How are you all feeling about the straw satchel or any of the straw bags? 23181 (straw satchel) has a nice slouch. I have a straw wristlet from a previous season. Does anyone have an extra straw bag? Do you love it?

Love the look of straw bags, but whenever I try one on I can't stand the feel of them against my skin.

I think the look is cute, but I have a friend that has a straw wristlet and it's so beat up because the straw breaks (she was rough on it though - so it's not necessarily a reflection on Coach's product). I'd just be too afraid to spend good money and have it fall apart.

I always say wear whatever you like... but in the case of straw bags, I just can't picture them for anyone but elderly ladies, like 70+.

I have two Coach straw totes I like to use during the summer. I think they are perfect with lighter summer clothing and sandals, etc. I haven't found the straw gets damaged easily, but I do store them carefully so the straw doesn't get crushed.

That's what I was considering it for. A summer/summer vacay bag. It has the yellow leather and I thought it would be perfect for that.

I considered it would "age me" but I really think they're cute and I wouldn't carry everyday. We're headed to two beach vacays this summer not including the few day trips we usually make to Tybee Island.

That's the only issue I have with the specific one I'm looking at-price. At $398 (I know the leather drives it up) I could clear something else on my wish list that will be timeless.

I've just posted my opinions and pics about summery straw bags at the link below. I love them and I haven't had any damage with them but I have "shopped around" to get them at good prices - so I can indulge my fancy without guilt!

I have a straw tote that i love! It's not Coach..but it's adorable.... it's not falling apart...no straw is breaking..it's very well made. Oh....and I'm not close to the age of 70 and i rock that straw tote! It's a great summer bag! Wear what you like and enjoy....don't listen to nay sayers! Life is short..... get a straw tote and enjoy it!!!

Well, you learn something new everyday! I had no idea that straw bags were associated with older ladies!

Honestly, we need to get over this age stuff--! Coach's straw bags are stylish and a nice option for summer-for all ages!
