i carry sweater or shawl all the time. it is light but has volume. when i do this with the brief, the bottom of the bag ceased to be straight and became curved somewhat in the middle causing the bottomm corners to "point out". a bit like how the first look if stuffed. the thing is, i saw one brief with crooked / uneven sides (not symmetrical). and i am getting a bit paranoid that this curving at the bottom of the brief may be caused by uneven stiching of the bag.... any thoughts....?
