Sorry, I can't answer your questions, but I wonder how this bag will slouch when you put things inside. Also, what would the weight of the bag be with all the studs? Is it leather on canvas, or leather on suede?
I have this bag. Got it during on sale from NM. It is leather and suede. It is heavier than my lightweight hobo type bags but it doesn't bother me. It is challenging sometimes to open and close especially when trying to do it while carrying it. When you put things inside, it does cause a slouch. I like things not as structured so it doesn't bother me. I definately love it for the look.
