That's too bad. A real shoulder strap is a necessity for me as I am constantly needing one for things like whenI get home from work/gym and need to grab my mail and any packages from my concierge. In these scenarios I wear the strap across my chest over to the opposite shoulder.
Holding a bag's handles over my shoulder just reminds me of a woman going to the beach carrying a tote. I'm envisioning the bag being all up in my arm pit area by the looks from these photos which means I couldn't strap it over to my opposite shoulder.
