Aimee Kestenberg Leather Katie Hobo
Totally agree with the previous reviewer. I love my hobo bag! I don't have a problem with the lining either. I was concerned when I read the negative reports, so I tested it to see if the items would slip out of the pockets. I held it upside down and shook it, and the items stayed in place perfectly, which they don't with some linings. I also purchased it in the Ice, and love the color. I had previously purchased a designer bag from one of the better known designers and returned it because I didn't think the quality warranted the price.
Lining is Fine!
Sorry to disagree but I think the lining in Aimee's bags is just fine. The slick finish will allow for easier wipe offs from spills, pieces of paper. and lint. The color is great, easy to find belongings. Noise? Maybe I am too old to hear a crinkling sound but who is listening anyway? The design of her bags are wonderful--the proportions are good and flattering, the balance on arm or shoulder is comfortable, and the bags are lighweight. I have two of the Katie Hobo--almond and ice. Ice is a beautiful soft grey/blue almost white. Great in summer but other seasons as well and looks fine with both light and dark colors. Almond is a versital neutral. This bag holds all of my necessities plus and still has a nice drape when worn even filled. I highly recommend it.
Aimee, you have a beautiful line BUT you must rethink the lining if you want a following. I love the look, size, color and the way the strap sits on the shoulder but the lining is terrible. It was making so much noise when I was transfering things into it and then when I was out and tried to take out my wallet......the noise was......sorry back it goes. By the way the lay out of the inside of the bag is great. It is just the material of the lining.Please change it and I will buy this bag again.
Ice blue blues.....
I really liked the color....I really wanted to like the bag but I could not get over the lining in the bag. I think if you are spending this amount of money it should be a better quality.
I have to agree with the first reviewer. I thought the design of the bag is fashion forward, but the execution, disappointing. Leather, nice, but the inside crinkly lining is terrible. The designer should pay more attention to the quality of the bag, and I wouldn't mind paying more for it.
Not sure about this one
I like the style of the bag, strap length, outside pockets, stud work, etc BUT Aimee Aimee Aimee WHY the crinkly lining??? I thought I had left a piece of paper in there because when you reach in the bag or pockets, it makes a crinkling noise. The lining seems like cheap plastic or vinyl or something. I don't know if I can deal with that, not sure if I will keep the bag or not. The leather is just OK. I am a B Mak girl (14 bags and counting) and I thought I would give a new line a try. Sorry, but it just does not compare to the B Mak leather and quality.
