I ordered the large Paddington Hobo in the new Whiskey color. I really thought that this was the bag since I like to carry shoulder bags and love hobos. I wanted so badly to like it since it was my biggest purchase to date.:sad2:
Omagosh it was huge, clunky, and heavy. I really think that it could be used as an overnight bag. It just didn't hang right no matter what I tried with it. It's taller than the regular Paddy but the lock's weight causes the center to sag- not like the nice drape that you want a hobo to have. I am really grateful that I could send it back and wasn't stuck with it. Maybe in a smaller size or the regular satchel style would have been better and I should have just put myself on the waiting list. Part of me is glad that that I got to see and feel it in person though, it's really hard to shop sight un-seen and at least now I can cross one off the list.:lol:

Oh that's disappointing! I hate it when you have all of these expectations for a bag and it falls extremely short.

Thanks for the information, and sorry it didn't work out. Any idea what you might get to replace it?

No, I've got a Mulberry coming this week so hopefully that will be a nice "fix" while I re-group and re-plan.

I hate when that happens! I wanted one too but didnt want to buy one without experiencing them in person. I did take a chance on the regular paddington satchel though, which would have been great save for the scratched/dented lock and missing leather.

Ugg..how terrible. What are you going to get to replace it?

Oh, and BTW, I just love your kitty? You should post a bigger photo. That is just the cutest, fluffiest cat I've ever seen! =)

That phenom works the other way too - I walked into Nordstrom's today and fell madly in love with a bag I never knew could look so good - wouldn't have given it a second glance if I only knew it from an online view. Sometimes "ya just gotta be there". Glad it will all work out for you.
