Why don't you head on down to South Florida and stop by Bal Harbor Shops, because they have them there!! And also, you can get them online too!

now I'm thoroughly depressed. I just learned that the lovely praline color is not new, it's old and discontinued. the "new" tan is more orange, like terracotta. ick. apparently the entire company is sold out of the large hobo in praline. so surfermegz, I believe your mom got the very last one on the whole planet. she'd better hang onto it tight lest I come snatch it from her!:p

gucci horsebit hobo
does anyone have one of these, real or not? i ordered one off of i-offer and was wondering about the quality/durablitity of those (real of fake). the seller has it listed as a 7 star AAA bag, in real calf skin. she has a lot of positive feedback, so i feel okay about it. but how do you like your gucci? i got the large size, does anyone have it and is it too large? is the medium better? i'm not even really a fan of gucci, but i wanted a big huge black leather bag. and when i did a search on ebay i saw one of these and like VERY much. looks like it will hold ALLL my crap. as you know, im a big bag gal, with a lil frame.

hi there...i have the large black gucci horsebit. got it from the gucci store. i love it! use it at least once a week. the leather isn't very soft, but sturdy. i think the large size is great if that's what you're looking for. my friend prefered the smaller one against her body becuase she's only 5 feet tall. enjoy!

I love the large. the leather (on the real one) is thick and sturdy, yet so beautifully slouchy that I don't think it overwhelms even petite women (so long as you don't pack it full). the medium is cute, has a zip top and is a more practical size, but it's not as dramatically luxurious as the large (and it's much smaller -- too small for me). I saw a co-worker with an obvious knock-off today and I would say the big difference form the real one is the leather, which was really really soft, so much so that even without being too full, the bag looked very crumply and it hung from her shoulder in an unbalanced way. I've noticed that same quality in the fakes on eBay -- the bag looks unattractively rumpled, like it's been slept on. other than the gucci name, this bag is all about the leather so lesser quality leather makes a big difference. I hope you like yours though!

great! im 5'6" but am tiny and wear petite sizes. i totaly dig the olsens style, the vintage and too-big style, and i love BIG bags! just throw on a pair of oversized vintage lenses and a big bag and im ready! like i said before, im not a big gucci fan and am really getting this bag for the design rather than the label and thats why im getting the i-offer one. i make bags too and thought i could get the hide and stuff and make what i want, but the hide was going to cost me more than the bag already. so i did the lazy thing and experienced i-offer for the first time. hope it works out okay!

I have the large Gucci horsebit hobo in a beautiful tobacco colored leather. It is so durable and just a gorgeous bag. I get compliments all the time! I must tell you though, the horsebit is a bit heavy and if you carry it for a lot of time it may tire your arm. Also the drop from the handle to the bulk of the bag is not very big so it will fit pretty snugly under your arm. These are not bad things by any means- I am just telling you! It is my favorite bag I own right now and the bag that gets sooo many compliments!
