I was just perusing old entries and adding tags (new feature on macbebekin — thanks MT!) when I stumbled upon this one about denying JM a new Crumpler bag. Ah, the foolish days of non-velcro totes and messenger bags. So happy we gave in.
I bought this one in Melbourne on our last trip down south. It replaced an old worn out Levi’s zipperless tote that had been my book bag for German class. I do miss the soft suede interior of that bag, but this one has ample room at the bottom for lost keys, a long pouch on one side and two on the other, all with velcro tabs to keep the contents from rattling about. I love it and the color, a dark brownish black. “Gunmetal” the salesperson insisted. Whatever, is nice, I like. I hesitated because of the large stitched logo on the front, but turn it around and it’s no longer a walking billboard.
