i do agree that it's very overpriced in US, as cute as it is.
That is very true, I guess I just don't like how it is much "floppier" than most leathers and canvases being much more stiff. I also don't like its certain sheen... But I must agree with you about the scratches and the rain!but it still beats PVC, no?
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.
There's been plenty of bag-over-the-head wacking over this.. lol. In regards to the bumpkin- yikes! I'd be stunned if anyone asked me that.. was it supposed to be some kind of a back-handed compliment or was she looking for a subscription? Some people.. geez..If my boyfriend started moaning about my Les Pliages I'd whack him on his head for being snobbish Lol!
I don't think they look like 'makeup counter freebies'... IMO they are quite stylish in a low key casual way and sooo practical. That said, someone has once asked me which magazine I got my Le Pliage from - but they were a "country bumpkin"
