Thanks Allan, I'll have a check on that one.
I have so far seen online pics of it. It looks really appealing but I am worried that it might look a bit feminine on me. (I am a guy, in case anyone's wondering...)
try it, and then post pics here.

let me see if you give off a gay vibe. :P

The Tibet is a fabulous bag though not as structured as the J but I have found those to be a rare find though maybe I am not looking hard enough. I remember that Pete had one up on LZ a few years back in black clememce if I remember correctly?

But, I must say, I am loving this messenger and think it is sleek and masculine at he same time. Love the two strap closures and think they would look fab in any combo (done, undone, or both!) Much like a Birkin.

May I ask the weight? A 37cm Bolide feels very heavy to me and wonder how the 35cm Steve fairs?

Ernskie- I love your 35!!! How do you like the size?
taittinger2120 I like the ebene clemence myself!
Thank you.

The 35 is just the right size for my height which is 5'7". The bag could also get heavy because it's all leather inside including the compartments as you can see. If you're taller and don't mind the weight, then you can go for the 38.

Also, the strap is kinda long and mine is in the very last hole. A few people here on tPF who bought this bag said the same thing.
