you're right! I can't stand the look of the entire LV line! I agree with the old-school Coach, these new lines are just bad, and they all look alike now too!

I do enjoy a good, quality purse; but, I refuse to wear or accessorize myself with the same items everyone else is wearing.

It's ridiculous looking when you see two or three women together with the same or very similar purse.

A lady in my office has a nice professional leather Coach bag vs. the loud logo ones everyone else is carrying.

I have been buying Coach since the 80s. I have a very nice collection of leather bags in many colors. 20 plus years later and they all still look wonderful, including my attache.

However, Coach lost its glow w/ me when they started making them in China.

I only have a wristlet that has the logo on it and I see knockoffs all over . . .

Unless I see a Coach at one of their outlet store severely marked down and in a color I know I will keep . . . I am no longer buying them.

I have a few cute Kate Spades I really like but they, too, are being knocked off.

I have a Chanel and a Prada I really enjoy carrying, but they, too, have been knocked off.

I love beautiful, substantial leather handbags and wallets - and other accessories.

Got a really cute tote last week - Baekgaard. Nice quality construction, fun colors and accessories. Got it on sale. I like Italian leathergoods, too, so suspect I will be buying more of that type of thing in the future . . . Don't mind spending money on a good handbag that will last but I am not interested in carrying a handbag that is being knocked off.

I used to make handbags back in the 70s - cute hobo type bags and I am thinking this may be a fun thing to try again . . . design my own stuff. That won't be knocked off, for sure!!!!

It used to be Coach Leather, and their leather products were top quality. I have several of their leather handbags, but too heavy to use much.

I really despise the newer Coach bags, mostly cloth, some leather trim, or I guess what I can't stand is how people let them get so dirty. Guess they just aren't for everyday use.

I am tired of Coach. Just about everyone in NJ has them now.

My son bought me my first one 7 years ago and that's how my addiction started.
I have 4 Coach bags, my favorite are my 2 leather totes, made really well and durable. I really can't stand the newer ones, so I will not be buying anymore Coach.

I do own one LV tote, however, I hardly use it.

Are middle class people not supposed to buy them?

The recent epidemic of 16 year olds, in every ghetto, in every city, wearing them, has caused me not to want to wear mine anymore. I have a few leather ones that I still wear to work, every now and then...and I have a few signature "C" purses, that I bought when Coach first introduced them back in the late 90's/early 2000's, but like I said, I have no desire to wear them after witnessing the demographic COACH seems to cater to nowadays. I let my 16 year old wear all my old signature COACH stuff now, since it seems to be all 'they' like to wear


True I do see them a lot in most suburban malls. But there's nothing wrong with those bags for someone who's never had a good quality purse! I don't care for Coach/DooneyB and started with others but this is like a starter bag to luxury. You then move up to better quality bags. Only if you can afford it of course!

This thread (Coach Bags) remind me of Tommy Hilfiger in the 90's

Yeah, I don't care for them much. Not enough room for me to carry my stuff (my wallet, my compact and lipstick, my organizer with my phone numbers in it, my hairbrush, my cell phone, and my keys). If a purse can fit all that, then I'm happy with it.

These purses might be only okay if you're going out and don't want to take a lot of stuff, just your money, ID, and keys.

I must fess up, I bought a Couch bag, that stores my I-Pad in a separate compartment. I've always liked their leather purses.

Honestly... I think Coach purses are cute, but I would not buy them... And yes, I am sick of them. It's not just a Dallas thing. It's everywhere! It's driving me crazy.
