Hi, I was thinking about getting a basic black leather bag, and I think this bag may do the job. I have a black coach sig hamptons carry all but I don't like to use it every day, especially during the winter. However, I know the pleated hobo didn't do too well last year, I don't think it was that popular. So my question is, will the hobo look too unstylish ? (i don't think that's a real word) he he.:shrugs:

i saw the bag in person in outlets recently, and my honest opinion is that it looks a little strange and awkward. i know some people really like it and i personally have the wristlet, but the bag looked kind of frumpy.

The aurora outlets had them in black, brown, white leather, as well as silver dusted, and the red/purple suede mosaics last night. They weren't on clearance though...just near the clearance shelves.

I think they're very pretty - but too much bag for an every day bag for me. I have the red/purple suede wristlet that matched and bought my mom the silver dusted one. And THEY are adorable. Didn't see those at my outlet though....not sure if they made it there? I bought both at the boutique.

I can't see your thumbnail, but I think I know the bag you are thinking about, and I really like it! I actually picked up a white/cream one at the outlets for myself when I was Christmas shopping. I'm surprised this bag didn't sell better because I think it's really pretty. I'm excited to wear it with some gold sandals this spring! I actually was really thinking about picking it up last year when it was full price but I held off.
I got it for $159! Woo-hoo!

Thanks for the replies. I'm still undecided, I also like the large carly that just came out. If I do get the hobo, it will have to be one that came from the actual Coach store rather than the factory ones, b/c I heard the leather was inferior at the factory location.

So what do you mean by the leather being inferior at the factory. I thought those bags are the same ones from the Coach store??:shrugs:
