That does look annoying. Wat ever happened to the nice solid bag with well attached and thick handles that would allow you to carry things with little trouble. Yet another reason to buy things over the internets so my idiot of a mail carrier can deliver it to the neighbors or just not deliver it all making me go the fucking post office to pick it up. If murder were legal he would be first on the list.
Maybe women are the new men, maybe even firefighters. 11:00, how about those wild ones in California and the Kenai Peninsula.
Anthony Hecht, welcome to the man purse!
(Or murse if you prefer)
The Apple Store does the same thing, only it's bags look more like a backpack or laundry sack, not quite as purse-y, at least IMHO. I still don't like em though. Give us a simple bag people!
Don't fire them, just tell them to shorten the rope. But I have to say that the last time I shopped at the Levi's store, my bag didn't look like that one does. My bag was plastic, which is not good for the environment.
dear levi's store,
when are you going to make clothes that don't suck or fall apart again. you used to make your jeans in america. they were made by people that knew how jeans should fit. now two pairs of the exact same # style will be made in sweatshops in thailand and haiti, and neither will fit correctly. what's up with that Levi's? could you fix that and come back to america so we can have decent jeans again? and so we don't feel guilty about your clothes being made by children whom you are not paying a fair wage?
For the record, the ones I got were heche in Mexico.
Thank you for bitching about the bag. It's everyday annoyances like this that drive me crazy.
We don't need to get all arty with the stupid bag handle. Just a sturdy bag handle is fine. They've been making bags for hundreds of years that work fine. If it's not broken, please don't fix it.
Gee Anthony, that is tough man. But speaking of tough: at a hotel in Iraq today 30 people were blowen to pieces in Dan Savages glorious war. Over 2,000,000 million Iraq citizens have left their homes and fled to Syria. But as Dan would say-FREEDOM IS ON THE MARCH!
both plastic and paper are bad for our environment. so do what i do:
leave house w/ no pants on.
purchase pants at store.
wear them home; your hands are now free to carry other things like the bulky iPhone.
I was reading these comments about this bag handle and got to #9 when I wondered, how much longer 'til some douche mentions Iraq.
I hate those fucking string handles. They burn into my hand after a while if I've bought a lot of stuff. I found H&M makes nice bags, with super soft plastic (yeah yeah) handles. One of the key secrets to its friendly construction, I found, is being separately attached ... those one-piece bags are as terrible as these string dealies.
I'm talking about shopping bags, but at least it's in the right thread, ok?
Tie the handle in a knot to shorten it and stop whining
bring your own bag.
Be glad you have hands! In a single American Hospital for war wounded today, while you whine about shopping bags, More than 800 of them have lost an arm, a leg, fingers or toes. More than 100 are blind. Dozens need tubes and machines to keep them alive. Hundreds are disfigured by burns, and thousands have brain injuries and mangled minds.
These are America's war wounded, a toll that has received less attention than the 3,500 troops killed in Iraq. Depending on how you count them, they number between 35,000 and 53,000.
Its a european carry-all
It signals a larger problem than a poorly designed bag. It shows that Levi's doesn't have a good quality control system. A basic principle of design is to test something before release, whether it be a shopping bag, library (especially on how to get from the 4th floor to the 5th), or coffee carafe. Those office carafes that you can't fit a travel mug underneath are especially annoying.
If carrying that bag makes you feel unmanly, how do you deal with your inability to tie a simple overhand knot?
Maybe you should start a support group.
(Yes, it's a lousy design. So cowboy up and solve the problem!)
#14 and 20: I'm embarrassed to say that I never would have thought of that. Then again, I'm a girl and probably would have slung it on my shoulder cause it's less heavy that way.
