Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It This bag is so soft I love it. The leather as well as the calf hair itself is very soft. It also holds it's shape really well and the strap is adjustable so you can have it be crossbody or shorten it to just hang off of one shoulder. Definitely worth the purchase!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from An alright everyday bag Received my bag today and a tad disappointed. Resembles the photo but I had imagined the leather to be of better quality- it's flimsy and a little cheap looking tbh. Granted, I did buy this on sale but had I been able to see it in person I wouldn't have made the purchase. Overall its a nice design, if it was made with better materials it would definitely be a 5 star.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag! I all ready have the Manchester cross body in black but I wanted another color. It's perfect for date night but also daytime. It's far roomier than I ever imagined. I carry a small wallet, iphone6,compact, lipstick , keys, credit card case and small make up bag. Madewell you did it again!!! I am a fan

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to i have been looking for the simplistic cross body for almost a year, i wanted something very minimal with a little something special, this bag was the answer to my prayers, I'm so glad i decided to look on the sale page, i only wish i had made it in time to get the spotted dot design, the calf hair is so soft and feels of great quality, this bag really holds up its shape and i hope they restock the spotted calf design, 10/10 recommend

Rated 3 out of 5 by from calf hair rubbed off i bought this bag, and was super excited to use it, however after probably the first or second use, the calf hair began falling off the bag, and leaving a lighter leather color behind (i got the spotted calf color, so this might not happen for the solid black one) However i still use the bag daily, and it had kept its shape very nicely (Im just a little bummed about the calf hair situation)
