I browsed through LV Catalogue today and they now have a men's bag that is 100% copy cat of Paris Bombay except the handle. Have anyone seen this? They priced the bag at £2,250 and for what it's worth, I'd rather get the real paris Bombay for £3,000 :smile:

Which bag? I looked through the catalog and did not see it.

It's a common desig , I would't worry too much. May of the H designs are simple, functional and traditional so you will see similar bags may places. :yes:

Is there? I went to the LV forum and there's no mention about this bag.

I think he's talking about the doctor's bag from the Naxos collection. It has batwings like the Paris-Bombay.

^^ Have not seen it in IRL but I happened to see it in the Selfridges Catalogue and from a front angle it looks dead similar to Paris Bombay. From LV Catalogue website it looks similar but slightly different. But I must say LV leather bags are sooo expensive these days almost the same price than Hermes. No wonder Hermes has to increase their price to affirm their non-affordability status?

The Naxos Doctor Bag: It is 60cm wide, making it one HUGE doctor's bag. I think it is more of a travel bag and feels more like a Keepall than the Paris-Bombay. The leather is also very soft, not the structured leather that is used for the Paris-Bombay.

Is this the bag you were referring to?

I can't seem to copy the pic, but here is a link:

I know. Bad bad name.

And $3870? Puh-leez. :tdown:

I like it - it's a classic doctor's bag shape. I'd hardly call it a copy of the Paris Bombay.
