I got this almost two weeks ago, but I was on vacation, so I'm finally posting pics! I got this from Barney's for an awesome deal, thanks to a tip from tPF member don't blow I absolutely love it! Check out all the scrumptious leather--even under the messenger flap! The leather is nice and smooth and thick. Some thoughts about the bag. I wear the strap on the shortest length, because I'm only 5'4" and I don't like low-riding messenger bags. The strap is actually cow hide leather with a fabric backing to it. I like it because it feels really strong. It holds a ton, but when it's empty, it doesn't look overwhelming. In these pics, I jsut have my MacBook Pro in it. Without the laptop sleeve, it fits perfectly, When i have the laptop in the sleeve, the flap sits a little higher, but it's not really noticeable. My only problem with it (and this is minor). Because the flap is so long, it's a little hard to dig into the bag while I'm wearing it. I need to hold the flap open with one hand and reach in with the other. This is really only a problem because I'm so disorganized with my bags and just throw everything in. But I'm trying to get better!
