GOOD THINGS COME IN GREAT PACKAGES.

Obviously.



Since I hadn't bought a new bag in exactly 2 years (on october 13th) - I know this because this was the day I went to London for the first time in my life - I thought I'd treat myself to something nice. Wait I can hear you think: "What? 2 years?" Contrary to what some of you might think, I am not a shopaholic. At all. I am not an impulse buyer, I only buy the stuff I really need, and really really like. So guess what happened when I browsed the Jas M.B. collection...



I knew I needed a bag that would be big enough to carry all my stuff, but still be easy to carry around. So, after a lot of consideration and doubting, I decided to go for the 80%Wings model in black (seriously, there are SO many choices of leather to choose from!). I knew the quality of the bag would be more than OK since I already own a Jas M.B. bag - a backpack which I have used on a daily basis for the past 4 years, still in great shape!



I did however end up ordering my bag through Browns and not the Jas M.B. website. Browns doesn't have all the styles in stock, but all I did was contact the Browns Focus store, told them what I wanted and they ordered the bag directly at Jas M.B. for me. My bespoke order took 2-3 weeks to make and then it was shipped off to me! (Customer service gets an A+!)



The Wings model has 2 handles on the top, but comes with 2 straps, a short leather one and a longer canvas strap to carry it cross-body. I know I am going to love this bag for many years to come!




I'm sorry if this post comes over a bit like an advertisement - believe me I wasn't sponsored by Jas M.B.! Though if anyone at Jas M.B. reads this: I wouldn't mind!

perfect timing! i'd been debating whether to get the wings traveller for my birthday and this is the clincher.

i looked at the small and it still looks quite large, would you say the 80% is sufficient to carry school books?

Hot. I love how functional it is. I need a good functional bag. My Surface to Air bag from last year is so lurvely but it's like carrying around bricks.

AMAZING investment piece. Browns are super efficient and can't do enough to help.
Hope you enjoy it as much as we did reading your blog.
