I am writing this review after having owned the Jane for over a year and using it on a daily basis as my primary bag. I requested this for my birthday last year and looked forward to trying out this new bag. Initially, I was a little wary of the material as I have always carried leather bags. Let me say that I now know why the Jane is such a popular bag. It's literally perfect. ;) I didn't really think I would use all of the pockets, but they are great. I especially like the large one as it allows me to put things inside and keep them safe from the rest of the junk floating around in my purse. What I like the best though is that the bag seems to be able to hold whatever I need it to as long as I will it to do so. ;) I got engaged and married since I got the bag, and when I started planning the wedding I would keep a 1/2" binder with me at all times. It fit in the bag with no problems. When that binder got to be too small, I got a 1" binder that I also carried around until I got sick of it being so heavy. I then started using a 5.5" x 8.5" spiral notebook to take notes in (left the binder in the car!) and it fit perfectly in the large outside pocket. I still keep it with me for note taking, and it is not worn/tattered like it would be if it was in the main compartment. Over the past few months, the Jane has really come in handy while traveling. On a work trip, I really didn't think I would need my laptop but didn't want to leave it behind just in case. I decided to take my laptop sleeve out of my work bag and use it to carry my laptop in my Jane. It worked perfectly and there was still plenty of room for everything else I usually carry (huge wallet, wristlet with important cards, keys, and glosses, sunglasses, iPad). Granted, my laptop is about 12", so it is not huge. But I was still pleased that it fit in the Jane and I didn't have to lug my work bag + purse + suitcase. I am also vegan and have been known to travel with food. ;) On a recent cross country flight, I was able to get 2 acai bowls for my husband and me into a pretty good sized insulated/cooled lunch bag and into my Jane...with all my other stuff. Just when you think the bag couldn't hold more, it miraculously does. As for the nylon, I've definitely gotten used to that and the bag still looks great a year later. When I was searching for the right MZ Wallace bag to get, I went back and forth a lot. I like a roomy bag, but not one that is too big. I am so glad that I went with the Jane. It doesn't look or feel huge. Everything is always within reach, but when you need it, the bag seems bottomless. Jane does not disappoint!
After a lot of research ( I research EVERYTHING), I decided on the Jane. And wow. It looks beautiful. Things I love, the chic look, the lightweight feel due to the nylon, the great construction, the sturdiness. I'm a female executive at a large company and travel a lot. This bag holds everything that I need in the plane. Also I'm a mom to a 1 and 3 year old. This bag doubles as a diaper bag, snack bag, toy bag, laptop bag, every day run out to the store bag. It's my EVERYTHING bag!! I love it. Couldn't give it better reviews. I bought this bag over a year ago and it's still holding up as though I bought it yesterday, and it has been around the world many times, holding a full load of items. Fantastic product!
I just received my Jane in Ash... it's gorgeous! The color is a nice shade - not too light and not too dark. Just right! It will go with everything and I think I can wear it all year. I have over 10 MZW bags and usually opt for a bag with a cross body option. This is my first without a cross body strap (other than the metro totes) and I think I'm going to be just fine! I love the satchel/tote style. It's roomy without being huge. And it will transfer from day to evening nicely. Sometimes it feels like it is going to roll off my shoulder (I have narrow shoulders and have had this problem my entire life - and probably why I like a cross body flat strap) but I'm pleased it comfortably stays on my shoulder most of the time, even with the rolled handles. I'm not sure why it took me so long to buy the Jane! I think this is going to be my every day carry for a while!
I have this bag in green, but it is absolutely amazing! The organization capabilities have changed my life! Perfect for an OCD businesswoman on the go! Very satisfied and highly recommended!
Absolutely fantastic! Love this light weight, roomy bag! Stylish and function! It is just one of my MZ favorites!
This is my go to travel purse. Small enough to manage with other pieces of luggage and large enough to hold everything I need. I love all my MZs!
light, functional and cute. Perfect for the city!
I have been waiting a long time and I love the classic Jane. So glad it is my first MZ Wallace bag.
The very first time I saw an MZ Wallace bag, I was smitten. A woman was carrying a Jane bag and I couldn't stop staring at it. I loved how classy the bag looked - from the black nylon to the leather handles, the red trim and the gold hardware. I knew I had to have that bag! I was too shy to ask what the brand was so I kept squinting my eyes until I finally saw - MZ Wallace. I looked it up right away but since I was still a student back then, I couldn't afford to buy that Jane bag. Now that I have been working for some time now, I surely will treat myself to an MZ Wallace Jane bag!
Love my black Jane. The Black is very deep and rich in tone. The red trim adds just enough flare. The size is perfect. I can fit a file folder in which is great for my job. The long pocket on the back is perfect for a pair flops when your heels are killing your feet. Three colleagues bought the same bag after seeing mine - two got black and one got the Flax which is beautiful for summer. I'm using it year round but I wear a ton of black.
there is no better travel bag, plenty of room and so many different organizing spaces, I love this bag!!!!!!
A true classic that I keep going back to. I bought the Jane when I was living in New York and I needed a travel bag for a trip to Spain. I wanted something durable, yet stylish and functional and the Jane fit what I was looking for. I loved carrying this bag around, never had to worry about setting it down and getting scratched and the size and pockets were perfect. Just enough room without being too large and the pockets are perfectly placed and made it so easy to find what I needed. Fast forward 7 years and I'm now a mom of 3 living back west in the suburbs and the Jane makes the perfect mom bag. I hate diaper bags and have been able to use the Jane for my babies as well. I have other handbags that I love but with kids, it's much harder to clean leather, especially my lighter colored bags, and I find myself using the Jane more often than my other handbags that I used to love. It's a true classic, that has worn well...besides the interior pink lining looking a little dirty, the outside looks brand new 7+ years after I purchased it. I have other MZ Wallace bags and love them too but the Jane was and still is my first MZ Wallace love.
Lots of pockets. Perfect sized handles to wear on your shoulder. Very sturdy.
This bag was given to me as a gift and it's probably one of the best gifts I have ever received! There is a place for everything, looks great with jeans or a dress, and can fit a zillion items and not feel too heavy or too bulky. Overall an amazing bag!
Jane is my loyal friend--holds everything I need for my commute into NYC but I can carry it on the weekends too-- just the right size for weekend errands.
Love this bag! It wears beautifully, goes everywhere, holds all I need, and looks stylish at all times! I now own three in different shades!
The Jane bag is my favorite bag EVER! Not only do I love it but I get compliments on it all the time. The pockets are perfect and it is lightweight. I don't think I will ever be able to go back to a heavy leather bag. I will definitely buys other Jane as this one is wearing out but the Medium Metro Tote in Magnet Oxford might have my name on it as well! Thank you for designing such great bags!
It's like the "Mary Poppins" bag. You don't think you can fit anymore but you can!
This bag does it all! Stows work necessities to keep me organized all week with pockets left over for baby gear and date night essentials. Looks great out to dinner, at a meeting, or at the grocery store. The easy-care fabric cleans up in a snap.
The Jane has been my standby and favorite for more than 10 years. I have many other MZ bags and love them and use them for specific reasons, but nothing fits my lifestyle better the the Jane. I always know I have everything I need with me and can confidently go from activity to the next.
I looked for many years for the perfect bag and then I found Jane. Lots of room for everything, pockets to stow items separately and a pretty pink lining so nothing gets lost. I've had Jane for about five years and it still looks like new. I'm looking forward to shopping for a new MZW bag for fall/winter but Jane is a hard act to follow..
The Jane is my classic staple. Just the perfect size to be able to have EVERYTHING I need especially in a busy day/night out and about. Items are quickly accessible due to great organization - all those outside pockets. And of course it stays spotless and is versatile with my outfits from day to night!
I love this bag because it is so lightweight. The outer pockets are great for keeping a cell phone handy and a NYC transit metro card. The inside purse is great for credit cards and or ID cars. The bag is roomy and many items such as a wallet, cosmetic case , pens, checkbook, comb and/or brush fits easily. The bags handles fit easily over a coat. The bag is smart looking. I have four bags and love them all.
I love, love, love the Jane! I can see why it's such a best seller! It holds everything I need without looking big and bulky. The pleats are just so sweet and stylish and all of the detailing is so beautiful. I always get a ton of compliments when I carry this bag. I am a handbag-aholic and this is definitely going to be a permanent staple in my collection.
Love all my purses from MZ Wallace. They looke great, are functional and hold up well.
I have had the same Jane bag (eggplant/plum color) for 4 years. I use it absolutely every day. I have to carry an umbrella (for UV rays,) 2 pairs of glasses, and the usual suspects. Nobody would ever guess the bag is not new. Sometimes I put my Kindle in there and a phone charger. The ability to organize everything with the different compartments is priceless. I don't have alot of money but I consider this an important and good investment. I just wish there was more color to choose from. If I could get a new Jane bag in that hunter green I'd treat myself to one for my birthday :-) Let's get on the color program MZ !
Looking for the perfect fall bag? Check this one out. Great style, wonderful size and so light weight. I love it!
Where do I begin? My sister turned me on to MZWallace and I have been a junkie ever since. I have four different bags one of which is an iPad carrier that looks like a clutch bag and that is how I use it. It is a great evening bag and I can put it in my Jane and then place my essentials in the clutch and leave the Jane in the trunk. This leads to my love affair with the Jane. It is a fabulous bag and a great workhorse without being too large. The pocket system of the bag is second to none and it truly allows me to remain organized with keys, phone, glasses, writing implements, work badges, lotions, eyedrops and makeup. Thank you for producing such a useful product that is also stylish!
Are you a "big bag" girl who sometimes wishes you could carry a shoulder bag, but you hate to have to pare down the amount of "stuff" you tote? If so, the Jane is for you! This bag looks like a terrific shoulder bag, with the carrying capacity of a tote! I carry my Jane when I need to look polished and still carry my usual belongings. The design is flawless, and the construction is impeccable. The Bedford fabric is seasonless, and easy to maintain. I adore the zippers on this bag- smooth and easy to use. The pulls are stylish and actually fun to use! The 3 pleated pockets on the outside and several inside pockets make this a veritable Mary Poppins bag! I can fit my iPad, a scarf, mittens, a book, a fully stuffed cosmetic bag, a large wallet, 2 eyeglass cases, a small umbrella, my cell phone and even more in this bag with room to spare! This bag is the absolutely perfect everyday bag ! For years I searched for a bag that met all of my "looks like a shoulder bag- behaves like a tote" needs. This is it! Jane, I have a feeling this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship!
This is a classy, well-designed bag in terms of the pocket sizes and locations. The large back zip pocket is ridiculously handy. Now that I have a newborn, I am using this as a diaper bag, and it looks so chic and totally not like a diaper bag! The only thing is when the bag is full of stuff, the straps can feel hard on the shoulder and can sometimes slip off. I wish there was a bag exactly like the Jane in terms of shape, but with a comfy soft leather shoulder strap like the Hayley. Just an idea!
I used my great looking Jane bag for traveling overseas and I can't overstate how terrific it was to have a "filing cabinet" with me! I love being organized and able to carry a lot. The handles and shoulder strap come in handy in different situations, although the handles, when used on the shoulder, could be a bit softer in feel. All in all, I would recommend this product to anyone looking to maximize her storage in style!
Still my favorite, even though I have tried a couple of other versions because the one big drawback is the rolled straps which can get uncomfortable when traveling. Have bought other versions with the good straps but the actual Jane bag is still the best. Please put comfortable leather straps on the Jane for a travel version and it would indeed be perfect.
Jane Fan Forever! I have three Janes and several other MZ Wallace bags. All are fabulous, but a Jane is often my go to bag, especially when traveling. Great organization.
MZ Wallace's classic bag is really a classic! Big enough for everything (but not too big), lightweight, and extremely organized. My favorite!
I received this bag as a gift and have used it non stop since. The compartments and inside pockets hold everything you need. This bag is perfect and can carry eveything! I have even used it as an overnight bag :-) I have 2 MZ Wallace bags now and plan to add more to my collection!
I have just come back to the Jane bag again realizing it really is the perfect bag for me. It is the perfect size and shape along with a great strap drop. It is no wonder she is a best seller! Love MZ Wallace Jane bags!
I love my Jane bag! It's the perfect work bag. Fits my laptop, wallet, make-up bag, a water bottle, and so much more. I carry it every day and on business trips. The external pockets make travel (and locating my keys!) a breeze. I really want another one, and I wish the Jane came in the hunter green color.
Love the size. Organizes everything for me, not too heavy, and easy to put over shoulder
Oh Jane....how I do love thee! This has been my go to bag for years. The size, the organization fit my lifestyle and the stain repellent fabric is so very nice when I spill my cup of coffee on it. I am a handbag snob and I can't bear to NOT carry my Jane bag. You won't be disappointed with any MZW bag!
Fabulous bag!! Compliment after compliment!!! I think it's my new fav!! This bag is so versatile, so many people ask where I got it. I simply love it.
When I was considering buying this bag, I ran into a woman in the building where I work who was carrying it. I asked her about it, and she said, "It changed my life." I thanked her while thinking to myself that she was crazy--a bag change your life? I did purchase the bag, and I am happy to concede that I was wrong and she was right! There is an easily accessible place for everything I want to be easily accessible--cell phone, sunglasses, reading glasses, comb, pen, key card--and that's just on the outside. The inside is roomy enough for wallet, checkbook, cosmetics bag, catchall bag - and a good-sized paperback book. I always feel organized. Chic, too. I brought the bag on a trip to London and Paris, and it was just as handsome as anything I saw in either city. Yes, it's pricey--but the clincher is, I bought a second one in a lovely neutral color for summer. One is now three years old, the other two years old, and they look almost brand new. You CANNOT go wrong. p.s. I am petite and was initially worried that the bag would overwhelm me. But it doesn't. Or, if it does, I'm happy to surrender.
I had the dark brown baby Jane and found it to be a little small this fall I will be purchasing the black Bedford regular Jane as it will be big enough to hold all my personal belongings ! I just love this bag !!!!!
I own the Jane bag in brown. It is the perfect size for day to day use and works beautifully as a carry-on bag for travel. Very roomy. I can get my book, magazines, makeup bag, jewelry roll, wallet, sunglasses, toiletries, and iPhone in there with room to spare! The number of pockets inside and out make the Jane very user friendly. I love the material, too. Strong & easily wipes clean.
I love this bag for travel. I have the bag in black and I get compliments every time I carry it. It's so wonderful for travel because the Jane has so many compartments I find it very easy to keep well organized. I have a cross body strap which is a great addition if you have to carry a bit more on trips.
My first (of many) MZ Wallace purchases was the Jane in Navy bedford. I spotted someone with another style in the Navy color and immediately asked what type of bag that was. As soon as Navy was back in stock, I purchased it without knowing much about the brand. I'm always being complemented on this bag. The Jane can hold so much, and I love the large front pockets for easy access to phone, keys and chap sticks. I loved the bag so much, I've bought many other MZ Wallace bags and accessories. I can't recommend this brand and bag enough.
Absolutely, Jane is my favorite MZW purse. Actually, when I saw it at the first glance, I couldn't withdraw my eyes from it. Until the one reached, it looks even nicer than in picture. Not only beautiful, also as other reviewers mentioned, it is functional, convenient, just all-day purse. Thanks MZW, I am a big fan of MZW now.
As a mom of 2 little boys I needed a large bag...this is IT! There is enough room for all of my things and theirs. With all the great pockets everything stays organized. I just love this bag!!!
The Jane is a great size - not too big or not too small. It holds everything for a day out shopping - makeup, phone, umbrella, water, and even my iPad. It is comfortable to carry either on a shoulder or by hand. The drop in the handles even allows it to be used over a more bulky wool coat. It is also graat to use year round, as the fabric is non- seasonal. This is one of your best designs, as it it is both functional and stylish!
I love this purse. Someone obviously gave thought to a real persons needs when they designed it. There is a safe compartment for everyrhing. You don't have to worry if your purse tips over while driving. Everything is secured. The fabric is perfect for everyday use. If something spills ( which it often does) it comes off easily with ordinary Windex. My one big gripe is that Jane is not available in all of your great colors.
I love the shape of this bag and I get a lot of compliments. Lots of places to be organized and can actually fit my 13 inch MacBook Air!
This is the best bag for work. Big enough for a small laptop but small enough that you don't feel like you are carrying a giant work bag. Pockets are great for commuting - cell phone, iPhone, keys can all go in different pockets. I considered also using this as a baby bag and wish that I had! The pockets are amazing.
I love the Jane. I was a long-time user of the Kate for a work purse but wanted to downsize a bit. The Jane is great, super functional. The strap is the perfect length. The only feature I miss from the Kate is the side spot for a water bottle or umbrella. The Grey color is BEAUTIFUL too.
I can understand why the Jane is a bestseller - it's so versatile! Holds a lot without weighing a lot (or looking like a tote), and the pocketing systems (inside and out) allow for a lot of options. Outside front two hold cell phone in one, keys in the other; long back zipper in back holds large checkbook-size wallet, or sometimes that goes inside and I've rolled up a pashmina, a little sweater, or flat shoes in it - anything you want to keep from getting mussed up from your other stuff. Also love the double zipper on top - goes either way, or just in the middle, and opens wide. Great for air travel, too - everything's securely zipped, and you can cram it under the seat in front of you. Very classy-looking bag - I've had mine quite a while, and it shows no sign of wear.
I LOVE my Jane. I bought her 2.5 years ago and she is like new. I travel a lot and this bag is just perfect because there is a pocket for everything and even for things you didn't know you needed a pocket for! Can't wait to get my next MZ Wallace bag - Moto Charli!
This is the best bag. I have owned my Jane bag for many seasons and it still looks great. Super functional outer pockets, comfortable shoulder straps, durable water resistant fabric, and no visible logo are some of the reasons why I love it. I still look at other bags for something different but nothing compares. Still classy after 3+ years.
I love this bag!!!! It is absolutely perfect. Lots of pockets, and a design that allows me to change colors and never lose anything in my purse because it lives in the same home regardless of color. My computer, sunglasses and makeup case, books, and water bottle are my staples. I use this bag on all my international flights as the personal carry-on. Jane's durability is unsurpassed. The 9" drop on the shoulder strap makes her easy to carry in winter even over my multiple layers and heavy coats. I first saw Jane on display at ShoeBox New York, she caught my eye and I knew I was going to live this bag. I actually left the store walked a NYC block, then turned around and went back and bought it. That was 3 Janes ago. This bag is perfect in every way!
I love this bag for both work and travel. It is easy to be organized using it.
My FIRST MZW bag!! Feel in love with the SIZE, the light WEIGHT and the ORGANIZATION!! A beautiful, EVERYDAY purse that is so classic and so stylish, it is used with pride! LOVE all the pockets! The long-wearing fabric helped me to decide to purchase another MZW bag! I LOVE each bag that I have and it is a joy to recommend your products! I also love the small bags that fit in the purses! Thank YOU for a great purse!
I love this bag! A gift from my husband this bag is the perfect size for a mom on the go! The handles are the perfect length for over the shoulder wear. I was surprised how durable the fabric is- I wore it all year and it still looks new! The inside pockets are helpful to store small items and phone keys so I'm not searching too long in a big bag. I've gotten many compliments on the shape and structure! It's perfect. Thank you!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE the Jane! I have two actually, and one I use when I travel as it conveniently holds my Surface, as well as all of my other stuff. The handles are the perfect length and sit just right on the shoulder. The Nylon fabric is timeless and wears wonderfully. It can be dressy or casual, and I love that it's not your typical 'briefcase' or plain bag. The pockets, of course, are amazing as well - both inside and out! The other I use as a handbag, especially when shopping as it holds so much. I can actually carry smaller purchases right inside so I don't have multiple bags! Can't say enough about this style. I have several other MZW's and will leave reviews for them as well! Enjoy, you can't go wrong!
This is the most fabulous bag!! It fits everything I need with style and grace. The pockets make organization easy and the materials endure even the toughest commute. The Jane is timeless, a classic for classy women everywhere.
No matter which bag I try, I always come back to my black Jane. It is all weather, all season and has perfect pockets to access my smartphone. With the growing popularity of MZ Wallace, I'm constantly asked how to get to the store on Crosby St. And I'm happy to give the directions!
This is my by far my favorite bag ever. The fabric is high-quality, durable, and great for wet weather. The size is great--not too small and not too large--and perfect for travel. It's my go-to bag for trips and looks great whether you're in the city or in the country.
This bag is so versatile and holds everything, while not being bulky. The fun lining is an added bonus!
My everyday bag to carry laptop. Love the pockets and the light weights, and got compliments multiple times from strangers... Minus 1 star because the handles are a bit hard on my shoulder with laptop in... Overall a great investment!
I bought my Jane in 2013 and it is my everyday bag for work or out doing errands. Despite pretty much daily use, including walking commutes in all kinds of weather, the bag looks virtually brand new, which is pretty amazing. I also get compliments on it all the time. I can even fit my Macbook Pro in it, which is convenient. Love MZ Wallace! They make classic bags that are timeless and of amazing quality!
I have been using the Jane purse for several years. I love the versatility and the classic looks. The fabric is awesome and the storage is unbeatable. My daughter and daughter-in-law are also using their own Janes. The only problem with it is you don't want to use any other bag after having this one. I no longer carry a brief case because the Jane has enough storage for me to put all of my work papers in the same bag, as well as all of my personal belongings.
Once upon a time I had a hand-bag addiction. I had over 100 purses, satchels, totes and clutches cluttering up my tiny NYC apartment. One day my (now) husband presented me with an MZ Wallace Jane and it was love at first sight and true love to this day. Within a month I had pared down to a beach tote, a lady like hand-bag, an evening clutch and gym satchel - my Jane was so practical, so stylish, so perfect that my addiction was cured for ever - I had found 'the One'. This bag is light as a feather when it is empty, and perfectly balanced when it is full. You can fill it to the gills and it will never look or feel overstuffed. The handles never dig, there is a place for everything and everything stays in its place. If you have children there is a handy longer outside pocket for soothers, tissues, wipes and other frequently needed items, If you hare pre/post that stage then it is a perfect spot for boarding passes and passports. The handy detachable purse is great for a travel clutch and the clip is handy for keeping keys easily pulled out as well. The two outside front pockets are commodious but structured enough to always look sharp - even when full. Very handy for sunglasses, metro card and phone. Don't hesitate - this will be your favorite too for years to come.
This was the first MZ bag I purchased and I could not be happier with it. The Jane is one of the greatest, most versatile bags! Love the size and all of the zippered compartments. Cannot go wrong with this bag!
I have this bag in three different colors, so that's saying a lot about the beauty of the Jane's design. The size is perfect for everyday use, and the pockets (interior and exterior) make it practical but pretty. The cosmetic pouch inside is the right size as well. I like how the nylon is almost completely water and dirt resistant. If I could afford it, I would buy the Jane in every shade, that's how much I love it.
I love the Jane! Not only is it super cute, but it holds everything you really need a bag to hold. It's probably also the first bag I've owned that I actually use all the pockets consistently rather than just shoving everything in the main pocket. The pockets are all just the right size and in all the convenient places. I own the bag in the coal color with silver hardware, but love it so much that I actually want to buy it in a different color with the gold zippers.
I love love love this bag. I use it for work. The variety and placement of the pockets make it item to store my things. I never find myself fumbling to find anything! I am constantly getting compliments on it too. Thank you for creating such a fabulous bag!
My husband knew I had been coveting this purse and surprised me with it for my 40th birthday. I LOVE it! It is versatile (which is key since I have two children under the age of 4.) I can hide all kinds of "kid stuff" in it, while still looking like a grown-up with a beautiful bag. It also affords me the opportunity to separate the "kid stuff" from the "adult stuff," so I don't feel like I am digging around to find whatever miscellaneous item that I threw into the bag. I am in love. Can't recommend it enough, and when my kids are a little older, maybe I can downsize to the Baby Jane.
I can't tell you how much I love this bag. It is the perfect everyday bag for me, so organized with pockets inside and out, yet looks so structured and polished. It can be dressed up but works very well as a casual bag too. I bought my first Jane about 5 years ago, and have since added a few others in different colors and patterns. I get more compliments on this bag compared to any other bag I have. It even holds my 13" Macbook Air, so makes a great work bag, or carry on when traveling. She's a classic -- keep making Jane is a variety of colors!
I love the Jane......it's easy to tote around without getting overburdened, but roomy enough to hold things like an iPad, which is nice when I need to do so. I love all the pockets, inside and out, which helps to keep me more organized. It's also a wonderful bag when I am traveling. I usually carry one of your larger totes for reading material, camera etc., but this is the perfect ancillary carry-on purse. If everything else in the world were as perfect as this, life wouldn't be bad at all!!
Love, love, love my Jane! It's really the perfect bag for me! Love the double zippers and just enough pockets for packing my stuff -- for work or travel!
I was in-love with the handbag the first time I saw it! Had so many compliments too when I wear it and had 2 friends who weren't MZ fans start buying MZ bags and are fans now too!
Love this bag! So practical while also looking great.
After a friend of mine introduced me to MZ Wallace, the Jane was my first purchase and I LOVE it! This purse has a pocket for everything and more and it doesn't feel weighted down or bulky. I carry a lot of things having two children ages 6 & 9, so at any given time I have hand wipes, tissues, papers, snacks, clothes, and more in this bag and it still looks and feels amazing! I can carry this from day to night with no problem either.
I love everything about the Jane bag. It has plenty of pockets that keep keys, sunglasses, cell phone, lip balm, etc. separate. The main compartment is roomy enough to hold my wallet, make up bag but also kid's toys and snacks, and sometimes an extra pair of diapers.
I love the Jane! It is the perfect size for everyday. I can take my laptop home and still zip it but it's not too bulky when it's not as full. The straps are perfect length for your shoulder but can also be carried. The fabric is easy to take care of and holds up well.
Hands down, my favorite bag! It's the perfect size to hold what I need.....or can hold a ton for when I travel. I love the double zippers so I can wear the bag on either side. I can see why this is the #1 bag!
These bags are so stylish and functional, not to mention they are very well made! I can keep everything I need organized in different pockets and I love its simple design without logos! Can you tell I love these bags.
I am so excited that I found this website. I bought a Jane bag several years ago (it's dark purple) to use when I travel. I did not really know of MZ Wallace at the time. I can't tell you how many times I have used this bag for domestic and overseas travel and how versatile and convenient it is! Not to mention sturdy since I tend to overstuff it with water, iPad, travel documents, etc. The many zippered compartments are awesome at keeping things organized. You know how hard it is to pick just one or two bags to use when traveling? - You only need this and maybe a new Janie for evenings. Trust me, you will LOVE this bag. I have having a hard time deciding which new one to buy to supplement my old faithful.
I was on the hunt for a new black bag to carry every day and ran across a MZ Wallace bag in a Nordstrom catalogue. I decided to check out the full line on the site. I normally prefer leather, but I'd recently purchased a nylon travel bag from another company and decided to give it a try again. Once I narrowed it down to the Jane style, I REALLY struggled with whether to get the Jane or the Baby Jane. I was worried that the Jane may be too big based on some of the reviews. I like a bag with a lot of room -- people who pick up my bag always ask what is in it! But, I didn't want it to be *too* huge and end up having to fish for things in it. I ended up getting the Jane and I love it. It is the perfect size! I attach my keys to the fob on the inside so that I can always find them. I am in the process of planning my wedding, and my 1/2" 3 ring wedding binder that I carry with me constantly fits inside just fine...along with my iPad, two iPhones, a full sized wallet, and a wristlet I use to carry cash, my most important cards, and a few glosses. There are a few other things tossed in the main compartment as well. I also have a small spiral notebook (about 5" w x 8" h) that fits in the wide pocket perfectly -- no worries about it being tossed around in the main compartment and getting messed up. I also have the little pouch that comes with it in the big pocket (not currently using the pouch since I already had a wristlet I use). There's still room for more in that pocket. I don't use the two smaller pockets very often, but glad that they are there. I occasionally toss an umbrella in to the main compartment (or the big pocket before I started putting my spiral notebook there). Basically, this bag has more than enough room for what I carry on a daily basis, and it never feels or looks overstuffed. To be honest, the bag will probably get too heavy to carry before it runs out of room for you to shove things inside. :) That said, it is not so huge that your stuff is swimming inside of it. I'm glad that I found my perfect go-to bag!
I purchased my first MZ Wallace bag, a Jane, after my daughter noticed the woeful condition of my current purse and recommended I search the site for a better alternative. I chose the black nylon Jane and cannot say enough about the difference in my ability to organize every possible thing I need to carry through the day. There is a phone spot, a credit card holder slot, key pocket, writing materials zip pocket, iPad pouch, makeup zipper compartment and still room for anything else you need to add. For example, I stuff my shoes in the bag on the way to the gym. One of the most remarkable aspects of the bag is its durability. I live in the land of ice and snow. There is sand and salt everywhere to melt ice, so ones coats and bags are often filthy and wear out sooner than they should. A damp wipe, and Jane is as good as new. Jane is large. I am adding some smaller bags for days I don't need such a large bag. Honestly, I can't recommend this bag highly enough for its many assets and handsome aspect.
The Jane is classic and functional. I carry this style with everything from gym clothes to dressier clothes for dinner out and it always compliments my outfit. It can hold a little or a lot and still look great. My heart would flutter if I could get a Jane in navy with silver hardware.
Saw this bag on a co-worker for the first time last week and then my cousin was carrying a blue one 3 days later- It is beautifully made. There are a ton of pockets to separate all of your items, and the red trim just adds something to make this bag special. I tried all of the styles on and came away with the Jane. LOVE it!
I bought this bag in anticipation of a trip last month and wanted something that would hold enough for my carry on with a baby and a toddler. This held an ipad, toys, games, diapers, wipes, formula and bottles. I can't say enough good things about this bag. It is extremely lightweight, so that you can load it up with anything you want. I personally loved this brown camel color, and can't believe it's on sale right now. I wish I needed another one because this is a great deal. I love this bag more than any of my others and only use this bag now. It is the perfect size, and has lots of pockets to store things in. I love the large easy access pocket on the back, for my sunglasses and keys.
The whole purpose of all the pockets is so you don't have to unzip further pouches/bags/kits and waste your time/efficiency ratio. MZW has perfected this ethos in all their bags. Jane is their classic medium-to-large sized carryall. -If you're OCD about organizing, this bag is for you. I throw all my makeup supplies in the two front pockets for easy access -- you never have to fumble in your bag and unzip another bag for a lipgloss. -The interior is large enough to hold a laptop plus loads more, and the two easy-access tech pockets are lifesavers -- i have TWO iphones (1 for work, 1 for personal) and plus the metrocard pocket is a lifesaver for my metrocard, business cards, receipts, coat check tickets, anything small that gets lost easily. -The ultimate city bag for those who need to carry a lot of stuff with them, and since it's nylon, it's very light. -Bright colored red lining makes the "black hole of your purse" less of an abyss -- it actually makes things easier to find. the ONLY qualms i have with this bag are: -it's a bit TOO large for me, and i end up filling it with more stuff. i would prefer to get the Baby Jane instead, which is slightly smaller. -the rolled handles always fall off my shoulder. this is a big problem, especially if you have narrow shoulders. It is the reason why i gave this bag to my sister and switched to the Metro Tote.
I've been hooked on M Z Wallace bags for 5 years. They are fantastic! I love the space they provide and hold up great.
I've had my black Jane for years and absolutely love it. I bought a second one a couple of years ago during the MZ Wallace Easter Egg Hunt online, but the new one is still sitting in my closet waiting because the original purse still looks brand new! It is lightweight, the fabric is beautiful and extremely durable and the leather handles are the perfect length to carry on your shoulder. It is a perfect everyday bag as the two front pockets are ideal for keys and cell phones. I especially love it for traveling too--the long outside pocket is the place to carry airline tickets and documents. I get lots of compliments on this purse and I can't say enough good things about it. It is absolutely worth the investment. It is my "go to" purse and has spoiled me for anything else.
After years of wanting a Jane bag, I finally decided to splurge. It is the best handbag I have ever owned! I love the gorgeous blue color and all the pockets make it really easy to organize and find things quickly. It is a great size and shape for everyday use, but would easily be a perfect carry-on for travel. Everywhere I go, people compliment the beautiful style and color. I am so happy that I finally decided to treat myself.
My first M Z Wallace bag purchased many years ago. Still one of my favorites although I have about 6 more since the first purchase.
Perfection! The two large tassel pulls are why I was so attracted to this bag. So cute with the pink lining!!
I absolutely love my Jane!!! I have only had her for a few weeks but I am hooked. The bag is lightweight, strap length is perfect and the pockets make it impossible to ever use another bag again! Recently brought my Jane to Colorado and was able to just as easily hike up the mountains with her as it was to stroll through the towns. Cannot recommend this bag enough!
I accidentally happened upon this bag in an upper west side boutique in Manhattan. I immediately knew it was the bag I had been waiting to find! Attractive, lightweight and just the right size, this bag has been my constant companion for 3 years. Though I have other attractive bags, I always come back to this one. In fact, I've used it (not always kindly) so much, that I've worn it out! I have just purchased a new one exactly like it because I can no longer imagine not having Jane. This is the best bag ever!
Just bought this bag today. I have been eyeing it up since Christmas. It is so wonderful and I love all of the compartments. Not to mention it is the perfect size! Happy to have this as my first MZ Wallace purchase and I look forward to many more!
I LUV the Jane, so much bigger than baby jane for not much more money. Luv the double zip up zipper and it's a great shoulder bag without having the attached strap. The ruching on both sides is gorgeous on my burgandy bag. So I am on the verge of getting this. Go girls !!!
I just received this purse today and I LOVE it.
I have loved the Jane for a long time, and it's even better in the new Navy Bedford. I had missed the navy options that were available the past few years, so I grabbed this as soon as it came out! The color is a dark navy with perfectly matched leather trim. If you love the Jane, this is a great color to add to your collection. If you haven't tried it yet, this is a pretty color to choose, especially if you are looking for a neutral but don't want black. The size and pockets on this style make it a great airplane carryon, but I mainly use it as my everyday commuting bag. Highly recommend this style!
Just received my PLUM Jane, and I love it! The rich color is such a nice alternative to black or brown.
Absolutely love my Jane bag. I have it in the Cranberry Bedford from Winter 2010. Still have to lug around sippy cups, wipes and snacks for my 3 year old and this handles all that so neatly - lots of pockets for organizing! I get compliments all the time on this bag. Fabric is amazingly resilient - looks brand new after much wear.
The Plum Jane is my third Jane handbag. Absolutely love these bags. They are the perfect size for carrying everything you need - they hold up very well. People admire them and usually tell me they w ant one - I hve them in navy lustre and khaki.
I own two Janes and they are absolutely fabulous handbags! Travel, work, and even for dress....
I've been searching high and low for a work bag which is roomy, light and can carry all my things that I need. I also wanted a bag which could withstand abuse and doesnt have to be babies. After much research I bought the MZW jane bag. I have one word- AWESOME! It has many pockets on th outside - i keep my badge and work keys and car keys in the front pockets. I can carry my small laptop inside as well as a few files wth papers. My gosh, I wish I had known about this bag before! It really works. And I have had compliments from all kinds of people. I love my MZW jane bag. Thank you!!
MZ Wallace bags have spoiled me for all other brands. I wasn't sure that I'd love a nylon bag, being a leather bag fan forever. I have now owned my Jane bag for many months, and am hookked. It looks like the day I received it. It's roomy enough to be the only bag I need to carry on a daily basis. I am obsessed with bag organization, so I can never have enough pockets. This bag fits the bill and then some. It doesn't really get dirty, but when it looks dusty or has a smudge, it's so easy to wipe it down with a damp cloth and it looks brand new. This bag is very lightweight on the shoulder, even when full, and I appreciate that because I have shoulder pain from years of carrying heavy bags. My final favorite aspect of this bag is that I don't have to give the weather a second thought. This bag can be carried through rain and snow, and come out with no damage. The leather trim even survives rough weather with success. My only request for future bags is that I'd like to see more options with silver or gunmetal hardware. MZ Wallace bags are really perfect in every way. If you are hesitant to spend this much on a nylon bag, or aren't sure if you'd enjoy carrying one, I encourage you to try a Jane. You will become an MZW fan too.
I've had this bag for over a year and love it. I get so many compliments on the color. It is a beautiful gold color that goes with everything. The style of the bag is great for everyday use and it perfect as a work bag too. I wish MZWallace would continue to make the Jane in this linen fabric because it is fantastic! Also would love to see it in pewter or bronze. I live in SF and when a gay man compliments you on your handbag you know it's great style
Hello my name is Sydney and I am an MZ'aholic. I already have 2 and now I bough a coral Jane for summer! Such beautiful bags and they stay so clean no matter what abuse I put them through. I snuck onto the site to check out the new Bella you just emailed in today's newsletter.
I love my Jane!!! its the perfect bag. i can throw my lunch in it and even my gym clothes. I also love that i can wear my bag in any weather and it never gets ruined. I have had my bag for over a year and it still looks brand new.
Like Mary Poppins, this bag is 'practically perfect in every way.' It's incredibly light (making it ideal for when I travel), improbably roomy (I've stuffed in a laptop, sweater and Tupperware salad container) and superbly designed (there are easy-to-reach pockets for my cell phone, notebook and metrocard). But the thing that makes me happiest is the outrageous bright pink lining--a cheery note to brighten even the craziest day.
MZW has pretty much ruined my life. I used to be able to use all sorts of different bags, both for daily life and travel, but mzwallace handbags have spoiled me forever. They are the pefect mix of function and luxury, but the main thing for me is that they are so gorgeous. I love the materials, the hardware, the pockets, the colors, the linings, the market purses, and almost more than anything, the ingenuity. These are the ultimate handbags. I love that there's always the exact amount of space I need, and a place for everything, so I can instantly find the things I need. I love that everyone is so jealous when they see the latest beautiful handbag on my arm. I love how envious they all feel when I show them the inside--the lining, the pockets and compartments. And at the same time, if I want to have a friend for life, I treat her to an mz wallace bag, knowing that she will feel like a million dollars every time she goes out, that the bag will last forever, and that she's going to think of me every time HER friends get jealous.
