I went to Banana Republic this weekend and I LOVE their bags! They are trendy, made of Italian leather, and nicely priced compared to the high end designers. I really liked the Tangiers hobo, but didn't buy it, yet. However, I wanted to know if anyone can validate what a salesgirl at BR told me, that all their handbags are made by Coach? Is this true? In that case, the Banana Republic bags are a real catch.
