Restoration: Vintage Coach Carrier British Tan

I LOVE this bag! Always felt the carriers were too big for me at 5'2"but I'll put my big girl pants on and wear this one proudly! Someone obviously sent it to Coach for a tune up and they replaced the turn locks, handle, and possibly the buckles. Being a perfectionist and a purist. .. I'm getting twitches leaving the new stuff on! I'll leave the new handle and buckles but the turn locks gotta go!

Update...COMPLETE and LOVELY!!!

  • Removed all the replaced hardware and changed to original. 
  • Soaked and wet brushed her in baby shampoo
  • Stuffed, shaped and dried
  • Used Montana oil...my go to
  • Finished with Black Rocks....voila!



Better than ever!!!

Before...
Before turnlocks off...handle throws off the balance and lines of the bag 
but not changing it at this point.
Nice hardware...for a  2000's bag...not an NYC!
