A98164 - B. Makowsky Glove Leather Zip Top Large Hobo Bag w/Fringe
Second B Mkowsky bag and while I like it in the Pewter, I don't love it. It is a bit too disco looking for me but I love the combination of gold and silver hardware as I wear both in my jewelery. I used it yesterday and it kept slipping off my shoulder. The weight is great as it is a lighter weight bag than the first B Mak bag I purchased.
I think it will go with a lot in my wardrobe with the exception of chocolates and gold toned clothes. I just think perhaps I purchased the wrong color. I am not loving the pewter tone at all and somehow these metallic looking bags look inexpensive. Quality of the leather was buttery soft and the purse was constructed very well. The zipper seems to get caught a bit too. Oh well. WIn some and lose some. It appears to just be me as the other reviews are all positive.
Fringe for Me
I've been watching for this bag to surface again, and I was fortunate to find it in pewter. I received it the other day and used it for the first time today. I just love it. I don't have anything like this in my handbag wardrobe and that's what makes this bag so desirable. I wish Bruce would bring this style back...perhaps modify it a little...but how about a beautiful rich green, wine, and cobalt blue. I'm sure they would sell! I enjoyed the compliments I received for the bag and the admiration for the quality in the workmanship. It's a "wow" bag.
Love This Bag
This is one of the nicest bags I have ever bought, I love coach, and donney, bags but this is my favorite! The quality is beautiful it's a comfortable bag, I love the size, and I get tons of compliments! I have it in bronze,
This is a gorgeous bag. I have it in chocolate and bronze, and almost got the pewter (which was also gorgeous), but I sent it back since I had the other 2 colors. I think if it ever comes back in black I will get that color too. I think my biggest draw for this bag is that it is light weight, and oh yes, it has organization because of the side pockets. The size is also just right as a little more than a medium size, though I do like larger bags. By the way, my 20ish year old wanted to take one of my bags from me. You will love it!
Ggggorgeous Pewter Bag
The bag is gorgeous. It is large and stylish. The pewter is beautiful. I have had it a few weeks so I hope the color lasts. I cannot stop raving about how nice it looks. My iPhone fits nicely in the cellphone holder inside of its Otter box. So... not sure of the complaints about the cell phones not fitting. The leather feels great and the color matches every outfit I wear, dressy or casual.
I am totally a Coach girl and I love Makowsky bags as well because of the quality and price. Get this one before it goes. No regrets.
I have this bag in black smaller in size yet paid the same price as this larger bag. The style is unique and very eye-catching. The leather is very soft and light, making this oe of my favorite leather handbags. The pewter color is wonderful, metalic but not shiney or disco looking! It's larger than I'm used to but I'm keeping it because it's' gorgious, lightweight, unique, and a work of art! :) I hope it comes back in a smaller size, other than the cross body bag.
My hubby got this bag for me in brandy for my birthday.....he paid full price. Since this has gone on clearance I've bought gold, pewter, and bronze. I get sooo many complements from cowboy church friends to my show friends.....it holds everything...
GIRLS GO FOR IT....U WONT BE SORRY
like it but have some suggestions....
I have at lease 6 B. Mak bags; I got this in the bronze; it is very pretty, easy to carry with wide comfortable strap; I really like the extra side zipper pockets for fast access. It holds alot but is not a heavy bag. AND easy pay is wonderful...... I like the bag alot but.............
Recommendations for Mr. Mak....Cell /smartphones are much longer wider now so the cell pockets are usually too narrow and not deep enuf to accomodate our larger phones...suggest a small outside pocket with velcro or magnetic snap. Those phones are too expensive to lose or drop out of our bags ..........but we do have to get to them quickly.
Putting feet on the bottom would be GREAT! as unfortunately, we often cannot hang bags easily and are forced to put them on the floor. Who wants to get this gorgeous bags all dirty on the bottom? nobody! Please include feet! ( Even if they are plastic to save cost!!! ) Thanks for the great bags.
Luxury bag snob
In one year I've ordered eight B Makowsky bags.. Mainly because I hate how they "flop" when you sit them down. And I don't care that iit's because the leather is so soft. Whenever his bags are aired they NEVER flop. They keep the paper stuffed. I own at least 15 high end bags and the only thing leather is the trim. B's bags are leather. The reason I keep purchasing is b/c they're very stylish. Love the styles and creativity. Found a cure for "flopping" ladies, pursefection. Search it on QVC. I purchased in gold and it is everything I like in a bag except, flopping, no feet and that tired animal print. Hope y'all are reading and making changed based on reviews. Your bags are to beautiful to have so many design flaws.
I ordered ths in pewter and it is so beautiful. I was torn on that or bronze...I am more od a gold person,, but the pewter is darker than silver, almost has a gun metal tone. I also. Was pleasantly surprised by the small zip pockets to the left and right of the middle zipper . Room for keys and other small items...I do like a middle zip pocket fr my I pad but it's no biggie.
I also lucked out and got in on the brandy which hasn't arrived yet. Prolly won't keep both .
I ordered the purse in pewter and it is beautiful. I would like to have feet on the bottom of the purse. I have received a lot of compliments on the purse.
Love this Bag!
It is everything I had hoped it would be. Comfort on shoulder and size. I only like larger bags. Love the exterior subtle pocket for the cell phone.
