I don't have any brown bags, believe it or not, and am seriously considering this one, thanks to your amazing modeling pix, Nikki. A silly question -- do the handles always stand up like that or can they be made to flip down when using the shoulder strap, like on the Blibio? I hope that makes sense.
Edited to add: I just watched the video again and it looks like the handles are fixed in that upright position. It's the one thing I don't love about the bag, but maybe if I see the bag IRL, it won't bother me as much.
I noticed in one of Toni's pics that her handles were starting to lay down, so I think it may be possible. I'm working on mine. I keep my bag in a file cabinet drawer at work, and when I put it in there I fold the handles down. It seems like the leather is starting to stretch a bit. Hopefully, it will stretch enough that they'll lay down on their own eventually.
My only problem with it is that it flops in so much that it's hard to use the outside pockets. I have to straighten the bag up first to get stuff in. Or maybe it's my phone in the inside pocket weighing it down too much? I've never had that problem with another bag..... I'll try to take pics this weekend.
