Before I bought my khaki/coal Large Bleecker Flap I had never regularly carried a bag in Coach signature fabric. Because I really love the bag, I have been carrying it almost non-stop since I bought it and I've noticed that my sweaters pill like crazy on the side where I most commonly carry my bag. It seems to have no effect on the bag itself, which still looks as nice as ever, but it is ruining my sweaters and sweater dresses. So I think I will need to wear this bag with a jacket that won't pill (i.e. no wool coats) or with outfits that aren't knit. In the winter, that really restricts my options. I may just have to wear a leather bag for the rest of the season. Given this discovery (maybe other people knew it all along), I will have to seriously consider whether any signature bags are worth it in the future. And I again reiterate that I REALLY hope they do a line of fall bags in the coated canvas! I wasn't completely sold on the idea of the coated, but not pilling garments is a BIG plus for me.
