Fabulous bag! Label is removable
It’s a great bag! I have an older leather handle Boat and Tote from 2016 that is a workhorse. I’ve been waiting for LLB to bring back the leather handles. Finally! This new version is a bit different, but I still love it. Specifically, this new version is 2 1/2 inches taller than my older bag. My older bag is classic B&T colors. Handles are exactly the same. Canvas is the same material.
The hurdle for me was the glaring LLB label. I’m a loyal customer, but I don’t want to advertise for anyone all the time or for free. I took the risk and removed the label. It was easy to do in under 5 minutes with a seam ripper. Now I love this bag! Yes, the stitching marks are visible from about 8 inches, but if you didn’t know to look for them you’d never notice. I think the marks will disappear over time as the canvas softens a bit. From a foot away, I see nothing. Honestly, I think it looks much classier without the label.
I’ll use this bag as I did my older bag, as my everyday purse. I’m not bothered by the open top. You’ll want a couple small pouches or an insert for organizing if you also use it everyday because, like all B&T bags, it’s fully open inside.
So glad Bean brought this bag back!

Made in maine, beautiful comfortable handle
I am so glad that the leather handle 'Made in Maine' tote is back in stock. I like the new color (I got the navy) and the medium size is timeless. The leather handle make the boat tote comfortable to carry everywhere.
I did unstitch and remove the label sewed on the outside and I like it now 100% better now.
