B. Makowsky Metropolitan Leather Zip Top Slouchy Hobo
Preview Your Review
This is my first B. Makowsky purse although I have admired them for years. The truth is I am so hard on purses that I felt I would not get my money's worth before I ruined it. But to my surprise I have discovered that the bag only gets better with use.
Thank you Mr. Makowsky for the beautiful bag. That you QVC for making it affordable!
Perfect for Me
Been looking for a new black bag for a long time. Took a chance
on this one when it was presented on easy pay and free S&H.
So glad I did. It's very soft and fits great over the shoulder. Love the
single strap and hobo style for everyday use. Thanks Bruce and QVC
for an affordable opportunity to purchase a beautiful leather bag.
Nice compartments but.....
I have several B. Makowsky bags. The others were great. This one has nice compartments inside and outside the bag. I didn't think the quality of the leather was as nice as the others. But, the thing that really looks bad on this bag is the strap. The seam is on the top or outside of the strap, and it is NOT nicely finished. To me it looks like it was put on in the easiest way possible. A little more effort could have given a much nicer look to the finish.
I can put everything in is bag including my 7" small tablet and I can't feel a thing!! Lots of room and pockets!! I loved it so much I ordered another color!!
Fab in Black & Gold
I love love love this bag. Leather is soft as butter. Pockets melt into you perfectly.
I bought this "perfect size" bag in gray for my 21 year old daughter , ,,she just "loves" it. The color gray goes with just about everything ,,beautiful design & fab zippers !! Big thanks to Bruce.....
Beautiful Bag But...
I love B Mak bags & have lost count of how many I have. This is a beautiful bag and I disagree with some of the reviews I saw about the leather. I think it's just as nice as his other bags, soft & supple but just a little bit lighter weight which makes the whole bag much lighter than most of his bags which to me is a very good thing. The other plus to note is the zippers. I don't think I have ever had zippers work so smoothly.
I have 2 issues with it. First, it's a little too big for me. I don't carry a ton of stuff so what I do have is kind of getting lost in the bag. Annoying but I could deal with that. What I can't get used to is the pouching of the pockets in front. As soon as I pick up the bag, the 2 front slip pockets gap out. A lot. I can't put anything important in them as I would not trust that everything would fall out and it makes the bag look weird as well as a pickpockets dream if you have anything valuable in there.
Really nice, sharp looking bag and a fantastic color (gray) but sadly it's going back.
Beautiful bag BUT......
This bag is beautiful (I ordered it in the charcoal) but it's not as substantial as I had expected, especially for the price. The leather is very soft but thin (so the bag is light). Also the seam on the strap is on the outside of the bag, which looked kind of weird. Overall it's a nice bag so I gave it 4 stars (took one away for the seam) but, for me, it's not worth the price tag.
Love/ Hate Relationship
I have owned several of Bruce's handbags over the years- probably a dozen of them. I own this one in charcoal. The style of the bag is perfect. It's functional and very sharp looking. The hardware is beautiful. My problem is with the leather. The handle is turning a different color. This is the second BMak bag that's turning colors after just a month or two of use. Too late to send this back but I won't be buying this brand anymore. The bags are too expensive for just a couple of months' use.
Love the look......
I love the look of this bag, I got it in the Turquiose. I own several Bmak bags and I love the leather and the quality of his bags. However, this bag did not seem substantial enough to warrant the price. I did notice the color faded in some areas as other reviews stated. I really wanted to like it but it just seemed to fold in half when I had it on my shoulder. Therefore, I regretfully sent it back.
THANK YOU BRUCE!!
I ordered this item in the charcoal and received it today. I had to write a review because I got an "extra special" gift with my purse! I was taking the stuffing out of the purse and in the front, left hand side zip pocket was 2 BRAND NEW $5 BILLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I checked the box and all the wrapping items to see why and couldn't find anything. I called customer service and the lady I spoke to said there was no special thing going on with them. I thought maybe it was a contest of sorts. No contest that she knew of. So, I got a pleasant surprise!! It had to come from the factory that way because it was all wrapped up in the packaging! I just want to say, THANK YOU, BRUCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope you read these. :D
I love this bag!
I have been watching this handbag for awhile. It is very light weight which I need due to shoulder problems. It was larger than I thought it would be but it is so soft and slouchy that it does not appear large. I got the black. I love the Chianti color but I am waiting for easy pay to get that one. I was concerned about the dye on the handbag due to the reviews but I will take a chance.... so ..... If it ever goes on easy pay again the Chianti is mine!!!! I love that this one is not heavy like most Makowsky bags...
