Good points. At a higher pricepoint, there are more options, but agree that in the approximately $1,000 to 1,200 or less range, hard to beat Glaser. May I ask what you paid for an April in Paris bag? Does it include the bee logo? Was not familiar with her, but am intrigued. Her bags start in the $2800 range. No bee logo, unless you want it. Fully bespoke and the sky's the limit in terms of what she can do. She believes her items speak for themselves, and I couldn't imagine her "requiring" anything that the customer didn't want. Huge range of colors, hides, etc., completely done by hand (no glue, no machines.) saddle stitching, and absolutely top-level leathers used. More pricey than glaser, for sure, but i was sort of speaking earlier in response to those who said glaser was worth several times its pricepoint, or close to Hermes/AiP. I don't think it is, but again, for $1000 or less, I don't think Glaser could be beat assuming you like the standard/relatively limited number of styles available (though, again, that damn logo issue would be a problem.) My hope would be perhaps they read this thread, and revise their policy about the logo.
