I'm looking for a Damier Ebene bag, because I could take it into the rain. (I live in Holland, it is always raining there) I have a Monogram Speedy 40, I love it, but I don't like the fact that it easily gets dirty. I really love the Speedy for stuff like shopping, so I doubt whether I will purchase a Speedy 35 because I'm a 18 year old boy.

So what do u think. Is a Speedy 35 to feminine/small for a boy?
I'm 5'9 and I'm 154 lbs.

It might be a bit too small. But what matters is that you love the bag you are carrying.

It would be feminine with the speedy 35 in mono but the speedy 35 in damier should be fine. The checkerboard design makes the speedy 35 seem somewhat larger than the mono version.

More important thing is what you need to carry in it, if the 35 might be too small. Your height and weight I think a 35 would look fine, if you were a lot taller or 'fat' then a 40 might look better. I see lots of guys here (Toronto) with Speedys and even the 30 size sometimes.

I do not agree that it's to small! Actually I have several speedies and the 35 is my most used one! It's extremely practical.

I am 6'0 like 184cm and even that I Iike big bags I prefer my 35 over my 40... Good look deciding. Here is a photo for reference...

I'd go for the 40, but you really have to try it on and see how it looks on you.

Super Foto Dennis! Grüße nach Leipzig!

I think the Damier Ebene is very unisex. I think that was why I was drawn to the Verona because the pleats and shape make it look feminine. If I bought a DE Speedy 35, I would definitely add a charm or bandeau. In other words, I think you need to add something to the bag to make it look feminine at that size.

I think 35 will be just fine!! I am 5'10'' and sometimes I think the 35 looks a tad big on me, but im sure thats all in my head!! 35 Damier would be a GREAT choice!!!

For me, the 35 is too small. If they made the 40 in Ebene I'd snap it up right away! You just need to try it on to see if it works for you!
