J. Crew Biennial Hobo in Red

Hi Everyone!

I've been eyeing the J. Crew Biennial Hobo since it appeared on the website.  Initially, I purchased the Biennial Satchel in Red, but that bag is huge.  So, I decided to try the Hobo.  I LOVE this bag.

Here are a few IRL pictures of the bag:



The bag has two really sturdy straps:


And, a picture of the inside of the bag; it's really spacious:


A picture of the bag on my shoulder:


And, a closer picture of the color of the bag:


What do you think of the J. Crew Biennial Hobo in Red?  Do tell!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hi, I bought this bag in the bright blue color (can't recall the official name) and I love it also. I'm thinking about getting it in the tan color as well. I just wish it would go on sale!

  4. The red is lovely. I am a big fan of pebbled leather- I think it wears so well. Enjoy it!

    1. KnitYarns: I agree, this red is really lovely. I think that J. Crew does color better than any other retailer. Like you, I really like pebbled leather.

  5. That bag is so pretty, but still too big for me. J. Crew's pebbled leather bags wear really well. I bought the Baby Brompton in the pebbled Blue Sea color, but I haven't used it yet, but I have the pebbled Marceau purse and the finish on the leather is wonderful. It's gotten rained on and you can't even tell. It could use a wash, but I am not sure how to wash it. A J. Crew sales associate told me they use baby wipes to clean off their purses, but I am afraid to do that without more people telling me that it doesn't damage the bag. Have you or anyone else tried this to clean J. Crew's pebbled leather bags? Enjoy your beautiful new bag!

    1. cate - I've used baby wipes on leather, but not a J Crew bag, specifically. You could test it on the bottom before hitting the main body of the bag. Then use protectant spray.

  8. I noticed what looks like a magnetic closure on the outside of the bag (seen in the top-down photo) - does the zipper snap into that to keep it closed? And how deep are the zippered pockets? I'm wondering if you could keep an iPad zippered in there. Your reviews are helpful - thanks!
