hi! i'm undecided on these two gorgeous bags! which would you choose? i need one in black- i tried the maxi but it was very long and boxy on me. i haven't tried the large messenger yet but am also worried about the long strap and how practical it will be to use if i shorten it with the ribbon. let the voting/comments begin!! thanks for your help!!! :biggrin:

If you have the money....I say get both...

I'm starting to think that I should get the maxi (if it ever comes in) and a small messenger...

I think the title of this thread is theeeeee ongoing debate in more than a few PFers brains....including mine lol

Wish they would arrive in stores in the colors I'm craving so I can end this tug-of-war in my mind :P

Can't wait to see which one u decide to get! GL

^Sorry, those pics did nothing to make me decide one way or another. If anything, it just makes me want both even more, haha!

Maxi for sure! :graucho:

While the messenger is really cute, the too-long chain length on all sizes is a turn-off for me.

Maxi for sure. altho u can double up the chain for the messenger, in time to come, the chain will "dig" into the sides of the flap that the leather will rub off.
