this is how all the 257's are, there is a mix of both open and closed pockets.i find the open pockets are perfect for my sunglasses case...it fits nicely and doesn't fall out the bottom. i have also used the open pockets to hold a bottle of water, lotion, and a spare laptop battery....as long as the item you are holding is long enough it will extend to to the bottom of the bag and not fall out of place.

I received my cufflinks (design 16) a few days ago. They are fantastic and arrived just a few days after I made the payment. Thanks!!!
Looking for some footwear to go with a new tuxedo. My preference is for patent leather wholecuts...but I could also do somewhat conservative looking velvet slippers. I don't want anything too pointy.
Fantastic shoes, exactly what I have been looking for, but unfortunately a full size too small.
I agree, when I originally posted I didn't think there were that many options for RTW in peak lapel and grosgrian, but now that I have come across several, I'm inclined to reject the more expensive (+$1,000) options like RL and Ben Silver and pick the best of the lower priced options.Manhattan.
