I'm not a fan of their design, it's a little bit to boring for me, but the quality and craftmanship are superb! It's a swiss company with long tradition, their shoes are really popular in germany, switzerland, france and other european countries. . .
Not all styles are great i admit.. but the quality is up there. From leather to stitching to all other details - excellent.
The Bally Tango messenger bag with its ivory-crimson strap was very popular amongst Japanese students for quite a few years... where else in Asia cantina2001?
I had a Bally bag which I recently sold - it was lovely but made from buffalo leather and just too big and heavy for me. It was very well made. I think they need a bit of "spicing up" as I agree with other posters that they are a bit boring.
