This Gucci bag is $595 which is a little over your budget but I think it's a fabulous choice. It also comes in black.

Hmm, none of the bags I can think of in that price range right now are what I'd call "timeless classics", but Coach has some nice simple options. Think "simple", not a lot of logo's detailing, or funky shapes. A plain leather bucket hobo is always a stylish option. What about an LV pouchette accessoires? Or this Damier? http://www.eluxury.com/browse/product_detail.jhtml?styleid=10398710&SectionID=6000

Or this one? http://www.eluxury.com/browse/product_detail.jhtml?styleid=10295279&SectionID=6000

I would get a LV mono piece. Maybe a speedy 25, it doesn't get much more timeless and classic than a speedy. I know it's $565 but I have never been very good with budgets.

I agree, a Speedy!

Definitely something mono LV. I think all the speedys are over the $500, but something along those lines. Although the damier is nice, too...:yes:

For $398 each, I think either of these Coach bags would be excellent. I really LOVE the pleated hobo as a classic bag that you could wear forever. The style of the satchel is fabulous, but I would prefer it in a more neutral color and leather over fabric.

I agree with the Gucci and LV recommendations.

I can't imagine most of the other currently "in" bags/designers being around as long as these already have been.
