I was talking with a few guys about my bags lately...including my DH...He lets me know that he really doesnt think thank Damiers are pretty.....and not much to look at....some of the guys agree and say that its not really femine looking.....boring was another word they used....hmmmmmm....

I have had a issue with Damier once, when I thought that it was alittle drabby looking but...compared to the styles right now, which are really colorful or cool colors like white....it does seem a bit..dark...

But can it be alittle masculine? Too dark? My hubby thinks so..he still refers to it as the "Man bags"....:rolleyes:

I think the Damier print is really elegant and looks very dressy compared to the Monogram print which I think is more casual. I have both prints and love them both!!! However, I recently purchased the Damier Macao clutch pochette which I think is geared more towards men BUT I love it! It's roomier than the regular pochettes (I have a mono version, too!), so I like to carry the Macao on the weekends so that I don't have to lug around a heavy purse.

Elegant is a good word for it...but is it pretty???

I am always drawn to the damier pattern. I have to show GREAT restraint not to buy all the bags and accessories. I'm not sure exactly what it is, but I love damier on everything. My husband's wallet is damier and he also feels it's a very masculine looking pattern. I don't think the women's bags look at all masculine. I always get more compliments on my damier bags than my mono bags. I defintiely prefer damier over mono. The azur is great to lighten things up a bit. But that ebony damier, man it is GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've never thought of the Damier print as manly. I suppose it's because the design of the bags are quite feminine, which offsets the masculinity of the actual print. The Azur is the hottest. I've got my sights set on an Azur Saleya PM. I think Damier is very classy.

Yeah it's dark but I would never call it manly. It's an absolutely elegant workhorse for me. My Saleya PM has gone on more job interviews and on more business trips than I can count and she never fails me no matter the occasion, weather or bumps of airports, security, restaurants, you name it! Suit and pumps or t-shirt and jeans...works every time!
