No. Coach was known for sort of thick, durable, no-nonsense quality. I think Ghurka aimed for better detailing and finishing.

I have a Ghurka planner I've used since 1996. Still going strong.

I had a Ghurka wallet fall apart in two years, but I wore it hard.

When the San Francisco store was open, an employee took me through the product line and showed me where "Made in China" tags were buried inside zippered pockets. He also showed me USA, and China bags side-by-side and the thickness and finish of the leather didn't match at all. There were some small leather goods at the time made in Italy, but only a few and not bags or briefcases.

This is the key wording. Only the samples are made in Italy and Spain. NOT the final product. These guys are really sleazy.

Funny - I have been told by Ghurka salespeople also that the bags were all still made here. It sucks that they seem to be either so misinformed or deliberately deceiving.

I just sold this Ghurka (Convoy) messenger bay on ebay for $200. It was a floor model, I never took it out of the box. Purchased at least 3 years ago from the Ghurka outlet store @Woodbury.

I have a brand new, never used Peal and Company 18" Trolley Case in British Tan. It retails for $2,500 and I am willing to sell it for the best reasonable offer.

This is a nice piece. I have had one for several years and it is wearing very nicely. Has a nice patina already. I amazed at how much I can pack in it.

Was browsing this thread last night and then I came across this article a few minutes ago. It looks like some production is moving back to the US: http://dieworkwear.com/post/50428510091/vintage-ghurkas
