I don't own either but just my own thoughts are the Deauville is a much nicer style over a Speedy. I love that style and of course the structure (no sagging). Speedy 35 is very much casual and a throw in and go type of bag, whereas the Deauville is more classy and formal. Depends though of course on what condition the preloved Deauville is in. The Deauville is much more expensive than the Speedy 35 - say if you can get a great deal on the Deauville I would say go for it. Speedy 35 is reasonably priced and available anytime.
I own the Speedy, but not the Deauville. I think the Deauville is more structured, so there's less flexibility in the bag. I like the flexibility/give in the Speedy, so that's where my vote goes. Good luck choosing!
Thanks guys!!! I am leaning towards Speedy 35 in damier.......... and also would love the Mono Speedy 40 for travel....... yes i think the deauville is too structured and can be "stiff". i'm very casual wtih my clothes..... jeans tshirt . thx for your time!
I own the Deauville in Mono and Damier Ebene, and I find it to be a great every day bag. I like the fact that I don't need a purse organizer when I'm using it because the pockets and straps are already built in! That being said, I'm looking at getting a Mon Monogram Speedy 35, too. Though I have other Speedy bags, I don't have a mono 35 in my collection, and I want to have that style as well. GL deciding!
