. But somehow it got taken over by Louis Vuitton which made my captivation for Burberry grew even more. So I ended up getting not only one but three check bags. This bag that is featured now is my ultimate Burberry item at the moment… presenting the Orchard in Sartorial house check. I ordered this online in brand-new with tags condition from Reebonz. One day when I came home from work, (hence, I was still in a suit) there it was on the coffee table waiting for me. Good thing I remembered to take a photo before unboxing, well, normally I can’t wait to rip the wrap and untie the ribbon.

Pardon my face shininess (told you i just came home from work hehe)
I like the roomy space where I can put pretty much all my daily essentials including a small umbrella. I like it too that I can either hand-carry or sling it in my shoulder which I don’t think I have a picture. I think I should call it an arm-bag rather than handbag or shoulder bag hehe.

I must have carried this bag three times only since I got it, once to work, to church and to the shops. But it doesn't mean I like this less than the other top brands that I have. It could mean that I treasure this and don't want it get beaten black and blue from all that commuting to work. I thought of taking this on my next trip to the Philippines because it is lightweight and won't hurt my shoulder. But then it is made of cotton twill with leather trim which means it can get stained easily and can't be wiped off unlike full leather bags. Hmmm... what do you think?
