I thought it would be interesting to have a little survey about bag preferences :smile: Favorite styles, designers, hardware etc. and of course your least favorite too.

Basically you just copy the text and add your own answers. Whatever you can't answer simply leave blank.

I will post the questions without answers first and then my answers.

Hope to see a lot of interesting answers! :biggrin:

I'll play since I have a gap between meetings

What is your....:

Favorite Designer(s) | Least favorite Designer(s)
Most favorite - LV, Bal, Marc Jacobs
Least - Juicy Couture. Too teenagerish for me

Favorite Bag(s) | Least favorite Bag(s)
Fav bags - LV Mahina XS, Bal City
Least fav bag - Coach signatures. Loved them when I was in college but grew out of it

Favorite Material | Least favorite Material
Fav material - leather but I also like coated canvas & nylon bc I live in a city that has a 4-season climate
Least - scratchy materials like wool

Favorite Hardware | Least favorite Hardware
I can go both ways on silver or brass/gold. I like to mix/match with my jewelry

Favorite slouchy bag design | Least favorite slouchy bag design
Fav - LV Mahina (any style). I loooooooove slouchy Mahina leather!
Least - I love the braided look of the LV Artsy when I see it on other people but I thought the handle was really uncomfortable when I took it for a spin

Favorite structured bag design | Least favorite structured bag design
Fav - LV Manhattan PM. Love the buckles and the piping. It screams Marc Jacobs with the brass buckles with the traditional LV mono print. I know MJ style buckles are polarizing but I'm personally in the "love!" camp
Least fav - LV Papillon. I just don't love the mini duffel bag shape but that's personal preference

Favorite type of leather | Least favorite type of leather
Fav - Feeling like a broken record but LV Mahina leather. So soft. So supple. So slouchy.
Least fav - Pleather/faux leathers. I know it's chic to go green but to me they just feel weird to the touch

Favorite bag handles | Least favorite bag handles
I'm an equal opportunity handle-ist

Favorite way to carry a bag (cross body etc.) | least favorite way to carry a bag
Again, I kind of go all over the map. I used to refuse to wear top handle bags but I tend to wear my Bal City with the top handles in the crook of my arm rather than with the shoulder strap. And I love my LV Manhattan which also has a top handle. But I'd say in general I favor crossbody functionality since I live in a big city and am often on the go

Favorite colors | Least favorite colors
I love lots of different colors but I tend to choose cooler tones

Favorite bag size | Least favorite bag size
Depends on what my needs are. If I need to carry my laptop around I'll use a larger bag but if I'm going out with my husband/friends or just running quick errands I prefer smaller bags that fit the essentials

Favorite designer logos | least favorite designer logos
I love LV mono print but I know it's polarizing

Most "tacky" designer bags | Least "tacky" designer bags
I feel like I answered this before but Juicy Couture bags just don't float my boat

Most unique bag | Least unique bag
I think that Milly makes cool, unique bags

Favorite bag shape | Least favorite bag shape
I like bags that have some structure but are still a little slouchy like the Bal City

Most chic designer | Least chic designer
Probably Hermes. If I allowed myself a limitless fashion budget I would love a Kelly. Maybe someday! For now it's more responsible for me to spend that level of dollars on stocks/mutual funds than handbags

Designer with the least quality issues | Designer with the most quality issues
I once had a Vera Bradley cloth bag that started falling apart after I had it for a couple years

Fashion house with highest quality production | Fashion house with least quality production
I've been lucky to not really have quality issues with any "fashion house" purse I've bought. Actually I guess I did just take in a nylon crossbody Prada for repair but I also have had that bag for nearly 5 years before the buckle holding the crossbody strap to the body of the purse wore through (the pin broke)

Style of hardware you prefer (clasps, buckles, locks) | Style of hardware you don't prefer
Love buckles, love turn locks. I don't have any bags that close with just a clasp

Bag that is worth the price | Bag that isn't worth the price
I think LVs are great bc the preloved market is very healthy

Designer that is worth the price | designer that isn't worth the price
I have one Tory Burch bag and I do like it but honestly I don't think I'd buy another one

Favorite type of bag lining | least favorite type of bag lining
I have one of the Neiman Marcus 10th Anniversary Bal City bags and I am in love with the white/black/blue leopard print lining. It makes me smile every time I unzip that purse!

Favorite non designer bag brand | Least favorite non designer bag brand
I have gold clutch from a no-name designer that I've had forever and love to pieces but I honestly couldn't tell you what it's called

Favorite type of zipper | least favorite type of zipper
I prefer metallic zippers to plastic ones

Favorite current bag "trend" (gussets, zippers etc.) | Least favorite current bag "trend"
The Stella McCartney bags that have the chain piping always catch my eye, as well as the zippered bags that go all around the handles

Favorite Pockets on a bag | least favorite pockets on a bag
I love Marc Jacobs buckled pockets. So useful for sticking essentials like your phone, lip gloss, train pass, etc

Favorite closure type(zipper, snap, turn lock, magnet etc.) | Least favorite closure type
Zipper with a buckle on top. Like the LV Mahina XS which I clearly can't stop talking about because I love it so much! Again for city living I like the extra security. A pickpocket would have to work really hard to get in there

Favorite type of print (monogram, patterns, florals etc.) | Least favorite type of print
I tend to not go for printy bags these days other than LV monogram or damier. All the rest of my bags are leather/single color. I would love to someday find a preloved LV leopard Speedy though, I think they are very cool. My least favorite prints are the LV Murakimi cartoon prints, Ikats and multicolor monograms because I think they're too loud

Favorite Designer Bag store | Least favorite designer bag store
I prefer high end department stores like Saks and Neiman Marcus because you can investigate lots of different designers and purse styles under one roof

Designer with best warranty/ service | Designer with worst warranty / service
I hear good things about Coach's warranty/service but only have one Coach and have never needed to take it in for repair. I am kind of disappointed that Prada is going to take so long to repair my nylon crossbody and that for the nature of repair I feel it is on the expensive side

Most practical bag | Least practical bag
My top 3 for practicality - LV Mahina XS (can be worn on the shoulder or crossbody), Bal City (can be worn top handle or on the shoulder), LV pochette (I switch between the vachetta clutch/wristlet strap that came with it and a long crossbody vachetta strap). Basically I love purses that can be worn a variety of ways

Favorite Mini Bag
LV mono pochette

Favorite Medium Bag
Tossup between Bal City and Mahina XS

Favorite Large Bag
Tossup between Marc Jacobs Stella and LV Neverfull GM

OK that was longer than I thought! But still fun to answer a survey & to chat about purses for a little bit ❤

I love all your replies ladies! I just spend a lot of time reading all of them. Very interesting to see the different preferences!

I know the poll is long and detailed and some questions may sound similar...I was trying to not leave anything out, but of course you can skip questions.

firstclasscoach
I though Fossil was a low end designer brand. At least I read so on TPF before and when I read the history about Tom Kartsotis and the brand.

Favorite Designers: Dior, Delvaux, Tod's, Burberry, Marc Jacobs, Le Tanneur, Givenchy (used to be a huge Ferragamo fan, but nothing's impressed me in the last few seasons, though I love my older pieces)

Least Favorite Designers (generally not to my taste, though never say never): Celine, Coach, LV, Gucci

Favorite Bag(s) | Least favorite Bag(s)
I usually buy and keep bags that serve different functions, and I only buy what I love, so I love them all for different reasons.

Favorite Material: Leather | Least favorite Material: I'm open minded as long as it's good quality

Favorite slouchy bag design: I mostly buy structured bags, but I like my MJ Rio

Favorite structured bag design: Delvaux Brilliant, Hermes Kelly, Miss Dior - also quite like Le Tanneur's Nina

Least favorite structured bag design: Heresy to answer :biggrin:

Favorite type of leather: Lambskin | Least favorite type of leather: Everything besides lambskin is pretty much tied, though I'm no longer crazy about patent leather

Favorite way to carry a bag: Shoulder, arm | least favorite way to carry a bag: crossbody

Favorite colors: Red and Black; I also tend to favor darker colors because they're easier to maintain

Favorite bag size: small to medium

Favorite designer logos: Burberry (Haymarket and House Check) is my no logo exception, can't explain why; otherwise, I dislike logo bags

Least favorite designer logos: LV, Coach, Gucci, Fendi, Dior (yes, Dior is one of my favorite designers, but I hate the canvas bags with the D)

Most underrated bag: Tod's | Most overrated bag: Too many to list :smile:

Favorite bag shape: All things structured are lovely

Designer with the least quality issues: Delvaux and Hermes| Designer with the most quality issues: too many these days

Fashion house with highest quality production: | Fashion house with least quality production: if just for bags, see above

Bag that is worth the price | Bag that isn't worth the price
I think all bags are overpriced. You just have to decide what brands/style you're willing to pay overprice for...

Favorite non designer bag brand : Indie designers for the quality; I also really like DKNY bags though I suppose that counts as a contemporary designer.

Favorite current bag "trend" (gussets, zippers etc.): I don't like trends

Favorite Designer Bag store: Dior | Least favorite designer bag store: Chanel and Prada
