Just purchased the Darcy Hobo in black pebbled/washed lambskin from Nordstroms. For a while now I have been looking at the Satchel, but because the additional strap did not seem long enough to accomodate crossbody, I opted for the hobo. After wearing this bag for the second day now, I have discovered that it is indeed HEAVY, but overall manageable. My only real source of discontent is the price. Because I have always been accustomed to high-end bags more often than not made in Italy, I am having a real issue with paying almost a thousand for a bag made in China. Since I have never owned an Alexander Wang, I have to ask the question "are his bags of superior quality and will they stand the test of time." While I am sure no one can truly answer that question given everyone treats their bags differently, are there any girls on this forum who have (or currently) owned Alexander Wang and thus far are happy with the quality. For the most part this bag looks every bit as well made and expensive as any of the bags costing a few hundred more and made in Italy. Right now I am just tying to figure out if this bag is truly worth what I paid for it. Any and all comments appreciated.
