. I'm sure I will like them! I like Florentine, maybe my next DB purchase will be Florentine. The one thing that I like from Florentine is the logo also leather. Much prefer the leather rather the metal one in Pebble.
I agree. I prefer the leather logo patch on the Florentine collection to the metal logos
on most of the other DB collections. If there is a removeable logo 'charm', on any
handbag, I take it off (to lighten the bag and also for a more understated look).
The Alto collection has very understated embossed Dooney logos, no metal or
leather patch, and a leather hangtag that can be removed. I love Alto leather, but the
interiors don't have the typical Dooney zip and pockets that I've come to rely on.
I bought a DB drawstring that had a D and B large charm hang tag. I couldn't wait to
take it off. It's beautifully crafted, but the noise made me nuts, not to mention the added weight of such a well made bag accessory. A friend, whose
initials are DB was delighted to have the charm.
Talking about DB drawstrings, I've noticed that the placement and size of the
interior zip pocket can vary quite a bit from style to style. Depending upon what
you use that zip pocket to store, on some styles I find it's too small.
I've learned overtime not to assume that styles that look the same are the same. There can be differences in dimensions (length, depth, height), strap/handle drop (and configuration), interior and exterior pockets, along with the change in leather from one collection to another. I have to remind myself to check all the details before I order what looks like a bag I already have in another color or leather. Sometimes even an inch in
dimensions can make a difference in what fits inside (depending on how much
junk one carts around!)
