That white one is beautiful..

My Chrome just has some extra reflectors and webbing loops sewn on... mildly custom, I guess.
I had to use an industrial sewing machine to put them there.

dommer that bag is so 'effing kicka$$. although you can't see me now (or can you?) i'm sporting some jersey pride here in SF in the form of a black tee that reads "New Jersey - Only the Strong Survive"

god bless that little state i love so much to hate. i can't hardly wait to never move back there.

oh, and that white bag up there is pretty t&a also, but i can't say it makes me pee a little. maybe too much coffee mplsminx?

I have been a witness of this bag and it's the sweetest thing ever sewn. Jesse, have you carried Madeline in it yet?

After a baby, apparently, all bladder control is lost. I hear.

The bag is waterproof (the liner is an old outdoor tablecloth). But I haven't tried to carry Madeline in it yet. Wee Maruke is still a bit too young for that.

my bag isn't a messenger bag [just a ten year old caterpillar record bag] and the only customising on it are some slashes and holes that mean i can't carry anything smaller than a packet of cigarettes in it.

but that bag with the cherry blossom is stunning.
