Dh bought me the Cognac large duffle for Christmas :smile:. I'm loving the duffle kits and the option to change the look of the bag. But...what color with the cognac? The only one I've seen is parchment with the brass (the cognac has brass as well). Any opinions?

Carnelian for sure! Also cobalt. Have fun!

I don't think about the metal. Hmmm. The camel has the brass, but I wonder if you really need to match that part. It would only be the rivets on the holes.

Carnelian was my first thought as well. You could always hang both hangtags on the bag to have a 2-tone hardware look, too - make it cohesive if the contrasting rivets would bother you. Good luck deciding!

PS - I think carnelian was on sale on Macy's web site. :graucho:

I second the dual hang tag idea

You can do dual tassels, too ;) ... Initially I was bummed that while the grey/fuchsia Textured Leather Duffle comes with silver hardware, the duffle kit is brass...If you can swap out the ball chain on the hang tag, tho, you're down to the eyelets and it's not that noticeable...Even on my Tourmaline/Fuchsia Duffle (I'm waiting on another duffle kit cuz I wanted another fuchsia tassel set) ..Lord and Taylor has the duffle kits on sale for $73.49 and more colors left than anyone else..They still have yellow, cobalt, parchment, fuchsia, black and carnelian.

I just bought the duffle in Chambray Blue. What color kits would look good on the Chambray?
I just love this color! I think cobalt, sunflower and fuchsia would look lovely.

Enjoy carrying your new bag!

Just wondering about my new burnt orange duffle that I haven't used yet...thinking about using it probably through spring...other than the camel duffle kit...what are thoughts about cobalt or emerald? Leaning towards cobalt, but must own something in emerald :smile: Or just leave duffle as is? TIA for any advice!

Both colors would be pretty but using the emerald with the orange would remind me of a pumpkin! How about fuchsia or sunflower?

Ha! See that's why I had to get advice...didn't even think pumpkin, but you're right! :smile: I just have to find something in that emerald color :smile: I was tempted to get the emerald duffle instead, but love the color orange so figure I'd start with that color. Hmmm sunflower might make it more springy :smile: Thanks!
