Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)? - Page 1599

post #23971 of 38319

 

New here. I've run this bag by a few friends and they've all told me I'm f%&#ing crazy for thinking about it, so I figured I'd ask some folks with better taste ;)

 

http://store.prada.com/en/IT/man/bags/weekenders/VA0749_PEO_F0H97

 

I've thought about it often since I first felt it a few months ago, but haven't quite bit the bullet yet for one reason in particular: I have never used a bag without a shoulder strap before. If this thing came with a shoulder strap, I'd already have one in each color.

 

Anyways, 1) Thoughts?; 2) Anyone have experience with this particular leather? I'm not very careful with some of my things and each time I've been in the store, the staff has told me to simply not scratch it in the first place (no one is willing to admit that it might be a scratch magnet)

I honestly don't see the appeal of this bag. So yeah, I'd side with your friends. But it's your cash.

Anyone ever handled Gravity Popes own brand shoes? Wondering if they are worth it at the $175-$200 range or if I should look for something else at a higher price.

Look nice, but the photos here:

Make them look a bit bulkier than I'd like.

Any recs on black shoes in a similar price range? Need to be pretty simple 'cause I plan to wear these in my SW&D outfit too.

I think it has something to do with the shape of toe.
