Does anyone know the Bobbies brand?

Did anyone have any experience with the Bobbies brand (https://www.bobbies.com/en/men)? They're present on Yoox, but otherwise I don't know much about them.

I've been meaning to purchase a 48h bag from them (https://www.bobbies.com/en/positano/4000727600-bagage-48h-positano-navy-blue-3663902407970.html), but I'm not certain it's the right choice. Perhaps there are better alternatives out there?
Yes, that a French brand, part of the new shoe trend in France. The design are rather fashion forward and the quality reflects the relatively low price. It appeals to customers who want leather shoes but really casual design. That being said, I don't really know about their bags. I guess it's OK (not too bad but not an hidden gem either) and that the quality is relatively similar to their shoes.

Thanks! Then it seems it's better to get something else, any bag (luggage) brands you'd recommend? Maybe Mismo (although that's much more expensive)? Here's a model I'm looking at: https://www.mismo.dk/collections/tr...italian-canvas/products/m-s-supply-army-cuoio

There's also Eleventy (but I don't know much about this brand either), for example this one looks nice:

No sorry, I don't know much about this particular segment of the market. Mismo is nice but I guess it's up to you to decide if the difference is worth the extra 400 euros. I guess you'll get better materials, hardware and finishing. The Eleventy one is mostly made of leather, but almost the same price as the Mismo bag. 650 euros is not that much for a quality weekender bag in leather, it might come with some imperfections (not necessarily visible as it is suede leather).

Thanks! I guess the only disadvantage with the Eleventy bag is that it'd quite easily get dirty and it might be hard to clean it up compared to those Mismo bags.
