I sent Amazon a e-mail asking if they could tell me who makes it.   I'm sure it's not real high on their list of priorities for a response.  In the meantime anyone recognize this bag?  I want badly!!!!!

OMG, seriously, I LOVE this bag.  I am partial to Coach and I was hoping this would compare.  Well, I am in awe.  I have seen Fossil before, actually have a small one.  But this one, the leather is like buttah, it's amazing.  And best of all, everything fits, even my iPad!!!  I want the black for winter and will pay full price from Zappos, that's how much I love it!!
And it doesn't seem that huge considering how much it holds.  The strap can be worn short over your shoulder or long cross body.  It's just perfect!!!

    It appears to be a Fossil Sutter Large Top Zip, which oddly is NOT available at Amazon but can be had from eBags in multiple colors. I'm a little worried that I actually recognized that it was probably a Fossil bag when I looked closely.  :o



    Oh, and it's $138, and discounts/coupons can't be applied to it. There are also a couple smaller versions available, search for "Fossil Sutter" to find them.

    PS - check your local Macy's, they carry Fossil and often have pretty good sales on them.

    Pretty sure that's the smaller cross-body bag, although it apparently is still large enough to hold a Kindle in it's cover.

    I have this bag in purple.  It is a nice bag, but I don't think I would pay full price for it (got it on sale at macys.com for about $75).  In addition to the large outside zip pocket on the front of the purse, there is another of the same size on the back.  I bought the purse assuming my Kindle would fit in the large zip pocket.  I have a K2 with the M-Edge Platform cover.  The width of the pocket is fine, but it is not quite deep enough for my case.  The pocket needs to be about 1/4 inch deeper.  I solved this problem by pulling the stitching out of the bottom of the pocket lining.  So if you are thinking about buying this purse, be aware that your Kindle may not fit in the outside pockets without modifications.

    I don't suppose you have a picture of the purple? I have to admit I'm eyeing it, but the pictures on the web look very pinkish-purple.

    With the shorter K3, it's probably about the right size without modifications.

    Sorry, I don't have a picture of the purple.  In person, I would call the color plum.  It is not as bright as what is shown in the picture and does not seem pinkish at all.  It is more of a somewhat muted medium purple.  It is an untreated leather, so it also darkens a bit over time.

    In case anyone is wondering, I measured the outside pockets and they would accommodate a case up to probably 6"x9" without modification (but it would be a tight fit).  If you pull the stitching out of the bottom of the pocket lining, you could fit a case up to 7"x9" in it.

    I've seen this bag in person at Macy and Carson's.  Fossil makes quality bags.  The leather on this bag is very soft.

    I got it!  Found one on eBay, brand new, yummy green, $72 with free shipping!  And it's the large one that sells for $138, not the smaller one that sells for $98.  Good deal, huh?   

    Should go quite nice with my new graphite Kindle!

    In the Amazon photo, it looks as if the Kindle doesn't really fit into the pocket it's in -- one way to show off the cover since it sticks out.  And this is a K3.

    I like Fossil styles.  I don't have one, but I've browsed in the Fossil store in Times Square (on Broadway).

    Be careful, those of you who are looking for this bag.  There are two sizes in this style.  I found out the skew # of the larger size is ZB2343.  I saw linda's on eBay and it is the larger one but there are a lot there in the smaller size.  Just thought you would want to know.  :)

    I'm getting the K3 with the Amazon cover with the light.

    Yep, I will let you know with pictures even!  Currently I have the K2 with Amazon's cover so if that fits, the K3 should.
    I'll take pics of the K2 as well since I'm sure I'll get my bag before the K3!

    And yes, my bag is the bigger bag so it should fit, if not in the zip pocket, somewhere in the bag!  lol

    zappos.com has it in all 8 colors plus free shipping - usually overnight shipping if you get an order in the 1:00 pm.  I adore Zappos.

    I don't have the DX, but I just measured my bag and the main pocket is about 11" x 11".  The DX is listed as being 10.4" x 7.2".  As long as your case isn't too big, it should just fit.
