Lotuff & Clegg Bags? - Page 3

post #31 of 33

Faith in Lotuff restored.

 

Joe, the owner of the co., subscribes to this thread, saw my post above the day I posted it and made it right. Just received the remainder of my order plus a complimentary leather folio.

 

I've been using the chocolate zip-top briefcase daily since early December and am very happy with it. The leather is supple (no flaking, despite being unlined, contrary what's reported earlier in this thread), the color is rich (darker in natural light than what's shown on the Lotuff website), and I've yet to see a crooked stitch or problem with the hardware.

There is "Lotuff Korea", as well, who has stolen their brand name and logo. However the designs for the Korean brand are really nothing like the real thing. There's not much Lotuff can do about it, as I understand it. Korea is definitely known for copycatting, and I suppose the same thing happened in Hong Kong (or maybe it was the same people). I have seen the Korean Lotuff first hand, and it's a joke. I mean they're fine if they were just some random cheap bags that hadn't stolen someone else's brand... I just don't quite understand: why steal the Lotuff name? It's sort of a niche product anyway and it's not like Koreans know who Lotuff is. Hell hardly any Americans have heard of it. Such a weird name to steal.

 

Lotuff does distribute and sell their authentic, American-made products in Asia in select Club Monaco stores. I have seen them first hand in both Korea (Lotte department store, Myeong-dong Club Monaco) and Hong Kong (Causeway Bay Club Monaco).

 

I own a Lotuff duffle, a Tripp handbag for my wife, a canvas and leather briefcase. The quality on everything is near flawless. I am a happy Lotuff customer and a fan. I've also seen Clegg's products at The Armoury Hong Kong, and of course those are stunning as well. I actually wasn't aware of the background on Lotuff & Clegg until after I had purchased my items. I just stumbled on the Clegg duffle in Hong Kong and subsequently found this on Styleforum.

I've had the chestnut duffle for 1.5 years and same thing... flawless. Initially I thought I would have liked it to be lined, but I think unlined is the way to go.
