Hello all,

The large horsebit hobo is the last bag that I would love to get to add to my little collection. I had just purchased a Balenciaga City in Feb and so I feel like I'm going out of control if I purchase another purse so soon. I called the Gucci outlet at the Desert Hills outlet and they only have a few left. Since the search feature is down, I went through past pages to see if I can find anyone modeling the bag. I'm 5'0" and it might (?) be big on me? Not sure. Also, does it sag alot and is it hard to find stuff inside?

Any help will do..Thanks so much!

I'm 5'2" (and a half!), have the large horsebit hobo in black leather, and I LOVE it. It is, indeed, huge, but I adore big bags, so I don't mind the size. You are tiny, and if larger bags bother you, you probably won't like it. While scrolling through threads this past weekend, I found some pics (I think of the signature style). I'll see if I can find them again, and post the link.

Get it! Get it (if not the large, then the medium)! It's a gorgeous bag!

I was just having that conversation with another TPFer! I just bought my bag last weekend, so I'm not really sure. It seems like it will wear well, but I don't know. The leather is soft, but it doesn't feel delicate/fragile. No scratches after a week, so maybe that's a good sign?

I absolutely love my medium one. I use it everyday. It is a big bag for me, but I am getting used to it. The leather is wonderful and it slouches quite a bit. I think if you do not get the bag, you will regret it. Either size...but I prefer the medium. The large seems way too big. I guess it is all personal preference in the end though.

I have a medium on and it fits A LOT. I fit the same thing in it that I do in my LV Speedy 30. Mine is black leather and I've carried it around and don't feel the need to constantly baby it. I think the leather really holds up well.

i also just bought this bag and am a little worried about the durability (i posted a thread but no one has responded yet?) but i am loving the style! the large is big but because the leather is so soft it doesn't feel bulky and i love the slouchy look. i'm not finding it too hard to find things because the opening is quite wide so it's easy to see what's inside if that makes any sense...? and the pocket is also huge so i am keeping my phone, wallet and keys there for quick and easy access. with all these sales i really didn't want to buy get another bag either but was worried i would miss my chance since there aren't many left. anyway i hope that helps!

i'm 5 feet, and have the large black hobo in python. it is perfect. very slouchy, beautiful, big but not overwhelming, great for travel...

i used to have the medium size, but no longer do. that was a great everyday bag as well...
 
Hi Everyone,

I'm also thinking of getting the large horsebit hobo which is $1019 on presale. I was looking on ebay though and it seems like a lot of sellers are selling these for around $500. Do you guys think they are fake?

Also, I cant decide which one to go for- its between the one with the logos embossed all over it (but I'm a little overwhelmed by logos at times and I havent seen this one in person) or the plain leather one or the canvas one with the logos (currently on the gucci site). Please help me decide! If it helps, I'm about 5'3" and 26.
