IN terms of simplicity of design, functionality, and quality of materials... the current Valextra men's seasonal offering is JUST about perfect.... the perfect tote, the perfect duffle, the perfect messenger.
I like this a lot. Reminds me of Hermes' "Whitebus" tote, though I assume the Valextra's price is borderline reasonable in comparison.
Pictures of what? The thread is full of pictures. If you mean the early pages/reviews, there aren't pictures because it makes the thread easier to read. Tons of pics take forever to load for some members, and clog up the reviews. I assumed people were capable of googling pics on their own, having the reviews/brand names.
I picked a Want les Essentials black De Gaule and a tan Trudeau from ebay UK for about 170 GBP each (see previous posts in this thread). I decided to keep both, even if I do not need them for the moment. The seller has at the moment this black De Gaulle, international shipping available, bidding starts at 165 GBP.
Tee, that NDC bag looks sick. What the retail on that? Links?
It's an old season model and probably almost impossible to find nowadays. Retail was "only" about 300€/$440 back then, due to the fact that it's "only" a herringbone pattern material with a minimal leather finish, while a full leather bag by NDC, depending on size, will cost at least twice-, if not three times as much. To be honest, there a probably hundrets of labels which offer comparable bags, though. Nothing we haven't seen before... BTW... I'm so proud of you that you affiliated yourself to the NDC sect ( the only true faith ), Cez. You're surely one of our most faithful followers. And there's no end in sight. We grow like topsy. Day by day.... ( Tom Cruise is next )
