It has stitches including on the back. It's about the size of a Speedy 30 with 3 compartments, 2 open and one in the middle with 2 zippers that meet in the middle. I think there was a cell phone holder in one of the compartments. It's a very busy bag and I can imagine why it wouldn't be likeable to some. I don't think it had rivets on the straps, but they fit me so that I can use it as a shoulder bag as well as a handheld. Since my collection needs something 'interesting' I said yay to it. It'll be mine on the 15th. My SA showed me the pochette version as well. This one's cute, more minimalist in a rivets kind of way lol.
