Classic style
I've purchased a few MbMJ bags and this was my first non-leather purchase, so I was a little trepidatious. That said, the bag had garnered some really good reviews on other department store websites, so I took the plunge and purchased the 'Smoke' bag, which I thought was the most neutral, work-suitable colour for me. The bag is really lovely. It's well-made, the PVC isn't cheap-looking at all, and I loved the gold embossed lining and quality hardware (typical of all MbMJ bags). The bag is very roomy, the two compartments are both well-sized (would work for a student who wanted a more classy day bag, if you can live without doing the bag up) and I liked the central pocket for putting in documents/wallet for security. The bag is best suited to being carried at the elbow or as a shoulder-bag, using the long strap. A fabulous bag, improved only by its current sale price!

Lovely!
Bag is a fantastic size for work - big enough for an A4 diary and paperwork (and a small laptop/iPad if you're so inclined), as well as all the bits and pieces I like to carry with me day-to-day. Leather is quite stiff (I'm used to the Classic Q range, which isn't very structured) which makes for a bag that will hold its shape. It's quite an unusual style, so a nice addition for anyone who likes to have a variety of bags to choose from! Only downside is that it doesn't have a clip/magnetic closure up top, and because it's quite structured leather, the drawstring opening isn't the easiest to close. That said, leather does tend to soften and relax with time, so that mightn't be a problem for long. All in all, another lovely MbMJ bag. You really can't go wrong with him! This is my fifth MbMJ, and I've always been really pleased with the quality leather and construction of his bags. Am contemplating getting the orange while it's on sale... :)
