i saw that but it's so fucking expensive it's not something that even registers in my brain
+1. "Hmmmm... should I pay off my house... or buy a bag?" Most of the time, these bags are produced for marketing/publicity purposes, or are given to a few celebrities as "gifts" to be shown off as such. Very rarely does anybody actually BUY these things, and even then... I'd say they probably make only a couple. I've really never heard of anybody actually buying one at full retail, just walking into the store to get one. (NOTE: this doesn't carry over for Hermes, strangely). That being said, in most of the major flagship boutiques, they'll have one or two. I regularly see them in the main Tokyo stores, and probably in NYC they have them, too... from the major players (from Valentino to Gucci to Prada.) Just sitting there on the shelf is the bag, with the $34,000 price tag just hanging there.
i only hear good things about Want les. Given the brand's majestic use of color though I would prefer something different than a basic black/gray. Still no reason to pass it up if the deal is real good!
Me and Desi are always on the same page I have personally handled Want Les bags - very good construction and materials. I'd say go for it. Where are you getting the good deal?

Aren't they almost always borderline or completely over the top?
does anyone have experience with the leonello borghi bags? i know they sell them at barneys and i always see a couple bags that might be interesting on gilt sales but i dont know anything about the quality etc. specifically http://www.barneys.com/Weekender%20B...efault,pd.html i'm thinking might be good for going to class etc.
Knomo special edition at Selfridges in the UK only. Better than Jack Spade for less money, and a good bag if you understand that less bag means you carry less crap (no space for a water bottle, for instance)
I received recently from the same seller a Want Trudeau bag in tan for a 17" laptop, but I find the colour a bit too much for formal occasions and it's too big. I'll see which one I'll keep.
I like the look of both, although the vertical one's handle drop might be too long for me, but that's a personal preference of course (I am not very tall!!!). Is the color in the pictures of the tan briefcase representative of the real color? If you decide to sell, let me know
BTW, guys, I am selling a Bill Amberg leather travel bag. It's a good bag, but it doesn't really suit my needs anymore. It's actually hard to part with it...let's see if I have any interests. I wish I could just fold it into a little thing and put it in a drawer....
