Rated 2 out of 5 by SammySophie Great bag except for handles
I have many B. Makowsky bags but was disappointed in this bag. I loved it while using it, but the brackets holding the handles onto the bag came off, just pulled out of the leather on the bag itself! I've never seen anything like that happen especially with such an expensive bag. It was not something that could be fixed and it happened on both straps. I had to throw the bag out. I had only used it for a month or so and it was not overloaded with things inside. Of course it is a large satchel and you should be able to carry a lot in it, but I had a typical amount of things in it. I loved the nutmeg color and the bag was so soft and very roomy. What a disappointment and I have to say that the designer should have seen the weak handle holders as a problem.

Received this bag in black. I wanted a black bag with gold color hardware and so few have gold hardware on black bags. They usually always have silver. I thought this would be nice with the gold and pewter color. It's just okay. When I received it, the bag reminded me of "Granny's old purse". Style doesn't suit me well, and the straps are not long enough. I wanted to be able to carry it on my shoulder as well as my arm. The lock on mine is looser than I feel it should be and doesn't stay where I put it. The leather itself is very nice, but if you put too many things into the bag it doesn't hold it's shape as well as it should, being a more structured bag. Its TOO soft. I am contemplating returning it because even at the sale price it is too expensive to keep if I don't love it. I just hate that the return shipping charges are so high. About $11.00. For one bag???

Of all the B Mac handbags my wife has this was the first bag that we felt that was way ove r priced , and sub-standard. We got the Grey snake which really looks like a snake print not a snake bag at all.. My wife thought it was made of cloth not leather. The bag looks cheap and the straps are too short. No satchel should be only a wrist bag , they all should fit over the shoulder, afterall it's a satchel. I am afraid to admit it but this bag is going back and might be the last bag that we buy in this line. The turn lock hardware looks absolutely cheap. Maybe the other colors are better but this bag is not impressive and at this price point it should be that and more. Soft leather is not the only factor which makes a handbag.

I have this bag in the beige snake and I love the matte finish and the soft structure of the bag. It holds everything I need and closes with that great turn lock. The leather is getting softer as I use it. It's not the same soft feel of other B-Mac bags, but you wouldn't expect that due to the snake style treatment done to the leather. The other color choices are probably the squishy leather, but I wanted the snake. This bag goes with most everything you can think of. If you're on the fence, I recommend getting it.

Not only does this bag have an upscale look, it meets all of my demanding requirements....yummy soft leather, three roomy inside compartments, perfect handle drop and bottom feet. It is truly a WOW handbag.
