Meet Mr. Mantis, this bag is hand stitched midweight black conditioned leather and lightweight forest and mossy green leather. I used forest and bright lime green waxed thread throughout Mantis. Hand stitching with waxed thread creates a durable, everyday wearable and glamorous bag.

Mantis is a big bag with lots of space. The shoulder strap is wide for a comfortable tote. The bag fits under the upper arm or as a crossbody. Choose your desired length at checkout.

The rough cuts of hide inspire my designs. I love asymmetry as found in our beautiful natural world. I used the rough raw edges of the black and green leather for the pockets and side panels.

Mantis has 2 pockets stitched to the main compartment. The front pocket has a ring stitched to the front. Pull the security strap through the pocket ring to secure the contents of the front pocket. The security strap is then pulled through 2 rings stitched to the back of the main compartment’s opening. Pull the security strap through both rings and back through the bottom ring to secure.

I have also used mental rings to connect the side panels to the shoulder strap.

Along the side panels I have created black and green tassels inspired by nature’s vines and grasses. Black leather flowers are wrapped around a tassel. 

Mantis is rich with earthy inspired details. I hope you are brought inspiration and delight from wearing this magical bag.

About size and fit

Open tab

As you will have determined, each item is designed in such a way that the loose drape and easy fit is able to fashionably accommodate a certain range of sizes. Items that are designated ONE SIZE have a super-loose, super-draped construction that is flattering for a wide variety of body types.

Please do not apply a universal size chart to our clothes.

Sizing is a designer's signature. Each is different. Please call or email us at info@absoutlelyabigails.com and ask for measurements. We will get back to you within 24 hours. Or you can call 318-219-0788 and leave a message. 

Please do not hesitate to contact if you're unsure of the sizing and fit!

Size ranges differ to accommodate the item's particular fit -- an M/L in one item can range from sizes 10 - 16, but another item might have an M/L that fits sizes 8 - 14.

Take care to always check for proper fit!

THE LOOK - THE FIT - THE ATTITUDE

If you're not familiar with unstructured and deconstructed designs, such as you find with Japanese minimalist or European avant-garde designers, the following are some guidelines to what it's all about and how to approach the unique nature of these creations.

What to expect :

VOLUME AND LOOSE FIT
The bigger the better -- don't be afraid to go one or two sizes bigger than usual. Let it drape!

LAYERS, LAYERS, LAYERS
Wear a shorter jacket over a long top. Pants under a dress. Go for it -- pile it on!

DROPPED SHOULDERS
Shoulder seams are purposely not on top of the shoulder, but lower down the arm to create a fluid and easy-going style.

EXTRA LONG SLEEVES
So you can just roll up your sleeves and go!

WAISTS WITH ELASTICS
Most of the elasticized waistbands can be easily adjusted -- look for a small opening on the inside (usually found on the side seam or back seam) of the waistband where the elastic is accessible.

PANTS WITH EXTRA-LONG RISE
As long as the pants are loose enough, you won't have bulges in the front -- no matter what size you are!

BIGGER THAN USUAL ARMHOLES
So you don't have that strangled armpit look, i.e. the armhole is not digging into your underarm.

Remember that the average guy is not savvy enough to appreciate the elegance of dressing like this ("It's not tight enough! It's not revealing enough!") -- it's the 21st century, so rely on your own sense of style. You know best. Most of all, expect to look a hundred times better than you do in regular clothes -- expect to feel empowered and fabulous.

What not to expect?

Anything ordinary or predictable!!!!!!!

These clothes are not for the masses. Be bold, wear everything with attitude!
