If I walked into your office carrying this bag

What would your first thought be? Too loud? Too big? Great bag to fit everything in?

I wouldn’t really have an opinion confused

Looks like a bag I'd take to the beach

Angrypregnantlady Fri 16-Apr-21 15:06:08

Wouldn't even notice it.

FallenSky Fri 16-Apr-21 15:06:19

I wouldn't think much of anything to be honest. It's a bag.

Geamhradh Fri 16-Apr-21 15:06:46

Bit old fashioned. Looks a bit like a "carpet bag" type of thing.
I would probably just think though (if I thought at all) that people have different tastes. I'd certainly not think it cost £350!

I don't think it is the type of bag that would really elicit a response from me. It's surely just a fairly standard work type bag unless you work somewhere very very conservative where everyone has a traditional briefcase. If you told me what it cost I would think you had been robbed as it certainly doesn't look as expensive as it is.

Beach bag! Not really office material unless it’s a v sunny day.

Swearwolf Fri 16-Apr-21 15:07:21

It looks nice enough but like others, I'm not sure I would pay much attention. £350 for a bag though!!!

idontlikealdi Fri 16-Apr-21 15:07:26

Not much it's just a bag - and I like bags!

After a bit more consideration if you started pulling out a laptop / daybook / cables that you'd probably have a sore back.

ToryStelling Fri 16-Apr-21 15:07:42

Depends on your work environment! It’s not ‘my style’ but I do like it, and it definitely looks practical enough.

The fully open design would be my only concern, more so if commuting on public transport.

ForensicFlossy Fri 16-Apr-21 15:07:46

I like it but it wouldn't make me form any kind of opinion.

TheGumption Fri 16-Apr-21 15:08:02

I wouldn't notice it

DontGoIntoTheLongGrass Fri 16-Apr-21 15:08:32

I wouldn't notice tbh. Nice bag though.

MrsElijahMikaelson1 Fri 16-Apr-21 15:08:46

Nice bag but too many £££‘a for it

Dishwashersaurous Fri 16-Apr-21 15:08:46

Err its a bag!

Unless you are a funeral director then its fine

FabulouslyFab Fri 16-Apr-21 15:08:48

It’s just a bag. Not my style so I’d probable not think much. We do have to carry a lot of stuff about so most of us have big bags - some with wheels 😂

YellowFish1647 Fri 16-Apr-21 15:09:05

I’d call security - you don’t work for my employer and have no authorisation to be on the premises.

Floralnomad Fri 16-Apr-21 15:09:17

It’s a bag , I don’t ever notice what bags other people have . I wouldn’t personally buy it as it’s not my thing .

SeaTurtles92 Fri 16-Apr-21 15:09:19

Wouldn't notice.
Definitely not too loud it's just white and blue with a pattern.

PrincessMaryaBolkonskaya Fri 16-Apr-21 15:09:21

That bag looks quite big. If you need it that big won’t it be heavy and therefore give you a dreadfully sore neck? It would me but I don’t know how old you are, how far you have to walk, how much is in it.

It’s not to my taste but everyone where I work just lugs around rucksacks. Which I don’t expect would be to your taste!

SomeLovers Fri 16-Apr-21 15:09:27

I would think it’s a fairly standard office bag, it’s not too loud imo.

vodkaredbullgirl Fri 16-Apr-21 15:09:27

biscuit

bananapumpkin Fri 16-Apr-21 15:09:44

Honestly, it looks a bit gauche to me. But not to the point of unprofessional, so if you like it, go for it!

QuietBatPeople1 Fri 16-Apr-21 15:10:04

@Geamhradh I thought that as well! Glad I was not alone

@korawick12345 another thought I had- the price tag vs the look
