  1. Good afternoon Coachies! I am looking for a specific Parker 18 in the sand taupe with nickel hardware. The only place I’ve been able to find it is from Monnier Freres. I’ve never heard of them before ( I am in the USA). Was wondering what people’s experiences were with them. Is it legit? thanks

  2. I have a purse coming from them that I bought thru Farfetch (which I've bought a few bags from), so I'm guessing they're legit. It has been 8 days since i bought the bag, and it still hasn't shipped, but I'm guessing that's because of the virus. They had the Tabby 26 in chalk for 269 with shipping - I couldn't pass it up! 9E34FE93-B53A-4412-9337-C78B6AC5A4A5.jpeg

  3. I've never heard of them, but when I try to access their website I get this:

  4. Weird! I don't get that message (and I have a full suite of protection), and they even participate in Rakuten, so it has to be a legit site.
     
  5. Thank you for sharing. Please let me know what happens. I reached out to my SA and he said the particular bag I’m wanting was only made for the international market so he can’t order it for me. I would love it, but am trying to do my due diligence first to make sure it’s a safe place to purchase from.
     
  6. Interesting. Thank you for sharing.

    What is Rakuten? I think I may have vaguely heard of it, but not 100% sure what it is. Thanks
    EDITED: I just looked it up. . :smile:
     
  7. I got my order today from Monnier Freres via Farfetch! It's perfect! Definitely would buy from them again. It came completely wrapped and with a dust bag. (Sorry for the bad pics - it's late!) 09ADA025-9069-4716-A535-4D5FD3F9C581.jpeg

  9. I placed my order for the Parker 18, it’s supposed to be here on the 20th!

  10. Can't wait to see it! The parker 18s are soooo cute!
     
  11. Here it is! I love it. Can’t believe how fast it came since it shipped from Paris. Thanks again for sharing your purchase. I probably wouldn’t have ordered it if you hadn’t shared. :smile:

  12. Ooh I like the silver! It looked overly shiny in all the photos I've seen. Gorgeous bag - enjoy!

  13. Thanks to this thread, I ended up ordering an item from both Farfetch & Monnier Freres. One arrives today & the other tomorrow (super fast shipping). To my knowledge, neither item I ordered were readily available on any US sites (Coach, dept stores, etc) so thank you! I'll post photos when the both arrive.

  15. Here's the first one...my first belt bag. I know I'd only wear something like this during the warmer months & I loved the color combo. My phone, Galaxy S8+, does fit in the back zip but it can't then zip closed. Not a dealbreaker. That said, the main opening is hard to get into so I have to check it out more & then decide. Shipping was super fast, constant status updates & packed very well. Even if I don't keep this, I'd definitely order from them again.
    2nd purchase should arrive today.
