A200617 - B. Makowsky Glove Leather Zip Top Satchel
I love this bag! I received it as a bday gift and I'm adoring it. Its a good size bag, I'm a lover of large bags so this isn't a problem for me. The bag is somewhat light when empty, but once you fill it up it's heavy! I have to remember to take things out sometimes because it will begin to hurt my shoulder. But overfilling the bag is a personal issue, not an issue with the bag. I have it in purple and it's beautiful. I get compliments on it all the time and people always ask where I got it. It's a winner! :)
best purse a woman could own
I bought this purse in black a year ago in this past August in a local department store and it has surpassed any I have ever owned .I had on ly a small problem with the stictching along each side of the zipper becoming cracked BUT it did not detract from the beauty or the overall look it created with any outfit I could create to wear. It was a retirement gift to myself and at the price the Dept Store charged it is my #1 carry all any where any time.
love bag, quality deceiving
Got the purse, loved the feel and look . After a few months the handle unraveled and I often switch purses so it wasn't even used the entire time. Should have relied on the reviews.
3RD DISAPPOINTMENT OF B. MAKOWSKY
THIS WAS MY SECOND PURCHASE OF A B. MAKOWSKY BAG. I BOUGHT IT IN NUTMEG IN THE SPRING TO USE IN THE FALL. I BEGAN USING THE BAG IN OCTOBER AND BY THE END OF NOVEMBER THE ZIPPER BROKE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BAG. I RECEIVED MANY COMPLIMENTS ON THE BAG. IT SEEMS THESE PRODUCTS ARE LIKE LOOKING AT A BEAUTIFUL EXPENSIVE CAR ON THE OUTSIDE BUT ON THE INSIDE THE ENGINE WON'T RUN. MY FIRST BAG HAD TO BE RETURNED DUE TO THE NOISE OF THE HARDWARE AND I ORDERED BOOTS WHICH WERE GORGEOUS BUT WERE NOT SIZED PROPERLY. I NEVER HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH MY MAXX BAGS. NO MORE B. MAKOWSKY FOR ME. I WILL SEE IF I CAN GET THE ZIPPER FIXED..
Loved this bag when I received it, the leather was beautiful. But in less than two months the handle came undone. For a bag that costs this much it should last longer. Back to Dooney and Bourke where the quality can be counted on.
Looks like I paid more
I purchased the pewter color. So happy I did. I have been looking for the perfect pewter bag for years and I think I finally found it. Ladies, if you get the chance to buy this one in pewter don't pass it up! Also love the handles, and the size is perfect. Hardware is great, not too heavy.
Not up to Par
I own several of Bruce's bag and love them. This one in the blue is of average as far as a statement. I am done w the dark lining's. Please lighten it up!
I just pulled this bag out to enjoy less than 2 weeks ago. On 4th of July one of the leather wraps on handles just unraveled. I have tried every way possilbe to fix! I used a dull knife, keys nothing! I am frustrated and not happy. This is not a low ticket item.
Hated to send back
I absolutely LOVED this bag-it was green with Gold hardware, which is just what I wanted! I used and when my friend spilled a drink on it and the stain came up I thought it was ruined. Wrong! I went home, cleaned it with a white cloth, soap and water and let it hand to dry. When dried you couldn't tell the difference. I was thrilled with the leather quality-my disappointment came while shopping when I looked down and saw the whole strap unraveled at the cashier's station. This I could not fix. When I called Customer Service they were nice enough to give a refund. But I am still out the bag I wanted. After other reviews proved others had the same problem, I decided not to replace that particular bag. I have another bag made the same way on the strap-hope it does not come apart as well. Bruce, please look into this problem. Thanks,
I have only owned this bag for a few months, and it completely fell apart on me. The handles unraveled. For what I paid, this shouldn't of happend and I would caution anyone against purchasing this bag.
I received my bag in April 2010. The leather that wraps around the base of the straps just unravelled. I have used the pocketbook about 5 times. The leather is nice but to have it start falling apart after less than 2 months of having it is unacceptable for the price point.
Looks VERY expensive
I ordered this bag on waitlist in taupe. It looks WAY more expensive than it is. All the black edging details and the "v" leather insets show up so well on the taupe and I love the shape of the hardware. It is incredible. I wanted to keep it so badly but I am 5 ft 3 in and the bag dwarfs me. If you are a large woman, a tall woman, or you just love large handbags, this one is a can't miss. I hope Bruce brings it back in a smaller size.
Oh Pockets, where are you?
This bag really needs a zippered middle compartment to make it more functional. Second, the 2 front diagonal zips are useless, in my opinion. I see more and more of these diagonal zips from Bruce so I'm shying away from his bags. Also, a little more length on the strap (maybe 2 inches) would really make this bag more comfortable. Got the nutmeg. Gold hardware is nice but the nutmeg leather color is kind of funky.
