Hi dears!

This is my first time contemplating on getting a Tod's handbag, I went to the boutique and the leathers are of really good quality (disappointed in quality of other brands increasingly)...

My question is...I liked the new military bag (in blue), the D-bag shopper and also the more classic (?) sella bowler bag.

For my first Tod's bag, which would you recommend? Is the sella bag still a classic you think?

I plan to use it sometimes at work and sometimes just shopping maybe (I don't need a huge bag as I don't carry much)- I have other bags like Chanel flaps, Ferragamo, Miu Miu and Prada mostly.

Thanks so much! :smile:

minami - sorry it took so long for an opinion. If I were to pick, it would be the D-Bag shopper, but that is because "I" like it best of the choices. I also have one of the earlier versions with the handles as part of the bag and not attached separately with hardware. Separately attached handles is a good idea, especially if/when you need to replace them.

My recommendation would be to take what you would normally carry and try them in each bag. As long as you feel comfortable with the bag that you like best, you will have made the best choice.

Classic wise D-bag wins hands down imo. Sella has a classic shape for sure but its rather a new addition to the collection compared to the D-shopper.
