I don't know if any of you know about Tano but their bag is just faboulous! I just recieved my order of the Gerard in bluemarine and the blue just pops, the leather is distressed, and soft! Here is a pic for now on a different website. It is actually more blue than purple. It looks really similar to the Balenciaga hobo but I think this is a great alternative. It is only $169 at musthavebag.com. The inside is orange and has a very unique cell pocket. I will post pics tomorrow! I was just so shocked at how great the bag was I would like to share http://shop.store.yahoo.com/koodekirboston/gecrto.html (color) http://www.musthavebag.com/Details.cfm?ProdID=91&category=0 (style from site I bought it from) I plan on getting a Tano recliner bag too!
