Now that I have seen many of the bags IRL again, I have to revise my list. I loved the MC Speedy IRL more than I thought I would, and my DH was actually fascinated with all of the brass and various locks. He kept telling our SA, with his Americanized Irish accent, "yes, yes, quite brilliant. It's brilliantly made," and actually loved the bag (as much as any man could) until he opened the front pocket and found the price I will say this much, though, the man has taste--the bag he liked the most was the Le Fabuleux. He asked why I wasn't looking at those, so I showed him the price The SA's today were SOOOO much friendlier, and it was Labor Day weekend! Our SA let me try on quite a few bags (also loved the MC Petit Noe, Damier 30, the Trouville, the MC Priscilla, and the MC Aurelia GM), and was still nice, even after I told her that we weren't going to buy anything today. Maybe one of the SA's read our posts about the Union Square flagship store and decided to improve their attitudes? I can't wait to see what DH gets me for my birthday next saturday!!
