My bag obsession is relatively new and I don't know all the terminology. What is meant by an East/West bag? North/South bag? I am sure there are other phrases that I am not familiar with. Anyone who wants to educate me, please feel free.

Yes, E/W bags are generally wider than they are tall. N/S bags are taller than they are wide.

Hi everyone!

I have seen handbags being described as "east/west"...what does this mean?
:confused1:
For instance, at elux.com they have this:

Dior Flight Shearling East/West Bag




Thanks!

see how the bag is short, but wide?
It's 'runs' East and West.
A North South would be a taller, but not as wide bag, 'running' North adn South.

Thank you! :yes:

It makes sense! I had seen this term describing certain handbags before, and foolishly thought of it being popular in Asia/US...how dumb. :s

I have not come across the North/South, yet.

Thank you again, Swanky!!!
