Thank you so much PURSEMAVEN. I just see this message right now. Sorry for the late THANKYOU!The brief measures 17 1/2 x 14 1/2 x 3 1/2. It is more like a tote bag. It is large. Also, they made the handles a little longer so you can wear it on your shoulder. They did this with the city also. And to Weitsengl, yes, I thought the natural looked the best in the city with the large hardware. They have the natural in the city at the NY Boutique.
