    Thumbs up Does anyone have a B. Makowsky bag?

    Just curious if anyone owns a Bruce Makowsky bag. I have been seeing a lot of them lately on QVC. Some of them look very nice, but I found myself liking very few of the styles, or at least the ones I saw on QVC.

    The today's special value they had. It was a good buy, I suppose. I just did not like the style, but so many people obviously did. Not sure if anyone on here saw it. His bags are supposed to be very good quality and the glove leather supposedly feels incredible. I just don't know how practical the bags would be. I heard the leather is not really protected and if you get something on it, you are screwed.

    I'm glad my new bag has that very soft feeling too it, but I just wonder what B. Makowsky bags really feel like. They make SUCH a big deal over it on QVC.

    So, does anyone on here own one? Do they live up to what they claim to be? I may consider purchasing one in future if I ever can afford it.

    Yes, i own a B. Makowsky belted eden shopper. The leather is everything they claim it is. It is butter soft and comparable to many of the really expensive brand leathers.
    If you protect the bag with leather protectant (which you would do for any pricey bag), i don't see any reason why it should get messed up.

    I love my bag. it looks classy and is really soft and smooshy. My only complaint though is that it is heavy, even when empty. So if you like to lug around a lot, better make sure you get a bag that does not weigh you down.

    I don't have a bag from this brand but that's only because it is not available where I live. I've heard a lot of great comments about it, the fact that it has great leather and design, great value for your buck.
    The only slightly negative thing I've heard is that some designs have hardware (mostly feet) that has fallen off (does not happen to all design or all bags of the same design). However, apparently the CS is pretty good, they will replace the hardware for free.
    I think they sometimes are found in TKMaxx? at a pretty good price so if you live somewhere near the store, you can check it out IRL

    i have the belted shopper that FedUp has, but in purple -- and boy is it a beautiful shade of deep royal purple!
    however, just as she said, the bag is h.e.a.v.y.
    if i carry it shopping or for prolonged period of time, my back and neck hurt and i get a headache from the weight.
    hmmmm... maybe something RED next

    Yep! same here. Did not realize when i bought it just how heavy it could get. last time i carried it for a few hours, my shoulder hurt so bag (and i am used to carrying kids...LOL) i started to just carry it by the drop handle almost hitting the ground!!!!

    I don't own one but have seen a few at Marshall's & TJMaxx and yes, the leather is incredibly soft.

    I love the belted shopper, FedUp & chickie! Too bad it's heavy.

    That isn't good. I already have back issues, so I'm guessing this particular purse would be a wrong choice. I haven't carried my new one that much, and I'm hoping considering the size, it will not hurt my shoulder or anything that much. It seems pretty light actually.

    I love belted shoppers though. Do you happen to have a pic of the B. Makowsky Belted Shopper. Does anyone, or maybe another belted handbag of his? I was wondering if he had any belted shoppers or bags. I haven't seen one yet. Of course, if its that heavy, probably wouldn't ever buy it.

    For some reason slipped my mind you posted the link of your bag. Just from the pic, that doesn't really look like the kind I belted shopper I would would want. Actually when I first saw it, didn't even think of it has a belted bag. It's very nice though.
