brentwood vs houston

  1. hi girls!! just want to ask whats the difference between the two??

    i saw this peppermint houston on ebay and im thinking of getting it...need some advice...thanks! :smile:
  2. I have the peppermint Houston and I love it! I believe someone said in a similar thread that the brentwood is difficult to get in and out of if I remember correctly.
  3. thanks so much nola!!! im so excited! ;)
  4. houston, i'm not fancy on the adjustable straps.
  5. The Brentwood straps are a little longer, which is key for me. When I tried on the Houston, it did not make a very comfortable shoulder bag. Of course, the Brentwood only comes in a few colors and I don't think has been made as long.
  6. I like the brentwood.
  7. The Brentwood is larger and newer than the Houston.

    The bad part to me is the fact that the Brentwood is said to have a synthetic interior whereas the interior in the Houston is leather. How could LV have made made a better, larger bag than the Houston but then cheat us on the leather interior? Oh yeah, capitalism at work. Not fair. JMO.
  8. thanks! now if only ill know if the bag is authentic :sweatdrop:
  9. I like the Houston better because of its handles.
  10. Really??? Is it synthetic leather or fabric like the reade??

    In LV's own words: Textile lining... It just blows the whole deal for me. Why would they charge that amount and then cheat you out of a leather lining? It's just not right....

  12. ^^^ Thanks! That is a major difference!
  13. I do love the Houston (I have 2) but I think if you want a good shoulder bag, get the Brentwood. Unless you're really stuck on the peppermint color, you should get that because that was the only shoulder-ish bag they made in that color.
  14. go for houston :smile: it is such a great bag!

  15. I agree...
