I have my Neverfull MM with me.... from the top of the purse to the top of the strap at it's highest point, it's approximately 8 inches or so. I think the leather staps can stretch slightly.... when I first got the Neverfull, I put several water bottles inside the purse and hung the purse on my door knob to stretch the handles for a bit more strap drop. I think it worked....
Maybe he misunderstood you.... the measurements for the MM are:Ok. THANKS! Yeah, the guy on Eluxury.com live chat just told me the Neverfull drop strap is 6.5". That seemed too short for me. What do you think..think he is incorrect possibly? I don't think he actually had the bag there to measure. Just read off a chart! THANKS again!!!!!
Maybe he misunderstood you.... the measurements for the MM are:
12.5"x 11.5"x 6.5" (height x length x width/depth).
Maybe that's where the person saw 6.5 inches?
You can definitely put the Neverfull MM on your shoulder.
The Neverfull PM has a shorter strap drop - it's difficult for me to put it on my shoulder.
I tried the Monty GM at the store on my shoulder and I didn't think the shoulder drop was enough inches to be comfortable. The Monty sticks out a bit but I guess you can "crush" it with your arm closer to your body but it seemed a bit awkward to me although I do like the shape of the Monty and that it's a zippered purse.
But, I love my MOCA Neverfull MM and I look forward to eventually buying a Damier Neverfull MM - I guess in 2009!
I don't think you'll have any problems with the Neverfull MM strap drop. I use my bag all the time on my shoulder and love it!! As I mentioned earlier, I also put some water bottles in my Neverfull when I first got it and hung it on the door knob overnight and it seemed to stretch just a bit more which I was happy with! I actually might have hung it overnight on the door knob twice.
You can also clip the metal things on either side of the Neverfull to keep the sides closed since the leather sliders tend to fall down and don't stay up very well. I just use a couple of little LV keychains that I already own to clip the Neverfull bag but you could always use other charms with a lobster claw clip or buy a two lobster claw clips at your local arts & crafts store.
I also use a base shaper on the inside bottom of my Neverfull because I don't like it to sag. I bought the base shaper on ebay but you can also just cut out a few pieces of cardboard to fit the inside of the Neverfull to use as support - just be sure to round the edges of cardboard corners so that they are not pointy right angles.
I see Duran Duran on your avatar!! Are you a big DD fan? I have concert tickets to see them in May!! Duran Duran was my very first concert when I was a teenager - 7 and the Ragged Tiger tour!! (I'm showing my age!) My favorite is Roger!!
I tried the Neverfull at a LV store, and I thought it was short for me too. I like my strap drop to be at least 10" but it's really a challenge finding an LV tote bag with that strap drop. They are usually shorter. I ended up getting a saumur because you can wear it as a messenger or double it, and it becomes a shoulder bag!
Alright, I will spill the beans and tell ya I'm 36! Who won? (kidding..of course)Yeah, not sure why I never ended up going to any of their concerts....but you should have seen my bedroom when I was like in middle school. You couldn't see the actual wall itself because I had wallpapered my room with sooo many Duran 2 posters! I was a TOTAL Duranie.Congrats on your new Neverfull MM! I think you'll like it - the strap length will be fine!
I think I'm a few years older than you because I was around 13 or so when I went to my first concert ever (DD). Anyways, seeing DD in L.A., so unfortunately, we won't be able to meet..... I've seen DD several times when I was younger as well as now -most recently was just a few years ago when all of the original members got back together - I think I went to 3 concerts during that time frame - the best was at Staples Center in L.A. and also a small club show in San Diego (I think only about 300 people!) One of my friends who I've know since elementary school flew down to stay with me and see all three reunion concerts! She also was with me when I saw DD for the first time as a teen!! Very nostalgic!
Have a great time at the concert!! (But, don't bring your new Neverfull to the concert - got to watch out for people spilling drinks while walking around or on the floor of the concert venue!)
