Do you like tan? I generally don’t. I passed up on buying a very cute sweater today because the only color it came in was tan, and even though I tried it on and tried to convince myself that I like it, tan just doesn’t work for me. I’m not sure if it has something to do with the undertones in my skin or if I’m just far too used to looking at myself in black and grey when I choose a neutral, but the preponderance of tan clothing out there seems to indicate that most people don’t have the same problem.

And if you’re one of those people who wear tan with reckless abandon, then the ROMYGOLD Weave Hobo might be a strong contender for your spring weekend bag. Or maybe not, if you’re not into random strips of leather.

In a lot of ways, I think I’m really close to liking this hobo. The top cuff with the weaving detail is a nice touch without impugning the bag’s structure, and it looks like it would be easy to carry this design with a casual outfit. I even kind of like the multiple buckled straps that wrap around the sides, but the seemingly random pieces of…giant fringe? Is that what that is? Those aren’t good. Buy through ShopBop for $560.

    To the best of my recollection, I don’t think that I own any tan bags as well.
    I like the bag, but what is up with the strap? This is like the 5th handbag that I have seen with inadequate shoulder straps.

    Agreed! That strap looks way too short for this bag and overall it looks kinda heavy. I like the color, but not really the design.

    I like the shape, but I don’t wear tan either.


    I agree! I am not a tan person at all, don’t wear tan and am a black and grey person. I agree with the other comment, the strap is too short- you wear it up on your shoulder and it gets in your way!

    I don’t ‘do’ tan but I also don’t like the woven fold down neck of the bag… I know I keep mentioning strength of handles, but really are those little gold loops going to last the distance. I like the random strips of leather and the buckles around the waist of the bag BUT I would like it in maybe a fun color !

    I can do tan, but this bag has too much going on here!
