Maybe there’s a thread on this already—please redirect. Or maybe just no need for such a thread; however, this bag, if authentic, needs such a thread: the New Amsterdam.


To bag experts—why? @papertiger????

Why?

Because 1980s :facepalm:
Oh, you’re saying, like, for sure, you know, like, the New Woman in the wide-shouldered suit needed a briefcase attached to an expensive skin purse to properly impress her “9 to 5” colleagues?
Oh, wait, I did that! Except with those shoulder pads I could properly balance a bag on one and a briefcase with strap on the other—had to balance well on the damn 4-inch heels office dress required. :P

I know recently I’ve already posted about this one in another thread (someone asked about it in ID this bag) but this is the one I immediately think of when I see the question of this thread...

Guess what decade it’s from? 1980s. :biggrin:
I laugh heartedly because I actually like this one! but your point I get!
