Hi! I am looking for a great black satchel and find myself torn between these three:

I would greatly appreciate and welcome all opinions on these bags so I can make a good choice :smile:

BTW, I'm not a fan of the Givinchy Antognia but open to other suggestions! Thanks SO MUCH!

It's a tough choice, they are all nice bags. I recently bought the Prada bowler in black. I love the slight sheen of the saffiano leather, it looks so rich. I wasn't as impressed with the St. Laurent when I saw it IRL, it's nice but kind of blah. The Tods is lovely, but has more of a casual feel than the Prada or St. Laurent. I think it would work with either a suit or jeans.

I would go for the Prada. It's feminine, classy, elegant but casual...the Prada gets my vote.
Have you considered the Loewe Amazona? They come in leather and suede. The leather is soft, buttery, gorgeous. They are made in Spain, I think. My coworker has one and I can't stop touching it and smelling it! :biggrin:
Good luck in making a choice!

Prada! The Tod's looks too slouch IMO and the Saint Laurent looks a little too structured. Prada has the Goldielocks status. :biggrin:

I like the Tods bag and they have great quality. Prada is beautiful but it seems some people have complained about the quality in the newer bags.

What about Saint Laurent Sac De Jour (my dream bag now)? I like Tod's D bags but I think they look much better in lighter colors.

My vote is for the Prada, I used to own this exact style and it is perfect for almost every occasion. The strap is detachable too so you can make it more formal (if you wish) with just the carry handles when needed. My only criticism and the reason I sold it is that it is a little on the small side, but then it depends how much you carry.

Prada. I'm not a fan of saffiano leather but this looks bag looks so chic. I like the Tod's as well; I think it's casual chic.

I like the Tod's bag the best. Also seconding the suggestion for the Givenchy Lucrezia.

I would go for the SL 6 duffle. I just bought the SL 12 duffel at a great price and im very happy I took the plunge. I must admit I almost didnt get the bag based on reviews from this site but im so happy I went for it. The bag can be dressed up, down or worn crossbody and just works with everything in my opinion. Plus its a timeless bag so you can justify the cost because you will get years of use out of it.

Tods. I like the style of the Prada but I worry about the quality. Personally I don't love the leather on the SL.
