The Saint Lucie & Beluga would be other options to consider. Unless you would prefer something with shoulder straps.
The St. Louis bag is a bit thin and not lined with yellow canvas as are many other Goyard bags. All the weight on Louis seems to be unevenly distributed. I believe this is why it eventually wears away the thin straps. There might be curing techniques to prevent the leather from becoming worn and brittle.
The Ambassade seems like a more durable bag and you can separately buy handles for the Ambassade in different colors to mix and match.
Costs $125 - or it did cost that. I had it done a few weeks before the price increase. I had it done in Boston, but I'm sure that you can have it done at any Barneys.
We talked about this earlier in the thread, so here are the photos of my St. Louis PM with the reinforced corners. As I mentioned, I'm not so crazy about them because they're so small. Ah well - it's still Goyard!
Im kinda considering a Moynat cabas quattro at the momend XD
Hey Edia,I have a Moynat Quattro in Toile and in Leather and its beautiful.The toile is really tough and I love the fact that its lined, Have a few Goyards and a Neverfull(indestructible)But its the print which Im a fan of.
