It happens from time to time, and I don't want to "censor" anything, but overall the thread really isn't to post sales items. I really don't want the thread to become the place where people come to post or get buzz for their bag sales, unless it is for something that has either been under direct discussion or something really interesting or unique. Filson is a perfectly fine brand, but it's discussed on SF so much this thread is hardly the place to talk more about them.
Good catch; I just meant maybe it could be another hide... around the toe looked sort of like sea turtle stuff I'd seen before in Asia. I'm really not an expert in croc hides (though I started a thread about them before!) I'm sure others have much more detailed knowledge. They are pretty awesome shoes, nonetheless, though I don't know if I'd ever have a place to where them.
Do they have the Croc dots/holes in the scales? They also kinda look a little like Sea Turtle. In any case, an awesome find.
It is an interesting shape; it reminds me of MALO, another of those small nichey Euro brands that is famous for one thing (cashmere sweaters) but does some interesting accessories. They were owned by Ittierre (along with Gianfranco Ferre), but since the former went kaput, I have no idea who owns/runs them now.
Golden Goose is one of those brands I just don't get (and never have). I never hear anybody talk about it, the collections I have seen have all been kinda tacky looking (sort of marni meets Dsquared)... and the prices are really staggering. I've never owned anything from them, though, so I don't have any first-hand knowledge. I also know virtually nothing about its production, designers, etc. (never really saw anything I liked well enough to keep searching). SO, take...
I've never had one of their bags; it's a basic canvas, so probably pretty sturdy. Do you have a link to the actual bag (so we can see more details?)Overall, the $200-ish range is really tough, actually; you can find a good used bag with some legwork, but at retail there really isn't much out there. It's probably smart you are sticking to textiles or canvas, though; you really won't get much leather-wise at that price. Pics online might make it look okay, but you'll...
Very cool. Looking forward to the coverage. When at a good noodle restaurant, be sure to ask for the "bukkake" udon.
I think you did ok. Many of the "entry level" dunhill bags I saw a season or two back weren't made in Italy; I'm glad yours is (or is at least marked that way... but Italy has some sketchily flexible laws when it comes to allowing 'made in' on its items).That price is a good one; honestly I wasn't thinking anybody would be able to get one less than half retail (which at ~$500 still seemed way too much to me) at least until it had been out for several seasons. One rarely...
Yeah, for $110 I'd say it's probably worth it. You don't get a lot for $100 that's in good condition, so I'd say you did a good job (assuming of course it's authentic... there ARE Dunhill fakes out there). I can't imagine how they could sell a current season bag for that steep a discount... even if that price might be what it's worth.As for what I hated about it... basically everything. The stiff, plasticky leather, the chintzy hardware, the "meh" lining, the tacky,...
So many new bag brands on the forum in the past few months it's tough to keep up! I hope you guys can take over a little bit, take a look at their wares, and post reviews! I've about reached saturation... so I'm hoping others will chime in. So great to see so many new brands fitting into that much needed niche of mid-priced/good quality here in the USA (or North America).
