A95536 - B.Makowsky Glove Leather Double Handle Large Flap Satchel
Everything and more....1st Bruce bag!!.
Didnt miss a beat on this one! Great quality in leather of course and the hardware is magnificient as well. Organization is such a plus also....the size for me is perfect ! Should have purchased this one before....will wait to see if it comes back in other colors...Thx Bruce...will keep watching
I like the size but the leather is not that great
This is my first and last purse by B. Makowsky. I like the size but the leather was not good and the hardware was cheap. Not a good deal..
I just received this bag. Keep in mind I've not carried it so these are my first impressions. Got the Brandy color and frankly its brown. I dont see any red in it. The bag is larger then I thought. I used the measurements provided vs a DB bag I had been using and expected it to be about the same... but no. Its much bigger. I can carrier all my "normal" purse items and my ipad... thats good.
Inside is lined with a royal purple fabric... so rich looking. The handles are stiff and hopefully they will soften up with use. This leather is sturdier then my other B. Makowsky bag... I like that. Feels more substantial. So far so goood... Its a keeper.
A very BEAUTIFUL BAG!!!
I purchased this bag in Grey, and it is one of the most beautiful bags that I own. The two-tone hardware is absolutely gorgeous. It is definately for a woman with finer taste. You will love it!!!!!
bigger than it seems
beautiful and soft...but definitely bigger than it seems...I like big bags but if these measurements are correct than the Medium size this comes in must be wrong...I have both and this one is MUCH bigger....almost too big for a luxury bag...but if you like huge totes than this one is for you...it's gorgeous...I wish the medium size came in the stone...that's the color I'm looking for...
Big and Beautiful!
This bag just arrived, and it is gorgeous. I cannot imagine not liking this bag if you are into big bags. This style is right there with bags that are3x this price. Oh, I have it in cocoa now I am eyeing the other colors!
I have admired Bruce's bags from afar for years. Finally I saved up enough money to make my purchase. I actually purchased this exact bag from Macy's, I haven't even had the bag for 6 months and it is falling apart....and I don't even use it everyday. Very disappointed. Bruce, for the $$$ you charge your quality should be comparable. I will go back to the proven quality bags when I make my next big purchase like Coach and Cole Haan.
Love this Bag!
Love at first sight! This satchel comes in a medium but I bought in the large. The bag is just beautiful. I have gotten so many complements and have given out the item #. Leather is like "BUTTER". What I like best about this satchel is the zipper flap is another full compartment because you would use the two-tone togge to get in the main portion of the bag This bag may be too large for some women but I love larger bags. I am thinking of getting the medium satchel in white for the summer. Mr Makowsky exceeded my expectation.
Great Big Bag
Just received the bag in red. The leather is fabulous. I was not sure about the red before it arrived. I love the color. Most of my bags are black. I have so many of Bruce's bags that I have lost count! His quality for the price is unsurpassed. Easy pay is always nice too! This bag will be great in the spring and summer especially. Love the size and extra zip pocket. I carry an Ipad and or Kindle so they would easily fit inside. Would like to see a key fob inside that I could slip my keys over. That would be a great feature.(just a suggestion).
I have to admit to not realizing how large this bag is in actuality. In spite of it being larger than I believed, I absolutely adore it. I chose the red color. I really like the fact that it's not a blue red.
I am use to individuals staring at my bags. I tend to pick classic type bags with a 'wow factor'. Well this bag fits right in with my others. People compliment me and stop me to ask where I got my bag. I tell them it was a gift. It was a gift to myself. I usually tell individuals where I get my bags. However with this one, I'd prefer not to see someone else with it. I am selfish on occasion.
The latch mechanism was extremely easy for me to manage with one hand opening & relatching. I love the fact that the hardward is both silver & gold tone. I wear mostly white metals. However, I really appreciate the pop of warmth the goldtone adds to the bag. I love the cell phone pocket on the outside. Also, I love the inside pockets and the zipper pocket. I love the slouch of the bag. I will add my bag stands softly. It doesn't slouch down. It may change after some wear. However, I'll just put a folder in the zipper compartment if I require it to appear structured. If you are on the fence about this bag take the leap. I would tell you the brands I typically purchase. I don't know if it's inappropriate to name other brands. So I'll share it's not uncommon for me to rock a $500 and up bag. So for the price of this bag I was extremely over the moon when I opened the box. The constant compliments are definitely a validation of my purchase. I will admit that if not one person complimented me on the bag, I would still love it.
I will be purchasing the the medium black version for one of my most cherished friends. I know she's going to love it. I may also treat myself to a brown version of the medium sized version.
One more suggestion, I think this bag would be a great diaper bag for stylish moms.
I own this bag in black and love the classic design and understated elegance. The leather is soft and luxurious. The bag is very roomy and can easily carry a book or files in addition to my every day items. The only negative is that the closure cannot be operated easily with one hand and often needs the use of two hands. I am glad that I purchased this bag despite the awkward closure.
I have this bag in black. I love this bag and have used it nearly daily since February of this year. The pockets/zippers are deep and allow you to basically use it as a weekender if you'd like. After 7 months of use, (I'm not hard on handbags at all!) the handles are cracked and peeling. This is not the same craftsmanship of my other B. Makowski bags which is very disappointing beacuse I adore this bag. Maybe I got a fluke, but it's past the return policy time so I guess I'll have to deal with it looking shoddy. For $250 I was hoping to get more than 7 months of use out of it. =..(
