did you use the outside pockets? I have a Marc Jacobs Blake. I've never used the pushlock pockets on it. they're too small to be worth it and not using them helps keep the gold HW from getting scratchedI love this-the Took tote. I had this at one point but sold because I had another bag in the same color. The hardware on the pockets made noise if left open, if I remember. But the leather was softer, making this mold to the body when carrying. I loved the pockets. I would buy again!
