  1. I love this spoiler and it has convinced me to sub finally.. I hope the rest of the box is as nice.. I have a few vegan leather clutches and have been wanting a good leather one for a while. It’s so hard to find Black/Silver hardware.. really love this..

  2. Hi, I’ve posted here two times over the last two days and neither post is posted? Can you tell me why my posts are not showing up?

    • Hi Mary,

      I’ll look into it. If you’re commenting from a different IP address for the first time, your comment would not be auto approved.

      • Hi Liz, thanks but I’m at the same IP address?

  3. Ethically-sourced leather? So like, they killed the cow BEFORE skinning it? What does that even mean?

    • Hi Rain, it means that the leather for the pouch was made with leather sourced from fair trade tanneries. Too often leather is created by workers in less than standard factory environments. We do not believe that is okay and want our overall product to be a piece that is not only functional and sleek but also a product free of sweatshop labor. We value our tanneries and the craftsmen behind the product and want them to earn an actual living wage. We are all in this together.

      • Brandon,
        Love the pouch! I look forward to receiving it in my next Luxor box! I wish you much success as you continue expanding your line.

  4. The more I look at this pouch, the more I kind of want it. It looks REALLY nice.

    But i also noticed it’s a lot smaller than I originally thought. So small that I wonder whether my phone would fit it there. That would be a big-time dealbreaker of it didn’t.

    • If you go on his website, you can see the dimensions for this pouch. I read a few stories on him and he seems to be an up and coming designer.

  5. I am DEFINITELY getting this box now!! Was thinking about it for a while. The pouch looks of high quality and seems like something I can actually use quite often (something that is pretty rare for me to find in a subscription box these days *sigh*). Cant wait to see what else comes in the box this November!

  6. I have a couple of black clutches, so not sure I need another. But this looks like a really good one, so . . .

  7. I thought about ordering this box, glad I have waited. Don’t think I will order their regular boxes, specially after the price is increased in 2016.

  8. Oof. Yeeeeeeah, no. I have a LOT of clutches/pouches and I barely ever use them. I don’t need another one.

    I too was hoping for a great spoiler; I’ve been undecided about subbing since only one of the boxes has blown me away so far. I think I much prefer it when there isn’t one major hero item in this box.

    I’m sure it’s a great, high quality pouch. That I don’t need. … Or really want that much.

  9. $300 black pouch? Easy no for me. The rest of the value of the box isn’t enough if I don’t like this one. Going to have to pass.

  10. I don’t “do” leather. Guess that frees up more money for a Deux Lux (vegan) mystery box. 😉

    • Actually, I think it is vegan leather!

      • the Brandon Blackwood NYC Mini Leather Pouch is real leather… “Mini Leather Pouch is made of ethically sourced genuine vegetable tanned cowhide leather”

        • No. It IS real leather. It is vegetable tanned COWHIDE leather. Vegetable just refers to the method in which the REAL leather is tanned.

          • Vegetable-tanned leather is tanned using tannins and other ingredients found in different vegetable matter, such as tree bark prepared in bark mills, wood, leaves, fruits, and roots. It is supple and brown in color, with the exact shade depending on the mix of chemicals and the color of the skin.

          • I said it was real leather in my comment… just quoted the description from his website – bc the description almost sounds misleading since they put “nice” words in there, but obviously cowhide leather is leather – whether its tanned with vegetables or not – ethically sourced leather is leather

  11. Im still on the fence about subbing to this box. I have wanted to sub for a couple of months and when I saw the email yesterday about their prices increasing in 2016 I thought to myself ok i need to get this box like now. I was hoping the spoiler would have been a super wow factor to just push me to sub but thats not the case. I will still need to think about it some more before I make the decision. Hope they come out with another spoiler soon.

  12. I am in the same boat as you guys. I wanted to sub to this- the pouch is nice but not a wow spoiler for me. It looks like great quality though. I don’t think I’ll sub but I am still not sure. Ughh man, Idk.

  13. I was contemplating this box but the spoiler has changed my mind. The pouch is over half the value of the box and is not really an impressive item. I have a ton of similar items.

  14. Almost immediately thought I would sign up, but then decided I really don’t need another pouch/clutch. It does look awesome though, so maybe I’ll try to swap for one. I just don’t need it enough to pay for it!

  15. It looks nice, but it’s not terribly exciting. I already have a couple black leather pouches/clutches that are similar. This spoiler does not motivate me to sign up. If there were color variations, I could see this being like the new 1951 clutch though.

  16. Ohhhh Love the look of this. Beautiful and classic. I hardly ever see purses of this quality in any sub boxes. Very, very happy with this spoiler and can’t wait for November!

  17. I was hoping for a fantastic spoiler, that one doesn’t look exciting for me. I was debating on getting the box, but $125 is too high for me to make such a gamble I think. I don’t know I’m still on the fence lol.
