Jimmy Choo It’s really a shame that the one time Jimmy Choo makes a bag that doesn’t cost a bazillion dollars, it’s as bland and kinda cheap-looking. The Jimmy Choo Metallic Hobo has very little personality – one of its only points of visual interest is a simple exposed seam down the middle that holds together the two big pieces of leather. And it’s not even a contrast-stitched seam.

Perhaps its just the color, but does the leather look super thin and maybe a bit vinyl-like to anyone else? Maybe sorta like the PVC that they makes Target bags out of? Because that’s how it’s reading to me, and there is no situation in which that is a compliment to the bag. And if they’re going to have a bag this simple (read: boring) then they’ve really got to bring their A-game as far as leather goes, don’t you think? Gorgeous, thick, smooshy leather could have saved them and gotten a good review, particularly at this price point. But this bag looks entirely like an afterthought, and who wants to pay a grand for that? Buy through Saks for $1095.

    Now, I love this bag! It also comes in metallic black which will be my next Choo. I love the size and shape and the little metal nameplate on the side. It also has a strap that goes beneath the bag that can’t be seen here. And the interior is leopard print! This is my favorite of the new pre fall bags so far!!

    Oops…the lining is snakeskin, not leopard which is even better!

    I like the simplicity of this bag… too much going on with a metallic can quickly become gaudy but…. the price… no thanks!

    Just had to come back to drool…

    Does anyone know if there is anything to do with the straps for the Metallic Hobo Bag? For instance, can you adjust the shoulder strap? Also, there is a buckle and strap fastened by two snaps at the bottom of the bag… Can the be undone and reattached somewhere else – or is it just for decoration?

    I’ve seen this bag in both shades (champagne and black) and they’re like night and day. The champagne looks tacky (ugh) but I own and love the black metallic leather version!

    Desiree, I had the same question. I don’t think there’s anything to be done with the bottom strap. It’s mostly just for decoration and contrast. However, you can adjust it for size.

    I have this bag in silver. he straps at the bottom of the bag are for effect. It looks very chic when the bag is carried. The simple style goes with many different outfits.
