The petrol (blue-gray) color used for this leather hobo bag is stunning. It is a toned down blue, which makes it easy to wear often. But the two turnlock fastening pockets on the front of the Marc by Marc Jacobs Faridah Hobo Bag resemble the backside of someone wearing jeans, which is a negative attribute in a handbag. The hobo shape adds a slouchy feel and there is a zip fastening pocket at the top, one shoulder strap, brass hardware, and canvas lining. Can you look past the human like front pockets, or is it grabbing your attention in a bad way also? It is unfortunate, because I like front pockets. Just not sure they work out well on this bag. Buy through NAP for $438.
