B. Makowsky Ollie Hobo | Casual Weathered Fabric Handbag

Posted on: Apr 5

B. Makowsky Ollie HoboB. Makowsky's ditched his usual leather for fabric to create this casual Ollie satchel.

While soft materials are often regarded as leather's poor cousins, I don't feel shortchanged by the fabric. Its weathered finish reminds me of denim, and it shares the same casual appeal. The material takes focus in what's otherwise a fairly safe design. B. Makowsky's usually so trend focused, so it's refreshing to see him create a bag that's made to serve.

There's a quartet of pockets up front, and a handy phone pocket on the back. I really like this, because we should feel our cell vibrating against our body even if we don't hear it ring. The interior is every bit as smart, with a zippered envelope dividing the main compartment into three easy to manage sections.

I respect B. Makowsky's decision to use fabric rather than a more luxurious leather, but I'm disappointed he hasn't passed any of the savings on to us. At $228, this satchel costs roughly the same price as B. Makowsky's leather bags. While I love the bag, it should be about half the price. Before indulging I'd wait for a sale!
