Hi all. I bought a Portobello GM last summer because I love the slouchy style and thought it would be a great low maintenance bag. I found myself not really loving it after carrying it for a few weeks. The strap was stiff and didn't have the beautiful slouch like my Delightful GM. Since then I have had it stuffed and stored in the dustbag waiting for a good time to sell it. Well now the midsouth is getting hammered with sleet, ice, and freezing rain so Mono Speedy B got put away last night and Portobello GM came out. It really is a gorgeous bag that deserves a second look from me. My question to you owners is does the strap and canvas soften up with time? Is there a break in period? If so is there anything you can recommend to help it along? I don't want to make a costly mistake and end up selling a bag that actually totally works for me. Thank you in advance.
