Just saw the Bryn today having decided it would probably be my next purchase, and I'm slightly disappointed. I agree with previous comments - the flame is bright orange and not a versatile colour at all, especially in the cooler months. The leather was very matt on the petrol version which I wasn't sure about, although it's a nice colour. I really like the oak one and think I would wear it a lot BUT....this just doesn't look like a £695 bag to me. It is very similar to a bag that a friend of mine bought recently for around £150 from either Jigsaw or Whistles. I tried it on and it looked great cross-body but it's not a bag to hold by the hand, and the tiny turnlock is SO fiddly! Having said that. I love the outside pocket, handy for Oyster card or even your mobile phone, and I do think it's a hugely wearable bag. Not sure if it will become a classic though, as unlike the Bays and Alexa which spawned hundreds of high street copies, the Bryn seems to be a repeat of bags that are already available on the high street.....surely for £700 a bag should make your heart sing and not be a sensible buy?!!!
