Frye Deborah Shoulder Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

I have been looking for a stylish tote bag for a while. I was able to get the Frye boots called Deborah on sale and when I saw this bag, I knew it was meant to be mine. Very roomy and easy to use and find your stuff. It has a very distressed leather surface with wonderful mini-studs.

Negative Reviews:

This was a bag I too had looked at and wish-listed for awhile. Loved the crackled leather and of course multi-toned grommets on the front. Design-wise my immediate dislikes were the lack of adequate closure. The center magnets are on tabs that must be aligned perfectly, don't just pull together and won't stay closed if the bag is half-full or more. The side snaps also don't stay closed well. The second issue I had was immediately there were flakes of the crackled leather everywhere (dust bag, then kitchen chair where I leave my purse and finally on my iPhone screen, and due to the antiscratch film there, they need to be picked off with my nail). I said whatever to these annoyances and just started to carry the bag immediately! It's extremely spacious, but does get heavy quickly. Well I'm ultimately writing here because after 3 weeks of carrying this bag one end of the strap lost its securing pin and came off the loop securing it to the purse. I was on a horse sleigh ride and all contents of my purse just dumped out in the snow! It took me a minute to realize the strap had lost its crucial piece and there was just a hole where it should have been. No way I could have found that in the dark of night, so I'm off to the shoe repair man to see the damages. I will add, beauty and style aside, no bag that is in this price range should behave that way, distressed or not. I own several Frye boots and respect the name, but admit they've gotten ballsy with their prices of late. Further research on showed reviews complaining of peeling leather and frayed edges...maybe it's not meant to be?!

I've admired this bag for a while. I held off for a while because of the price and then finally bit the bullet. I just couldn't help it. I had to have this bag! And I must say and it is as beautiful in person as it looks in pictures. I get compliments on the bag all the time. It is just gorgeous! Here's the problem, though - the corners along the bottom of the sides (along the seams) started to fray within 2-3 weeks of using the bag. The leather is just sort of disintegrating. I am heartbroken, because I have to return it and probably shouldn't try another one. I just noticed a similar complaint from someone else's review here. This problem can't be a coincidence. Frye why? This bag is way too expensive for this to be happening. Very, very sad. :(

I love Frye; however, this particular handbag is a huge disappointment. I also have the boots and the flats that go with this handbag. While the boots and flats are made of a good quality leather the handbag is not. Initially, the Deborah Shoulder looks great but the "leather" is almost tissue thin on the front and the back. I'm not certain if it is even real leather on the front and back. After minimal wear and tear, that "distressed" "leather" on the front and back will also result in tears all over, exposing the thin foam lining. I also treat my leather very well and all of my handbags are stored in a felt bag when not in use. I called Frye directly about this problem and the service agent was not the least surprised by my complaint.

The uber distressed parts of the bag are too distressed and are disintegrating. I love this bag but for the money it should last longer than this. I am sad to return it. I finally found the perfectly sized bag for what I need.
