Many of us--me included--responded with a "YUCK" :yucky: when pics were first posted on tPF a while back of the new YSL Downtown bags. The shape is unusual--someone said it resembled a maxipad with wings, I think!

Now I'm wondering if its worth giving this bag a second look. Has anybody seen it IRL? Is it growing on anybody? :s

Here are more pics from style.com and NM...

seen 'em at the boutique but didn't hold them.. but then i looked at them in the look books and they looked really cool.. but i saw that the bottoms were sagging in some of the runway pics.. i think they may look a bit different when held. jury is still out on this one for me..
 
YESYESYES..... i am dying for the downtown!!!

in black deer!!!!!
i used to hate the zippers in the front but that has really grown on me and the one i have my eye on does have them (there also is one without but i think the zippers are really cool now)......i am LOVING it.....ugh!!
i cannot wait to try it on......but i know i won't be able to resist buying...:ninja: :love:

^^^Well, if you get one of these bags brian, please post pics so we can all see it on a real person! I think it comes in a medium and large size, and I'm curious to see how big it is, and whether the bottom really sags...

the bottom definitely does sag, but i don't hate it that much..... and i think the sag all depends on what material it is. on thicker ones like ostrich it isn't as bad.

^ I think the heat is warping your brain.

The YSL on 57th is pushing it like crazy, they're all scattered around, in the MENS RTW section for some reason. It's a severly fug bag.
