Although I am usually a premium designer shopper, I've always liked D & B bags, just never pulled my wallet out for one. However, I'm very attracted to the suede Derby hobo in honey. Does anyone have this bag? Your thoughts? Which size is better for everyday casual wear? Is the suede good quality or very rough feeling? Would love to see a photo of your bag -- I've only seen the photos on their web site. Can't tell if the color is very orange-red or more tan...
Thanks!

Dooney suede is generally excellent quality. I like the Derby line, but don't have the hobo. Checking the measurements I'd go for the large.... you lose interior space on handbags where the top folds over, as in the Derby. The large hobo is just slightly larger than the regular size, but the extra inch in length will come in handy for everyday use.
Suede is beautiful, but for everyday use, I prefer pebbled leather to suede. I think suede is more vulnerable to dirt, stains, and wear. Just my opinion. For wearing less often, Dooney suede is wonderful.

Thanks! That's very helpful input. I've just bought four new bags (one LV, three :shocked: Polene) so can't order this one for a while. Will check back down the road to see if it's still available. Looks like a great bag for fall -- suede with a color pop. Also I like the way they have the bag branded on the closure rather than the rectangular brass nameplate.

I love the new D closure too. I don't mind a leather patch name plate, but like many others, I don't really like the metal branded square name plate.

I have the Derby hobo in the regular size in the color Beige. I love, love this bag! The suede is at best I would describe luscious and soft. The regular size is pretty roomy. This hobo is very comfortable to wear. I highly recommend!

Thanks all. It looks like I should have pulled out my wallet and purchased this bag when I first saw it -- it's no longer available in that color and I don't like the colors they're offering for it now. Lesson learned! I'll keep looking and see if it comes back in the same or a similar color. :sad:
