I really wanted to get one of these, but once I saw them in real life I was turned off by how stiff the leather was. Aesthetically, they look good and are probably very durable (perfect stitching, solid leather and hardware) but kind of unpractical... you would have to undo the buckles every time you need to take something inside the bag. If you plan on leaving the buckles undone, it really doesn't look as nice.

I have the same size and colour as the above photo and its wearing well. It's pretty much an indestructible forever bag that I plan on giving to my kids as a cute retro school bag years from now. I have a feeling the leather is only going to get nicer as it ages. It's a little stiff right now. It took FOREVER to arrive- like 9 weeks shipped to Australia. But it was worth it.

9 weeks?!
I want the green batchel, with lettering. I'm concerned that it might be a little clunky though.

I see these everywhere in London. Definitely very cute in the bright colors but I actually like the Kate Spade satchels as well (though probably not crafted as well). For me, the bags are a bit overdone but I can understand that's down to my location.

Antigone, can you post pics/your opinion on the leather when you get them? I'm a tad jealous

^Hi! I will post a pic of my bag later. Re: the leather, this blog entry summarizes my exact thoughts about it:

That's not my blog by the way.

Sylphide, did they send you the tracking number when it was shipped? Further, was it sent after a month? They stated on the website that they would ship within a month, but it's been a month and I haven't heard a single word from them. I sent two inquiry emails but there was no response whatsoever...is the customer service this bad?

this trend is def taking hold in NYC...
esp in the neon colours...
*the neon is hard to miss...so it's hard not to notice...

i'm surprised that this thread isn't getting more action really...?!

i actually quite like the neon coloured versions, not too fond of the regular colours though.
the bag itself is super rigid which is my only hold back right now

the rigidity is kind of what's holding me back on these too actually...
though i have to confess i haven't actually seen one in person

i think the bright colors are really fun but wonder if they'll transition well into fall winter...

love the idea of getting one monogrammed though
