I have two large Billy (lagoon and feu), Tom (grey), Twee (python), and Andre (karung snake),
and Fernand (suede Chamois). I love them ALL!!! I used to own four more but sold them (aldo,tom,billy, and yves).
I am happy that JD opened a store in NY. I live in CA but would love to go to NY just to visit his boutique! So happy to see other JD lovers!
I went to Paris last year and saw a "jackie" bag in one of the stores next to our hotel. I wasn't able to visit his boutique though I wish I had time to. I bought the jackie in moka online and love it! It has a lot of compartments and it keeps me organized. I also have the joss clutch - though I'm not sure it's convenient to get into but I like it. I also just recently bought the wallet and LEO bag from the new New York store. They shipped it to me in SF. The small sizeof the leo is perfect for when you don't have to carry a lot of stuff and it fits nicely on your shoulder. The leather does get nicer the longer you have it. I noticed the leather on my jackie bag (which I've had for over a year now, shines compared to my new leo bag which in time I'm sure the leather will weather nicely as well)...
I'll try to take pics tomorrow and post. The Leo is a smaller version of the Bob bag. I had to have Yves, the manager at the store describe it to me and give me dimensions, etc. It'll be nice that you get to see everything and try them on when you go to NY.
I was on the JD website (I love the fact that you hear little children pronouncing the style name with French accents when you click on each bag!), and I have decided that I def. need to check the store out next time I am in NYC. I love the look of the bags, they are just my style.
I am considering the original Twee - in black, red, or zebra. (Am leaning towards zebra, believe it or not. I wear lots of solid colors and simple designs, so the zebra would be perfect).
Where else can you get JD these days in the States? I am having difficulty locating retailers.
j415- Thank you so much for the pictures. The picture with the jacket really helped get a sized perspective. The Leo looks like it's a nice size hobo. Not too big not too small. Is that the JG Polo wallet?
Loquita- If you see something you like online you can always call Jerome Dreyfuss in NYC. I think they ship. I haven't found too many retailers in America.
loquita - i contacted the store and they shipped to me in san francisco. i'm sure if you know what you want, they will ship to you.
lulu - i'll post pictures of my polo wallet too. the leo was smaller than i thought when i received it but it is a good smaller than medium size type of bag. i think my pictures may be a little deceiving. the black wallet is my small LV wallet. i tried to show what i could fit comfortably without overstuffing the bag.
