I recently took inventory of the bags in my closet and came to the sad realization that I am really old. I stumbled upon some dusty Coach purses that are now identified as classic or vintage. ush: To be specific, the Coach bags I have include: tan Station Bag, black Court Bag, mahagony Sidepack, mahogany Duffle Sac, mahogany Backpack, black Backpack, black Metropolitan Brief, and a red Soho leather bag. I got these bags between the ages of 18 and 21. They were perfect during my college years when L.L. Bean attire was practically the uniform on campus. Recently, I have only used the black backpack (when traveling) and sidepack (while roaming around Italy during my honeymoon six years ago). Oddly, I cannot seem to part with these bags despite the fact that they are rarely used. Flash forward a few years (okay 12 years), I see Coach bags everywhere, albeit in much more interesting forms and mutations. There is obviously a mass love and appreciation of Coach bags. When did they become so popular? Why does it seem as if everyone has one? I apologize for my seemingly idiotic questions but, honestly, have I been missing out? Please enlighten.
