B. Makowsky Glove Leather East/West Zip Top Satchel
I am a die hard fan of Coach and ordered this bag in denim. It arrived and I have already worn it and I am thrilled! The leather is so soft and the soft denim blue is neutral and goes with any color. It is large enough to put whatever I need into it without feeling too heavy on my shoulder.
I will definitely consider buying another bag when he has a special on.
Handles Not Good
This purse held up well EXCEPT for the handles unraveled. I purchased the satchel in the yellow, which was neat and held together well. But, the yellow wore off the handles and the brown showed through - and still unraveling. This should not happen with the cost points of this product. It began this almost immediately when I began to use it.
Handles Falling Apart
I too bought this bag several years ago when it first came out. Like the others, I loved the bag and thought the quality of leather was top notch.....until it started to fall apart on the handles. The bag was barely used, but the handles looked a mess. The 30 day return policy had lapsed, so I was stuck with a bag that I was too embarrassed to carry. I've tried taking it to several cobbler/shoe repair places in town over the years, in hopes of having the handles replaced, but have had no luck. I have a vast collection of Donney bags, some I purchased 20 + years ago and all are still in excellent shape. No more B Makowsky bags for me.
I purchased this handbag a couple of years ago in the pumpkin color--paying the full price of $230.00, since this was my first B. Makowsky bag I was very excited to get it. Initially I was very happy, but after a few months I noticed that the color of the leather was wearing off around the top of the bag and also along the edges of the handles. Since this was not an inexpensive bag I was really disappointed in how the bag held up--I am not hard on my handbags--and really expected more from this line. I probably will not purchase another B. Makowsky handbag!!
Please Need More Colors
I truly love this style of a bag. I own this bag in several colors and I loved it a lot!!
This my favorite purse I purchased it in lipstick red I would like to purchase two more in the same color lipstick red The purses are gifts for good friends Bruce has absolutely the best red !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The purse is large enough for a purse organizer I use the front niche for my keys I use all the little pockets for many items
I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER B. MAKOWSKY BAG
i purchased this bag in purple when it was full price but was on easy pay. Less than one year later, the fabric on the straps is coming apart. It's like the handles are made of a different material. I can't use it anymore because its embarrassing. The last time that I carried this bag a woman stopped me and asked me if my bag was a B. Makowsky because she noticed how the straps were peeling She said that she owned a B. Makowsky bag that did the same thing. I'm very angry because this was an expensive bag. I can't return it because of course more than 30 days has passed.
I too had the problem with the handles falling apart within the first couple of months using this bag. I wish I had checked the reviews back then, maybe I could have returned mine. Nice bag but for the price and reputation I expected so much more in quality. The bag is very heavy before placing anything in it. I am going to think twice before buying another of this brand.
Wish I had read the reviews before ordering this bag. The side pockets are so narrow you can barely fit your hand inside & . I really prefer a middle compartment for my way to organize. The bag is truly heavy. The denim is a pretty color but that's all I can say positive about this bag and I have about 8 of Bruce's bags. I've already expanded on other brands & will be more aware of function in any future handbag purchases
I purchased this bag several years ago.I did so because I was planning a trip,and thought a bigger bag was what I needed.WRONG,the bag is quite heavy empty so I dissed that idea.The bag has been in my closet in a dustbag since then.I finally decided to start using it 2 months ago.I was not sure how much I paid but I knew it was not inexpensive.Well ,I am now really upset >I have used it since Christmas 2012 and not every day.I noticed the handles were coming apart so.I decided to go online to find what I paid for it,and also to find if any other customers had the same problem.Wow was I shocked. I am suprized that it is still for sale.I will never buy another bag from this company.This company should be forced to address this problem.This is a defective product.I had to give 1 star to submit review,otherwise I would give it 0
LOVE THIS BAG
...and paid quite a bit more for it when I got it in a few years back in the Taupe color. Love the roominess and the zip top for security and easy access...and since it came with rose hardware, I'll be able to match it with my bronzo italia watch and bracelet and enjoy wearing them together this Spring and Summer. Thanks Bruce, for being so far sighted in your design capability.
nice purse but handles peel
bought this a while back in black carried it every day handles peeled after 6 months.Loved the body of the bag. My tailor made me new handles out of black leather and he matched it perfectly He only charged me 15 dollars now my bag is indestructable
