That's my husband's line about the Speedy. Any Speedy.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.
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.
