The first thing that struck me about the LAMB Martindale Hobo is that it’s much more muted and understand that many of L.A.M.B‘s bags, which are usually characterized by bright patterns or images and contrasting colors. But bag is almost entirely made of black matte leather, and I didn’t even realize who had made it when I first stumbled across it.
The second thing that struck me was that it kind of reminds me of the Orlando Magic’s baskbetball uniforms. The bag is mostly black with a shock of cobalt blue and some white piping – it’s got an almost athletic feel to it, doesn’t it? It would be a more convincing comparison if the black leather was perforated, but even though it isn’t, it still feels that way to me. I’m not sure if it’s the white piping that’s throwing me off, or maybe it’s the piping mixed with the bright blue trim. Either way, it’d be a great bag if your favorite sports team wears these colors. If not, it’s still probably an okay purchase. Buy through Nordstrom for $259.90
