Michael Kors Skorpios Large Hobo

I'm all about coffee/chocolate/espresso bags lately. I'm particularly excited to see so many designers offering designs in this color for the fall. The Michael Kors Skorpios Large Hobo is a pretty solid choice for a fall/winter bag, but I'm not entirely sold on it. Neiman Marcus is not providing exact measurements on this one since it's up on the site just for pre-order, but I get the feeling from looking at this photo that the bag would benefit from a bit more height. It looks a bit "fat", and once you put it on your shoulder the weighted tab will only emphasize the fullness of the bag. A few more inches of height and maybe even a couple of more inches in depth would take care of that problem. I suppose I love the proportions of a north/south bag more than east/west ones. They tend to elongate the upper body and draw attention away from those pesky "trouble spots".

I love the weaved detailing on the top handle and tab closure, and the silver-tone hardware looks fab against the coffee brown smooth leather exterior. I don't feel those features will compensate for the predicament I mentioned before. I'm very picky about these sort of details, especially with my chubby arms. I don't want them resting atop a bulky bag when a few more inches of leather could have nipped the problem in the bud. If you like the Skorpios Large Hobo, you can pre-order it for $1395 via Neiman Marcus. Me and my chubby arms will pass on it.
