The Manchester Crossbody Bag in Leather

The Manchester Crossbody Bag in Leather is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm obsessed I love this purse so much! I fell in love with it in store but didn't buy it. 3 days later I was still thinking about it so I bit the bullet and ordered it online and I'm so glad I did. The thai chili color is to die for and the leather is good quality and sturdy. The strap is the perfect length for a crossbody and I love the structured look of the purse. Love love love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic, cool, compact The unique, bold shape and color (Thai Chili red) of the Manchester Crossbody bag are what initially drew me to it. This bag is top quality and keeps its color and shape with use. The one compartment design is perfect for stashing plenty of things for a day in the city or a night out. The inner and outer slip pocket are perfect for keeping track of go-to items. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect little bag I bought this bag because I needed something smaller to hold all my things together without me having to search for it in an endless black hole my other bags tend to be. The quality of this bag is amazing! It fits my keys, a small moleskin planner, my phone, a compact, lipstick, and my wallet perfectly. I love the structure of the bag. Def my new daily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So in love with this! At first I wanted the red chili, but it was Christmas time and showed on the website that that color cannot be personalized, so I went for HTHR CAROB, which is a good call, for the color goes with everything. It's seems to be a small cross-body, yet it holds a lot and it is just super stylish. I can fit my phone, a wallet, lipstick, huge chain of keys, and a tiny umbrella in it. Really cute one that can go with every style. With the monogram, it is one of a kind. I have been getting a lot of compliment from friends. Can't miss it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my needs! Love the size and detail. Can be dressed up or down as well. I may need to add another hole to lengthen the strap to fit over my down coat, but overall great length and can easily hold my small wallet, iPhone, lipstick and tissues. Madewell comes through again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Obsessed I am seriously obsessed with this little bag. I have it in the deep wine color and it is so pretty! It's the perfect little size - it fits my wallet, phone, and a few other little things. I LOVE it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not for bigger girls This is a nice quality bag and it can hold a surprising amount, but the strap length is simply too short even when it's on the last notch. I have a large chest and if I wear this as a crossbody, the bag lands on my side between my chest and my waist. So I have to wear is just on my one side and not as a crossbody. I was really disappointed in that. That being said, Madewell does list the length in the description, so I should have done my research first! I hope future crossbody bags come with more slack though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile piece for day or night I wear this bag as an everyday bag and it transitions nicely to a night-out bag as well. Beautiful bag, but must have received one with faulty zipper pull tabs. The leather zipper pulls on my bag were partially cut when I received it, causing them to tear when pulling on them. I just replaced them with a keychain and ribbon, which personalized the bag more but was expecting higher quality for such a beautiful leather bag.
