I have been meaning to ask this awhile of Tom, Darcy, Katy or users:
Cafe Bag has a unique flap. What has puzzled me for long is this, and I am not sure I can explain it clearly. When you close the flap and bring the buckle down, the top half of the buckle comes all the way down. So when you clip it in, there is "slack" on the top of the lid. In other words, it does not close on top with a tight fit. I can see that it might be sometimes useful--if you put in taller things...but I have always wondered why Tom did that--given he is so "persnickety" ( about details.....!
