New MAB Owner Question About the Rings in Front...

  1. I just received my FIRST RM bag today, a MAB in black with pewter metallic trim. I absolutely love it and can't wait to wear it out. I have a question about the hardware ring in the front and bag of the bag (above the outside pocket). Are these just decorative, or are the meanth to be hooks for a cross-body or over the shoulder strap? Just curious.

    Thanks in advance, all!
     
  2. I think they could be used as hooks for an across the body strap. My MAM is too smooshy though and when I tried it the bag twisted a little because the rings are on opposite sides of the zipper and it just looked like I was hurting the bag. There is a thread where people have tried every possible strap configuration so I would search for that if you are interested. Personally I would undo the lobster claws and try attaching a strap to those and see what happens if you are interested in wearing it across the body. Hope that helps.
     
  3. i am not a fan of the straps so i just think of it as cute hardware!
     
  4. Thanks ladies. I just wasn't sure if they were meant for that or not, especially because the bag did not come with an extra strap.

    :smile:
     
  5. they don't come with them unfortunately, but if you wanted one you could order it from the RM site under "shop" then go to accessories. ;)
     
  6. How about clip a cute little bag charm on the ring? That could be a nice idea.:smile:
     
  7. How about one of the cute bag chains sold on RM's site? They're currently sold out and I check the site everyday for them. Bag jewelry! :P
     
  8. ^^i definitely like the chain!

    TATERTOT puts charms on her RM's! i love it, i think its adorable. Now i need to find a cute one!
     
  9. yup i like the chain too. darn didn't know they were sold out. i was going to get one for my mam basketweave
     
  10. Shopbopchic- Catalina said they expect to get more in a month or so, maybe you could put in an order for one~
     
  11. I forgot about the chains. I like them.
     
  12. I use it to clip my keys to when I'm just running in some place really quickly. (You have to use a keychain with a clip, like Coach's or Hayden-Harnett's).
     
  13. The rings are for a long cross-body strap, I have one on my black MAB.
