3 Bags...3 Brands...all much the same

Well, they're all hobos with two front pockets, but I don't think they're that similar, personally. :shrugs:

ETA: Oh and two little straps underneath (what are they for, exactly?! :lol:).
it's so funny that you noticed this...I have been thinking the same thing after seeing all three of these at retail recently.

I am beginning to think that some of these brands "buy" designs from one source. It sounds crazy, but it is too "coincidental", don't you think?
If you go to Lord & Taylor, they sell a brand called Paradox, and some that looked exactly like MJ Stams jumped out at me; therre may be other Paradox bags that "closely resemble" other popular bags, also.

Regarding these 3, maybe there's only so many ways you can do a hobo with 2 zippers and a couple of straps on the outside and they end up looking very much alike.
