How's the leather like? Smooth and silky or more rubbery? Also, those who has the hobo style....too big? Does it drape nicely? TIA
That was I was afraid of--I'm looking for something slouchy...and relatively simple, no bells and whistles thanks for the input Sparkly & RoeyTo me, the leather feels like a Football (American). I purchased the Hobo a while back, but returned it because as Roey stated, it did not hang right and took on funny shapes. It looked awkward to me because it is supposed to be a slouchy bag, but the leather is too stiff.
Just checked it out Roey, it's so pretty! It would be exactly what I'm looking for if it has a zipper closure on top--I'm finding it harder and harder to find something that's a tote or a hobo, top zipper closure(I travel alot and I'd prefer something that reduces the chances of things falling out)...I was looking at Vintage Ligne Totes, but I can't seem to find any. Thanks againHave you considered the Soft and Chain hobo? There are pics of mine in the reference thread, including a modeling pic so you can see the drape. It's a coated/treated, thick lambskin so although the leather is smooth, it is pretty much scratch-resistant (just don't take a knife to it!). I am really surprised at the durability. The chain is thick but not uncomfortable on the shoulder (at least for me). The only drawback is the lack of a base; it won't sit up so needs to be set down flat when not in use.
