those canvas bags look like something from the gap. the $300 value is all because of the name.

i have nothing against gap at all really, i don't. i think alot of the bags they make are cute, chic, simple and priced well. just saying, why would you by a heres like that when you could get something just as wonderful at the gap or an LL Bean catalogue for that matter, cuz gosh, that bag looks so grandma-ish.

I'm rehashing this topic because I just found this image, of the Haut a Courroies.



What size of the bag is this??! Does it only come in one?
I LOVE IT!
Look how huge it is!!
It is so nice, and definitely not as feminine looking as the Birkin.
This one is like a nice briefcase...
I must have one!

Info please?

Brian that's niiiice Cant your nearest Hermes store give you any info?

By the way, while I can see why people might not like the other bag you posted (I think its called a "sac fourre tout") I have a bit of a soft spot for it. They are beautifully made, lined and detailed. It just depends on what you like

Brian,

the Haut a Courroies generally comes only in the 32cm size, which is much smaller than the size that you posted. However, the bag is also available for special order in much larger sizes. I think the 32cm retails for about $6000 in a basic Hermes leather.

Certainly give Hermes a call for some definite word.

I bet you can fit a very short person in one of those bags.

There is no Hermes store nearest me... YET anyhow.

One is being built, and it is going to open sometime in 2005 or early 2006

Which "other bag" were you referring to? The canvas one? If so, yes, I can also tell why not many people favor it. It looks kind of "simple" and "common" since it's canvas, but personally I have a soft spot for them as well They are just so nice and seem very durable, and canvas is a fabric that can really take a beating and still survive I've had a lot of canvas messengers that've lasted years. I'll get an Hermes one eventually
