Over the years I've found that I don't care for... Suede handles because they show wear quickly and badly. Light-colored materials because they get dirty in a heartbeat. Basic and cheap materials (like a simple striped canvas) mixed with leather for a lot of $$$. Super trendy. Flaps because it's just something I have to move out of the way. Worthless pockets on the outside. No pockets of any type on the inside--especially with slouchy hobos. Lambskin.
