i recently got a le pliage and my coworker told me it's an old lady's purse. and i was a little bit shocked and defended my bag right away. i said that it's not and it's a classic.
That's my husband's line about the Speedy. Any Speedy.

He's also not a fan of Le Pliage. He says the nylon looks like it's worth MUCH less than the price tag. I'm getting both at some point anyway.

High five! I do.. today I wore it and he commented, and I informed him that I threw a cereal box, cream cheese, and a bag of mandarins in it when I went to the store to pick up breakfast food and he couldn't believe it fit all that stuff in there.. HA!

I know, it's amazing how much fits in there. I have the XL with long handles and I carried 5 gallons of water in it!

Ignore your BF's griping! What do men know about ladies' bags? Last year in a French cafe I saw a very chic lady with a small black le Pliage. It totally complemented her very pulled-together, 'less is more' look. No way did either she or her bag look cheap!

I have a large blue and a large black Eiffel, and from someone (actually someones- DH is, too!)- who is very picky... I think the Pliage is very chic! I use it most when we're travelling or spending a day in the city. It's very light, comfortable, and stylish. :yes:

I personally don't like it, but that is mostly because it is nylon...
but it still beats PVC, no? :yahoo:

Nylon isn't lux like leather, for sure. But it can be very durable, even more so than leather (like backpacks), don't have to worry about scratches or rain. I think they have their place. :smile:

Here in London the Le pliage bags are popular more than ever, especially on young girls (say 15 - 40 olds), 'old ladies' wear the backpacks or old style Mulberry...


My DH thinks he knows the fashion and hates my mono speedy and whenever I wear it he tells me how ugly the bag is...:rolleyes: so I just tell him I'm not interested in his oppinion and hate his collection of Carhart shorts (I actually quite like him in shorts;)

On the other hand he looooves Longchamp bags, he got me the 70 trolley and the largest Le pliage and he even got himself leather messenger style last spring.
I have 2 of their totes as well, one in billberry and one in the new lilac colour, can't wait to start wearing it in the spring and also got a little coin purse whre I keep my bangles when we go away for the weekend.

I'm actually little bit hooked on Longchamp, always eyeing the stands and thinking of the next purchase. I love their leather bags as well but they are bit pricey, £400-£500

Anyway, DO NOT listen to your boyfriend and enjoy your longchamp, they are a great value for the money so he shouldn't be moaning! :girlsigh:

I'm still on the fence. I like how the bag looks on some people... on others, no. SOs might dislike it because it looks like a simple bag for quite a sum of money.
