Okay I've never been a fan of the BH but now all of a sudden when I look into inexpensive options for a work bag I think it may be the one. I went to the store and tried it on and I ended up really liking it! I want to know do any of you use it as a work bag? I need to be able to carry a 1" binder, my 8 1/2 x 11 portfolio, an agenda, my wallet, sunglasses, pencil case. I'm not worried about the small stuff fitting in but I do worry about the binder and portfolio. It seems that when I do searches that most of you use it as an everyday bag, but not really for work stuff. Is it because the folded sides get in the way? I know you can unstrap the leather on the side so it doesn't fold but I don't really like how that looks. I'm not interested in any of the bigger bags like the Cabas or the lockit horizontal because of the vachetta bottoms and the Passy is beautiful but too much $$$ for a work bag.
