Have been wanting to get hand carry bag for my travels for a while and I have settled for the keepall 55. But now I'm having trouble deciding between the monogram, which I think is such an iconic piece and the quintessence of travel luggage; but at the same time I feel like the damier is a bit more modern, casual and less flashy (I am still a college student).
What do you guys think?? :biggrin:

As much as I love the mono keepall, I think the graphite is better suited for traveling since you don't have to worry about vachetta staining.

ITA! I have the 45 Graphite Bandouliere and I do sometimes lust after the monogram. But then I all I have to do is go on ebay and look at some of the ones that have been through the ringer and I remind myself that graphite will last longer AND it's less recognizable which I like. I carry it with my bloomsbury so it's like matching, but not really. ;)

I don't remember what sizes they come in, but a good compromise would be the macassar, you get the monogram without the vachetta. HTH!

What about monogram Macassar? I was just going through the same dilemma and settled on Macassar because I wanted the classic monogram look without the worries of vachetta.
