B.Makowsky Vintage Leather East/West Flap Shoulder Bag w/Chain
I already own Bmak's vintage leather in another style and so I knew I'd love this too and absolutely do!!!!! Also, the chain strap is beautiful and I can wear it over my shoulder. The long strap works beautifully too and is the perfect length for crossbody. Am very happy with my purchase. The leather though not the same texture or appearance of his glove leather is still soft and I love it. This bag is a shorter version of one of his that is much longer and too big for me and I'm so glad I ordered this. Now, my handbag wardrobe is complete. :)
I love, love, love this bag! I love the color, the feel, and size of this bag.
Sophisticated style, but flap doesn't stay closed
I ordered this in black and have been using it for about 2 weeks. It is a sharp looking purse, very sophisticated, but the flap doesn't stay closed for me. Perhaps I might be putting too much in it because the magnetic button doesn't stay closed and when I set it down, it rolls over and stuff falls out. Also, I wish the chain was attached to the front flap because every time I open and close it, I have to re-position the chain to fall across the front of the flap again. Too much finagling with it. The leather is also too mushy for my taste. I'm going to have to stop buying B. Makowsky bags as they are too unstructured.. Back it's going.
Great Size bag
The size is perfect for everyday use. I bought it for travel, but I find myself using it more often. The leather is super soft. I like the fact that it can be a cross body, but it is so supple that just over the shoulder is great too. How about getting some fun spring colors in this bag!
Perfect size!! So soft, love the vintage look of the leather, even my 33ylo son commented - let's see, I think he said, "Oh, nice purse!! Love the leather, looks vintage". Perfect for running errands in a pair of jeans or pop off the shoulder strap and wear it out for the evening. Nice change from the larger sized totes, etc.
Nailed it again Bruce!!
THE GOLDILOCKS PURSE
This purse is the perfect size. I got the leaf and it might not seem like it but it's a very neutral color.....goes with a lot of things in my closet. The vintage leather is pretty. It's just as soft as regular BMak glove leather but the finish is a little like a super-fine nail buffer/emery board.
I purchased this in the black. It is a charcoal black and I love it. The leather is soft and smells wonderful. Even though Bruce used his regular glove leather he made it to look more vintage. Its still very soft and supple just different than his normal glove leather. The look is great. The size is great. I was worried it might be too small as I am a big bag girl but my stuff fits perfectly. This bag is gorgeous and another winner from Bruce. Thank you Bruce! I love it! I love the handles, very versatile bag. Just cannot say enough about this awesome bag. You won't be dissapointed if you order this bag!
