B. Makowsky Glove Leather Zip Top Satchel with Chain and Pleat Detail
This is a beautiful handbag, no doubt. I had the black. Loved the pockets, inside and out. The only thing was the puddling. When you sat it down, it just sank into itself and for me a senior, it took a lot of digging to get wallet or other items out. Still it is a mavelous purse, just not for me.
Great Handbag 4 Travel & Daily Use
I love this handbag! Leather is soft and scratch resistant. The two handle options are great when traveling or shopping! Spacious inside. I would like another built in pocket/organzier on the other side of the interior of the bag. Overall-luv it!
I like this...
Very soft bag and it doesn't puddle or sink in the center when you load it up. Also, the chain does hang low and I asked my husband to remove a few links and I like it much better now., Wearing it with the shoulder strap makes it kind of wonky because the short straps don't really lay down or stick straight up but I seldom use the shoulder strap ....just glad I have the option. All in all I like this bag...it's just different and in a good way.
I really love this satchel! It is the perfect size. I always carry large bags because I have alot of stuff. I did not think this would be big enough for everything but it looks smaller than it is. Not only do I have plenty of room for everything, but I can put it on my shoulder with ease when I need to, though I usually carry it as a satchel to save my shoulder and neck from pain. I got the mustard which is a beautiful english saddle color. Lisa described it perfectly in the presentation. I hope to get another in a different color soon.
Can We Focus Please???
I purchased this in pumpkin & was carrying it yesterday when I asked a young, slim, classy Macy's Associate to help me with my inquiry about a Brahmin bag, as well as payment of my account bill. I wasn't sure either would ever get done, because she couldn't quit gushing about my BMak! I couldn't really hold it against her, since I also find it absolutely luscious.
Chain Detached from Zipper Pull
I liked the bag, especially the option of using the shorter handles or the shoulder strap. However, I've been using the bag for just a week and the chain came detached from the zipper pull. I will try to have it fixed and keep the bag.
This bag is da bomb!
I don't give good reviews lightly. I love handbags but I'm tough on them; it's a rare bag that satisfies my sense of style and still holds up to the rigors of my everyday life. This bag does it. I bought it in Leaf; if you like teal, you'll love this color. I don't know how B. Makowsky got such a good idea of what women need in a handbag but he nailed it with this one. Get it, you won't regret it.
Love the Softness and Style
I purchased the black satchel. The leather is excellent quality. The purse is very well made and very stylish. The zipper detail is outstanding. The satchel is very roomy, and I love the single shoulder strap. All the pockets are wonderful. I have received compliments on my purse. My daughter said, I have too many pretty bags, and I should give her some. ( Yea, right.) This is probably my eighth B. Makowsky bag, and I love them all.
Loved But Too BIG
I love the look and leather of the B bags, but they are always too big for me. I am a petite women and love what I would call a medium bag (12X10) and the only smaller bags are crossbody and I love short handle bags.
Beautiful bag BUT....
This bag is very well made. I loved the color and was so excited to finally purchase my first BM bag. That being said, I found that I did not care for the style once it arrived. I would not recommend this bag because I think the strap/handles make it somewhat awkward. This is more to do with personal likes then anything wrong with the bag, so if it appeals to you, Go For It! Mine was regretfully sent back.
Good size and pretty color
I chose the green and like it for it's roomieness and pockets so I can keep organized. I have found the zippers to be a bit sticky. Mine catches a bit at the halfway point.
Beautiful, but not right for me
This bag met all my expectations until I took out the stuffing and put my things in it. When I used the shoulder strap it completely lost its shape and looked kind of like a skinny, long tube. I NEVER use the short handles on a bag, but if you carry your bag like that, it would be fine for you. It holds its shape perfectly when you carry it that way.
