I've noticed B. Makowsky handbags appearing on the lunchtimes special on occasion, but I haven't noticed his products on any of the regular shows. Is his line being phased out?

I certainly hope so.

Ditto. He is such a dud and the handbags are not any better.

I think his handbags are really nice- but they're SO HEAVY. With the amount of stuff I carry, my handbags needs to be light.

Q was overkill having him on for a long time, it seemed to be daily! It was really too much.

Initially, his handbags were relatively nice. The quality suffered over the years and even among some of his older bags, there were issues... He and the Q got in, made a bundle, saturated the market and got out... The brand isn't actually his and hasn't been for some time, as it was sold, along with KVZ and Tig to an Asian conglomerate a number of years ago.

We were inundated with B Mak bags for a couple years, and a lot of the styles were redundant.

Now, we're being inundated with Oryany and Dooney bags.

I wonder what's next ... {#emotions_dlg.unsure}

Probably being replaced with GILI handbags.

I still like all my B Mac bags, all three of them, mine are the ones that were made well.

I have a nice B Mak bag I use all of the time. It is very nice.

I have probably 10 B. Mak bags. Some from QVC, others from Dillards. I haven't had any problem with them. One of my top 5 bags, and I hate to admit I probably have about 50 bags, is a B.Mak one. It has the organization I need without being too big. I liked it so much in the black, that when it was an LTS about 18 months ago in white, I bought it.
