This is the first Coach Skinny Flight Bag I have had the pleasure to acquire. These are rare bags that you just don't see that often in the vintage marketplace. Unfortunately, the carrying strap is missing for this bag but it is still fully functional as a top handle hand bag. The creed verifies this bag was made in New York City and has a registration number of 182-0601 stamped on it.

This is a very well thought out bag that will keep you organized regardless of whether you're flying across country, flying into the office or flying into the court room. It is 12 3/4" long so it will hold your standard files and papers with ease. It has two full length side pockets on either side of the bag for your files, magazines, court rules or air line tickets. There is a good sized middle compartment with a zippered closure to secure its contents. there is another pocket inside the middle compartment where you can keep your keys and smart phone separate. This is what the Coach Catalog had to say about this bag back in the Summer of 1986:

No. 9706 Skinny Flight Bag $164

Condition:

This bag is in very good condition. It has no rips, tears or holes. It is structurally sound. Unfortunately, the carrying strap is missing. Moreover, like most vintage bags over 30 years old this bag has some scuffing and scratching over much of its surface. Please see photos for a better description of the condition and ask for more if you are interested.

Significance of Made in New York City.

NYC Coach bags are beginning to disappear at an alarming rate. This Coach leather bag is one of the most sought after Coach products by collectors because it is a "New York City Bag". These are some of the highest quality Coach products. "New York City" bags were made in the original Coach factory in New York City that operated from the late 1960's through the mid 1980's. Some, but not all, of the Coach bags produced during this era were designed by the well known American designer Bonnie Cashin. Consequently, when you buy a New York City Coach bag you are buying more than an accessory, you are making a potential investment.

The statement on the creed: "Made in New York City, U.S.A." verifies this bag's origin.
Please review the photos carefully because they are part of this piece’s description and condition. Please feel free to ask questions or ask for more photos. Etsy limits the number of photos we can post with listing so we have more available.
