But seriously, my friends . . . I know. I can see the differences. But both have changeable sizes/shapes, strong handles, a clasp closure and carry a lot! Don't you think that the Hampstead can be seen as a "Damier Neverfull." Obviously dressier than the Mono Neverfull, but Damier pieces often are! And the price difference is not a big deal, really. Just trying to get your attention and get you thinking. But then you already thought of this, right? Remember to love your Louis and love your Life!
