That is the most retarded thing I've ever heard of.

Some people really do have more money than sense.

Checked the site.
No such thing.
And it's not looking like that is the sort of tripe Jill would carry.
Nice try (insert name of catty adversarial designer here)

Jesus her website is awful...

I'll bet if you dipped one in water and placed the buyer inside, they couldn't punch their way out of it.

I did a Google search and turned up this NY Post article that includes a picture of the bag, although I still couldn't find it on the site - probably removed if they don't plan on making more and it is being mocked in the news.

/Bonus: it's a man-purse

The linked article says the purse "looks like" a brown paper bag. So, whatever.

And seeing as how some purses are really expensive (I guess), regardless of what they look like, I have to come to the conclusion that...

A - I don't care
&
2 - I don't have a problem with this

1. Go to the website
2. Click "Online Store"
3. Click Man at the top
4. There's a picture ot it for "Shop The Look"
5. The black version is in the other "Shop The Look"

If you click shop the look, you see several bags in the slide show.. None of which appear to be for sale.
Also not for sale? That stupid whale sweater.

Wait. Here it is...

it's a handbag for guys?


Guys who don't have pockets?

or for guys who don't wear pant's

Does it explain how they work?

The American dream.

Wonder if it would reduce the possibility of muggings when you have high-value shiat to carry around. Then again, probably no more than a farking PLAIN BROWN PAPER BAG.

pic is avail from linked article:

The important thing about the bag is that it's obvious to certain people that you paid $300 for the bag, because, fark it, you're so farking loaded that all you do all day is think up amusing and conspicuous ways to spend money.

so what neural pathways do I need to sever to come up with ideas like that?

Miss out on your brown bag? You can always spend $1,005 on the transparent jacket, also known as a garbage bag.

It is morally wrong to allow a fool to keep his/her money.

1. Look for the holes at the sides of the bag, near the bottom.
2. Mug the person with the bag.
3. Throw bag in pile of other brown paper bags until the heat dies down.
4. Sell bag on craigslist for 50 bucks.
5. Profit

Am I doing it right?

Prove someone has ever actually purchased it or stop giving them free publicity for obvious publicity stunt.
