Signoria Hobo-does the strap hurt?

  1. Hi-

    Have my eye on a bag for the sale today....the Medium Signoria Hobo.

    Does anyone have this bag? The strap looks like it could dig into the shoulder. It's such a pretty bag....any thoughts?

  2. hi, sorry for such a late reply cecilia2, but yes i do have this bag, it's GORGEOUS huh? the strap does hurt when worn with just a t-shirt but it's fine with a jacket or coat on.
  3. YES the strap hurts... Here is a post I made about it when I bought mine.

    Here is my newest Gucci. The things I love about it is: How big and slouchy it is. I love the leather. I love the color. I just love the bag over all.

    What I don't like about it is: It is not the most comfortable bag to carry. In my opinion there is a HUGE design flaw. The shoulder strap is rolled. Which makes it a little uncomfortable to carry but what makes it even more uncomfortable is the seam is on the inside and right at the end of the seam on each end it has a sharp point that digs into your shoulder. I tried the purse on in the store a few times before I bought it and I did not notice it since I was wearing a thicker shirt. Today I was wearing a tank top and it was boarder line painful. They really needed to make it a flat strap and also make it adjustable. Then the bag would have been perfect.

    I would return it BUT.... I have already exchanged 2 bags before this so I think this bag is mine forever. Here is what happened to make me exchange bags so many times. I bought the Brown Guccissima Princy Hobo and then my mother for Christmas bought me the same bag so I took mine back but since it was just over the 2 weeks refund time, I exchanged it for the White Guccissima Boston bag. Which I really loved but after about only 4 uses I was not happy with the way it was looking. The best way to describe it is like a tennis shoe once it gets worn it gets wrinkles and starts to look dirty and no matter what you do it still looks dirty. So they let me exchange it once again and I love the look of this bag so I picked this one. So this is why I can't exchange it again.
  4. Thanks Ladies!

    I love the design of the bag, but I did try it in the store, and the seam digging into my shoulder would drive me's too bad, because it's otherwise a beautiful, striking basic bag.

    I now have my eye on the medium chain hobo in basic black leather. My only concern is the arm space.....will I be able to wear a winter coat with the medium chain hobo?
  5. ^^ You're very welcome Cecilia2 and i'm glad it helped in making your decision a little more easier. But, did you see the matching wallet? OH MY GOSH! i fell in love with that and HAD to get it. good luck deciding on a bag, and be sure to keep on asking for advice if you need it :smile:

    -beljwl, i remember reading your post a while back! i was thinking oh my gosh we're so on the same page! what she wrote is so true and i hope others will take this advice into account... but i think the bag is gorgeous and i'm willing to deal with it and am mostly thinking about using it as a fall/winter bag (so the thick coats and jacket will make things less uncomfrotable).
