It seems to me that shoulder bag straps have gotten shorter and shorter in the past few years, making it more difficult to find shoulder bags that don't end up tucked in the armpit area. I'm starting to find it annoying as I see so many shoulder bags that I love, but the straps are so short. I took advantage of the 20% off coupon at Kooba handbags, Gustto handbags, Bulga handbags, Adina jewelry, Isabella Fiore, Dita, Andrea Brueckner and more! to order the Hayden-Harnett Gaza Luxe Satchel (the one with all the outside pockets) yesterday. I called first to find out the strap drop, and was told 12". That was ok. Now, at the HH site, I see the drop is actually 9", which I believe will be too short. Does anyone else find the short straps annoying, or is it just me? Also, has anyone seen/tried/owned the HH Gaza Luxe Satchel, and if so, what do you think of it. Thanks!
