Soft Messenger Bag
Awesome bag, watch out for the strap attachment
I love this bag and I have received many compliments.
However, I had to exchange it because the area where the strap attachment is sewn to the bag itself ripped. The leather (lambskin) is very supple and in my opinion not strong enough by itself to support the sewn on strap attachment. There should be more webbing or similar backing to support the strap attachments. I generally just carried a couple magazines, my iPad, and some moleskin notebooks. The bag really isn't big enough for my laptop and I didn't carry heavy items.
With all of this said, Brooks Brothers in Boston was very understanding and immediately exchanged the bag for a new one. I hope my first experience was the exception, I love the bag.
