Oh wait, you know, now that I think of it, are you sure you have the cruise bowler? You mentioned in your PM it is smooth leather and the first generation spring 06 bowlers had smooth leather with the dark red/burgandy lining. The very first generation of bowlers did not have a cell phone pocket, including the metallic goatskin. The fall 06 deerskin/goatskin bowlers have cell pockets.
my dark bronze one has cell phone area and another flap area inside........and its inside is beige...........i had bought one in bright silver but returned it, it had no cell holder or inside flap compartment - it had come from an out-of-state store and i think it was from first generation.............but..because of the shape of the bag and the ease to get in and out of it, to me, it really doesnt matter one way or another re: the extra compartments
