You have created a truly beautiful product - functional, incredibly well made and just gorgeous. I’ve carried it every day and it only looks better and better. Now a very loyal Bryker Hyde customer!
I bought the Buffalo Brown Messenger bag for a lobbying trip to Washington DC. I got many compliments on my bag. During travel I used the sling and when I was in my suit I put it in briefcase mode. The buffalo brown leather did leave brown streaks on my jeans where it rubbed against my leg but it washed away no problem. This is pretty normal when this type of leather is new. I initially bought the medium because I didn’t want a large bag. It turned out to not be big enough so I ordered the large one which is perfect. I ended up not returning because it was not worth the shipping for me to return. I would rather have a second bag. If you plan on carrying a laptop (even a small one) get the large messenger bag. If you’re a minimalist and don’t have any electronic devices larger than an iPad mini or don’t have a folio you need to carry around the medium should be fine. If you are unsure just get the large (trust me!)
I have owned my Buffalo Brown bag for three weeks and I honestly don't know how I survived without it! This is the highest quality bag I've ever found. I have been searching for a new bag and I am happy to report I have found my BFF of work bags! There are perfectly placed creative features like the manila folder-sized pocket on the outside and card/phone/key holders inside. Thank you to this creative team of guys who braved the coldest Dallas day of the year to set up shop at the traveling Christmas light maze to bring to me this most loved possession. It gets noticed and I rave about it to all that want to hear of its greatness!
