I am getting manic that I really want this bag in the XL size, but do you guys think a boy could really pull it off? I think the basic shape of it is pretty easily worked, but I wish it were just a little bit bigger. Thoughts on that, please...

i totally agree! i carry a bal WE most days and i do not stuff it so it sort of drapes around me and looks a bit smaller. whenever i see the bal WE jammed , it looks bigger and boxy. i was told the medium givenchy does not drape like the XL does and that ashley's bag is not filled up.

all of the metallics have ostrich handles...

here is a pic of the black metallic ... it's so stupid that barneys doesn't show one [they really should get pics of each colour instead of just showing one!]

I think there 2 different types of ostrich/exotic handles, no? there is the one like on my bag, like reese's, which is perfectly matte, and then there are ones like the one you posted that have metallic handles....is that right?

yeah there are two types of ostrich claw--mat and metallic, to match the leather on its respective bag.

the people at barneys dallas are persistent that the handles on the metallic bags are python... so not ...

I really like the black metallic!!! I'm sure it's pretty hard to find in the UK though.. Brian do you know the price of it?

mundo: would we be able to see a picture of you carrying the bag? Please?

I think it's a really unisex looking bag, I think a guy would look awsome with it!
