I know there is a topic discussing this sorta .. I am a fan of BOTH Coach and LV and am torn ... I was a HUGE Coach fan for several years. Recently switched to the "brown side" ... however when I saw the new coach denim bag immediately thought it was very similiar to a speedy and have been seriously contemplating buying it. I did buy the patchwork duffle which was very speedyish the day Coach released it. I didn't like sooo much white so returned it. However I have personally been debating between that very bag and a LV speedy. I don't like the big denim stripe on that bag but do love how worry free coach bags are. That's my fear of buying the LV speedy (the handles darn it!) ... and sorry I don't like the Damier line so that bag doesn't solve my dilemna... I bought a LV LE bag and now won't use it because of how much it cost .. I'm afraid of something happening to it so it sits on my dresser taunting me every morning!! so is coach the answer or do I buy the LV speedy and say heck with it .. if the handles get marks/spots .. so what? .... ack!!
