  1. hello everyone,

    I wanted to seek some advice as I have recently set my sights on getting an Evelyn bag (PM size) and preferably pre-owned, but I have concerns because I am a guy and I am concerned that with getting an Evelyn I or II the non-adjustable strap would be a big concern if I wanted to wear the bag as a cross-body bag,

    I'm 5' 9" and around 175 lbs and which is not exactly 'slim'.
    And so I have a few questions :

    • Have any of you gentlemen successfully worn the Evelyn PM, versions I or II, as a cross-body bag in spite of the non-adjustable nature of the strap ?
    • How much would it cost for me to purchase an Evelyn III strap new from the store (just the strap only, with intention of using it on an Evelyn I or II) ? I assume the strap for an Evelyn III PM costs the same as an Evelyn III GM, no ?
    • And as an off-topic, what colors/materials do you think would be appropriate for a guy to wear the Evelyn ?

    Thanks so much in advance.
