Legacy Thompson Hobo-- a bag on steroids-- HELP!

  1. Hi All-- well you can search through my many threads in just weeks to see the ordeal it has been to find a new handbag. I thought the Thompson Hobo would be the solution and it came today--- WHOAH!!! IT'S GINORMOUS!!!

    I know there are many out there that like this handbag, but it's really way too, TOO big for me. The frustrating thing is when i called the Flagship Store in NY i asked if it was about the same size as the Large Bleeker Flap, they said YES! Ah well-- such is life.

    So i'm thinking of exchanging it for the new Julia Leather Shoulder Flap. Come to think about it, i wonder if the SA in NY thought i was speaking of this bag. Here's the link:

    Has anyone actually seen this bag? I have the measurements, obviously, but it's nothing compared to real life. Is this one about the same size as the Bleeker Large Flap?

    As an aside, the Thompson line of leather is the most luxurious i've seen at COACH-- hence the price. But please Ladies/Gentlemen, let me know what you know about the Julia bag. Thank you! :sad:
  2. I'm confused. The measurements on the Thompson hobo are 16 3/8 (L) x 15 3/8 (H) x 2 (W) and the measurements on the Bleecker Large Flap are 10 (L) x 10 (H) x 4 (W). The SA said that the Thompson hobo was the same size as the large flap? The Julia is 10 1/2 (L) x 10 1/2 (H) x 1 1/2 (W) which is close in size to the large flap than the hobo is. Am I thinking of the wrong bag? Is there a different large flap? I have the large flap and it's a bit bigger than a legacy slim flap but smaller than a legacy ali. I don't consider it a large bag, at least not for me. Anyway, the Julia is pretty but according to the measurements it's slim. I'd be sure that you'll be able to fit everything you need in it. Congrats and good luck deciding!
  3. Thank you for replying! The more i think of it, the more i believe that the SA got confused about the bags i asked her to compare. i mean how can you say that the Thompson and Bleeker Flap are about the same size?! The Julia is also called a Hobo bag online and the catalog calls it a Flap. That's the only thing i can figure out.

    As for the slimness, that was my problem with the Large Bleeker Flap-- too bulky. I was just wondering if IRL the bag was as pretty in the picture. :confused1:
  4. I really like the Julia, it looks so nice in the Chocolate brown, The Thompson hobo just looks so big!!! Is the leather any different on this bag, opposed to the other leather ones?
  5. From what i was informed in the COACH store in NY/MAdison Ave. the Julia is the same leather as the Thompson Hobo-- soft, pebbled (not as pebbled as the Chelsea line), and a bit thicker than the Bleeker line.

    I did end up exchanging the Thompson Hobo for the Julia, and my SA here in DC overnight the delivery because i've been there purchasing and exchanging-- so hopefully Monday i'll be receiving it. I'll let you all know how it goes. :sweatdrop:
  6. I hope this one is THE one! Good luck!
  7. Gotta post pics when it comes!!!!!
  8. Hope you get the Coach bag of your dreams real soon. Dont forget post the eye candy when it arrives!!:nuts:
  9. I have had my eye on this one! The Julia LOOKS like it might be a lovely bag...not too big, and a nice drop. WHERE are your PICS???We must see so we can be enabled even more!:yes:
  10. I think I just bought the Thompson Hobo. Did the SA show you the attachment where you can wear it crossbody. I got this bag today and it actually made me rethink my Lily purchase. Although it is HUGE I love it.
  11. :confused1:MY bad...

    I got a Felicia Duffle NOT the Thompson bag.

    What attachment is it with that you can wear the Felicia Slim Duffle cross body.
    I would like to know about this.

  13. Ok Liz.
