This is a beautiful bag...I purchased the Vachetta. But strap is too short & top gaps open. After much consideration I'm sending it back

I bought this purse when it was on lunch time special. I like the color Champagne I chose and it has plenty of space for an average purse size. I do like the center zip up compartment for carrying my billfold and more personal stuff. The complaint I have with it is the strap even though plenty wide---is needing at least another inch or so in length to rest comfortable on your shoulder and to hang right when you are carrying it by hand. The outside zipper pockets is not wide enough to place your hand in to retrieve anything you may have placed there---so they pretty much are useless.
Rated 5 out of 5 The Hobo is the BEST!
I'm in LOVE with this B. Makowsky Hobo! I ordered it in Vachetta and it's so beautiful and rich looking. The leather is buttery soft and I have received so many compliments on the way it looks. Ladies you will not regret this purchase. Perfect for a gift to yourself or anyone!
Rated 5 out of 5 by obsessedwithbags Too Pretty To Put Away
This is a great bag!!!! I wanted the blue, but it was sold out, so I went for champagne. It's perfect. Not too big,not too small...looks great with jeans, my Sunday best and everything in between! I travel, and this one is great because it can only hold so much and weight matters when your dealing with mass transit! I have had it for three weeks and so far its been to NYC, the beach and toronto...the style worked in all three cities!!! When I'm in the office I usually put my purse in the file cabinet, but this one is too pretty to put up. I leave it on my desk all day because it just makes me that happy! :) THAT, by the way is the mark of a really HOT bag!!!! Order now, you'll love it!

I have this bag in gold and love it. It holds everything and doesn't get heavy and leave marks on your shoulder. I ordered the black and had to return it as the zipper was stuck. I reordered the black and then changed the color to vachetta. What a beautiful bag but guess what....the zipper stuck!! It is getting better over time- I just could not return the bag it was soo pretty!
Rated 5 out of 5 by elj35 Great size!
I got this purse in the green color and I just think it's fabulous! I have been looking for a purse about this size for when I don't want to carry my huge purse. It's the perfect size for going out at night also. In addition, the leather is exceptional. When they say "glove leather' boy it is so soft and supple and the quality seems to be better compared to the pebble leather, in my opinion. Anyway, if you are looking for a smaller bag that has a shorter shoulder strap, then this is the bag for you.

Love the color, style, inside design but too small for me. Would recommend to anyone who needs a medium size bag.
Rated 5 out of 5 by WiNKable Perfect Small Bag
I am a no fuss kind of girl. I have a wallet, keys, phone, and only one or 2 other small items I keep in my purse. Unfortunately most purses fall into the teeny tiny or massive beach bag category. This one is the perfect in between!
I don't have gaping with the clasp unless my boyfriend makes me put his wallet and sunglasses in there along with my stuff. The leather is so soft... And the wide strap never slides off my shoulder like the hard, round straps out there.
I can easily keep my keys in the front zipper but I just have a car key, house key, and key fob. My Chapstick fits in the other so it's great to not have to dig around in the purse for the things I use most.
Only thing I would change about this bag would be to have a vibrant interior fabric color so the rare times I have other small items in there they are easier to find. Used it everyday for the last 6 months and its still going strong!
Rated 5 out of 5 by CynTX Most luxurious leather ever
I have NEVER been a handbag person. I bought other high end bags because of their name, but couldn't care less. They were all just bags to carry my stuff around. I had never heard of BMAK before this first purchase, but he has begun my love affair with HIS handbags. I LOVE the scent and softness of the leather. It's incredible. I now know why he handles the bags as he does during a presentation. I LOVE the softness of the strap on my shoulder. It truly feels like it's hugging my shoulder. I heard that phrase before, but never understood that until now.
I was doubtful about the size of the cell pocket, but my EVO fits perfectly. I LOVE the magnetic closure and the "snap" sound of security. I prefer it over the zipper for quicker access.
Also, the hangbag is very light. Can't wait to fill it up. And I should mention the inside middle zipper compartment. I love that it holds it's own inside the handbag. I've had other bags that the middle compartment is just in the way and sags all over the place. Not here. It is very useful.
This handbag is exquisite! You can't go wrong. I want more!! I ordered a differnt style in blue and should get it tomorrow. I'm very excited :o) What shall be next?!?!
Bruce - I am such a fan of yours now. You are awesome! I am going to start using your (MY) handbags as an accessory and not just "a bag to carry my junk around." I see the light... haha
Rated 5 out of 5 by NancyNurseRN I LOVE THIS IN CHAMPAGNE COLOR!!
The color is sublime, the leather soft and supple, the tassles are cute, it has space enough for my large wallet and plenty of other things, my keys go in one of the front zipper pockets. The inside side pockets hold sunglasses, receipts, etc. I like the magnetic closure. It is a lightweight purse, which I love, and it's not huge. I sometimes like a smaller size. True, for a shoulder bag, the strap is not long, but it fits nicely under my arm, and I like how it slouches across the top. All in all, a good purchase for me, and a lovely color for spring/summer.
Rated 1 out of 5 by dyl Designed in a Vacuum.....
I ordered this bag from the Insider magazine. It appeared to be exactly what I was looking for: Beautiful Aruba blue, hobo, not too large, lightweight, magnetic closure, zip pockets on outside. (Of course, you wouldn't be able to determine all of these attributes from the picture online, since it shows the reverse side!) As other unhappy reviewers have stated, the top gaps--terribly--making it impossible to use and feel secure about the contents. Perhaps these designs are turned out so quickly that a prototype isn't made and "road tested" so to speak??? The design, color, quality of leather are great; the function is decidedly NOT. Back it went. Big disappointment, as this should have been perfect.

I have over 20 B Mak bags but this one is going back. The front zipper pockets are useless they are to small and the top gaps open. Did Bruce really design this bag?
