  1. Just curious on your positions on what each of these terms mean. I've seen certain online stores that categorize their purses this way, so I have a general idea of their shapes, but I was wondering if there was an industry-wide definition for each one. Is there overlap between the terms? Am I missing any terms?

    For example, I had posted a thread a while back asking for recommendations for a shoulder bag (at the time, I meant "anything that fits over the shoulder"), but after hearing some suggestions, another PFer commented that those were more like a tote rather than a shoulder bag... which made me question what these terms meant...

    Can anyone help? TIA!

  5. Very cool :smile: I've always wondered what a bag needed to be classified as a "hobo", since I've seen a wide variety of styles. Now I know :yahoo:
