I guess that I shouldn’t be surprised that this nylon bag costs as much as it’s leather cousin – it’s coach after all. The Coach Legacy Nylon Weekend Tote (that’s a mouthful) is “an essential weekend or work bag, this lightweight tote includes plenty of pockets and a convenient zipper closure”. It includes inside zip patch pockets, multi-function pocket and pen loops, zip top closure, outside front and back pocket with two small open side pockets, Hampton calfskin, soft pebble and vachetta trim, and a fabric lining. $448.00US at Coach.
Geoff sent his recommendation for this Coach messenger bag. From what I can see online it is indeed “sweet”. Coach’s Legacy Leather messenger bag measures 163/8(L)x12(H)x6(W) and features an inside zip pocket, cellphone/multi-function pocket, front and out open pockets, and a 53″ adjustable strap. The leather looks superb. A bag of this quality will set you back $498.00 US direct from Coach.
This small stamp sized photo doesn’t do justice to this beautifully styled suit bag from Coach. Sometimes even the mega-sized companies can produce something great. Made from weather-resistant nylon with leather trim the legacy nylon suit bag features an inside hanger hook, two shoe pockets, an outside open pocket, and a long zip enclosure. If I didn’t have two suit bags already I might just buy one for myself.
Was available for $398US from Coach.
One category of bag which I find constantly buying would be “small compact bags to carry a sketch book and day planner in”. We will not call these man purses ok? I’ve gone through dozens, not because I buy items of poor quality but because they tend to be a bit easier on the pocket book. Well except for the Varick Nylon Small Mapbag which high of style appeal is at $198US a bit expensive for a nylon product and as such, for the poor man that I am, not an impulse buy. For some the habit of carrying a bag such as this has it’s routes in travel. They are perfect for carrying a map, guidebook, munchies, and a small camera. For me it has it’s routes as a “gigging” musician. A musician’s friend is his date and address book and since most of your work is acquired through social networking you have to be prepared at all times to check you calendar to fit in some work. These days I carry these bag types simply to free my hands – all I carry inside are diapers, pocket camera, and candy. This coach bag will be a good fit for all you urban adventurers.
This is the kind of bag you notice from across the store, walk over to touch, running your hands over the fine shearling with soft pebbled leather trim. It feels good and you want it but you know what’s coming next – the price tag. The Coach Alpine Ski Messenger bag is the perfect bag for that rough in the mountains look while you traverse the hazards of traffic in the city. The fact that it has an inside zip, multi-function, and zip closure under flap pockets is irrelevant. It’s not about function it’s about style. It’s yours for $548US.
