Made a Custom Goyard!


Howz that ban?
Nov 6, 2006
So my DH carries this hideous little shoulder thingie from REI--and I HATE IT! He REALLY liked my Fidji Hobo from Goyard--so I went down to the store in SF (to see Deborah--she ROCKS!), Anyhoo--I looked around and they didn't really have anything that would work for him--they have a great messenger type bag (I forget what it's called) but, that was WAY to big for depair, I played around for bags for me (the Saigon bag in Navy is TO DIE FOR!) and then I saw the perfect little thing; The Yona Dinner bag (in Red). Technically this is a ladies bag but, I personally, think is uni-sex. The one problem was that the strap wouldn't fit across the chest. So I asked Deborah is she had any other straps I could try. Skeptical, she let me fool around with one of their Luggage Shoulder Straps in the matching color.

And Presto! A new bag was born! It looked PERFECT! Not too big and would hold all his boy-stuff (his HUGE wallet, and business card holder...not to menion the cellphone!) but, it would fit him comfortably across the shoulder! AWESOME!

So, I walked into Goyard and customized my sweetie a bag...right there! They Rogelio Ortega (the Boutique Director) was there as well thought the bag was pretty cool (Rogelio tried it on and said he'd recommend it to folks too!--If I said it was okay...since I invented it:supacool: Natch, I said "UH YEAH!"

So, if you're in SF and in the market, swing by and ask 'em about it!!

Ha-ha! This just made my whole CHRISTMAS! I had more fun playing in there than he'll ever have with the bag!

He's here now (in another part of the house) but, maybe tomorrow I can snap a pic and post it!)
That would be HILARIOUS! My hunny said he was feeling sick and might stay home tomorrow but, I was like "NO! Go to work!"

I wanna' post that pic!
I totally agree! I think I'll call up Rogelio at the Boutique and tell him so:yes:

My hunny is still here...lingering and taking his time to get to the office. I'm nudging him gently so I can bust open his bag and show ya!

Image test of the Goyard bag....if this works, I'll post more...If NOT...I'll try something else.

Here'st the carrier bag!
Yay! This is working! I'll post pics of the ACTUAL bag now!

Here's the bag. It's a red Yona bag with a luggage shoulder strap.


A medium range shot of the bag.


A close up of the way the luggage strap is "attached". My hunny will love it! I'll ask him if he wants it personalized later.

I hope you guys all like it!
