Like AG Spalding, IIRC it's a brand that HAD a true heritage, but sold its name to an Italian license/factory.In any case, it's very popular in Japan; I've never really seen it much elsewhere. Pricing is surprisingly high (at retail very close to the other "big" brands), and quality is pretty good. The issue is if you can deal with the styling... almost everything has a big HUNTING WORLD logo and an elephant smattered on it somewhere. I had a shopper tote and a travel...
I was building off your "murse" comments. I'm not a big fan of either one, really; Goyard quality is okay but the pricing is beyond crazy for coated canvas. Burberry has never impressed me with its bags even in the PRORSUM line (styling on the runway bags is sometimes okay, but the leathers, hardware, and linings are often shoddy). As well, the other Burberry lines tend to have extraordinarily derivative styling; I mean, studs? It's like when Prada suddenly started...
Good question and I'll be curious to hear their reasons,. Personally, I'm glad they didn't. I'm also glad they didn't put metal feet on the bottom.The thread is getting pretty long and harder to read in one sitting... but IIRC we discussed strap or no for the tote a pages back. If you want a shoulder strap, buy a messenger is my opinion. A tote looks awful when it's worn with a strap; it bends and warps to the contours of your body. A top-handled bag is meant to be...
Great; the dark brown sounds lovely. Zagliani is one of those tough brands to find accurate info; they made that bag in many sizes, many colors, and sold it in several places (mostly in Europe). It's also not really popular enough that there are committed databases/resources for their seasons online.IIRC, the "tomodachi" has also been offered several different seasons. The prices varied, the materials varied, as did the sizes. It's the draw (and irritation!) of buying...
It's called the Tomodachi bag (do a search for "Zagliani Tomodachi" and you'll get lots of images and various colors/leathers.)Is yours the black one? They also made a really nice midnight blue that season (in fact I think the dark blue was the one I almost snagged).Apparently it was even more $$$ than I remembered; it says here $2655:http://www.lyst.com/bags/zagliani-brown-big-tomodachi-supersoft-calf-luggage/
I actually had this bag in my "Dream box" (and once in my cart!) but didn't pull the trigger just because I couldn't justify another travel bag. Glad somebody here ended up with it. I liked it for the very same reasons you mentioned. Given Zagliani's retail, that IS disappointing about the handles. BUT, overall, as you mentioned it's a classic, minimal bag.Zagliani is mostly known for their exotic leather bags (especially python); it's rarer to find a standard, soft...
Most of my "core" collection is marketed to women, from Shalimar to Mitsouko to Miss Dior. The only "absolute" men fragrances are perhaps Chanel PM or the vintage Givenchy Gentleman.Diorella today. "feminine" in name only.
Yep. Nimoy (for me) is one of those "if you could have dinner with one person" sort of folk. Of course everybody remembers Spock, but a brief perusal of his CV shows an amazing life, career, and talent in almost every artistic medium there is.
Leonard Nimoy dead at age 83. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/27/arts/television/leonard-nimoy-spock-of-star-trek-dies-at-83.html?_r=0 Everybody knows his work as Spock, but he was also an accomplished artist/photographer, film director, television personality and broadcaster... just to name a few. Anybody care to join me in watching Star Trek II: Teh Wrath of Khan tonight? NOTE: NOT YOU, CONNE.
This is the key. Made from a thick leather and especially if it has any interior lining/pockets, you lose functionality after a certain size (not only is it harder to keep folders/papers organized, stick a laptop in it and it gets so heavy it'll break your arm). Also, the bigger you get the more casual the style becomes (a casual tote is not a work tote anymore than a briefcase is the same as a day bag).As your brand grows, however, you might consider making your "core"...
