Which of these bags do you like best?
Evidently the Radley one is going to come in cocoa too- a brown- which is what I'd go for.

I think in general Radley are better quality and I don't like the 'gold' on the Fossil one- but do like the colour and style.

Looking for a grab bag with an optional across body strap.

fossil

radley

I prefer the first Radley, though I do quite like the second one in dark brown, but not really any of the other colours.

The dogs always come off- they are just on a tag.

Can we agree on which Radley- are we all agreed on the Border which is this if the link works

I quite like this too

I prefer the Radley, it looks timeless and classic, understated but beautiful. (Poetic). Though I hate the sodding dog, does the dog come off?

The Fossil, looks a bit cheap and nasty, a tad £15 off the market, sorry.

I definitely prefer the Fossil, the Radley looks a bit old fashioned to me.

I've got both Fossil and Radley bags and my Fossil is in better shape than my Radley as it just seems to get better with age, whereas the Radley doesn't look as nice as it's getting older.

I like the Radley, I prefer the shape of it.

missbopeep Mon 22-Jul-13 20:57:48

yes Ilove.... have just been having another 'play' with the Border bag and convincing myself it's quite nice. I have to say I prefer a zip to a magnetic fastening so that could be the decider.

Thanks karma for the input on Fossil.

p.s. it is very funny that we like all the same bags grin

I had a Fossil bag and it did fade quite badly, dont know how good quality the Radley one is in comparison

I have bags from both Radley and Fossil - have to say that the colour of the leather on the handles of the Fossil wore off very quickly and the zip broke (although I fixed it, but I shouldn't have had to).

The Radley is very well made and strong, so I would go for that brand purely on quality grounds.

missbopeep Mon 22-Jul-13 20:13:56

That's so funny- we must be clones! I HAD that bag and sold it on ebay about a year ago. I quite liked it but it was heavy even when empty and I wasn't sure on the gold- looked slightly blingy.

although it is smaller and more expensive!

its really hard to tell from the pictures, much better to see them in real life.

I quite like this too

missbopeep Mon 22-Jul-13 19:54:52

Thanks- agree about the pocket at the back!

They are both very different bags ( the Radleys- pleas see link of the Border bag too.)

The Border bag is quite stiff whereas the other one is squashy- and has more space.

pondering over the colour- don't like the 1st one in hazel- looks slightly too yellowy but not bad in the Border.

Dithering over brown....

oh ok erm I like the fact there are 2 components inside & an inside zipped pocket (to keep my make up safe from my little madam). I noticed there a pocket at the back of the bag (unzipped) but would be very useful to keep travel card - very handy for us londoners ;)

missbopeep Mon 22-Jul-13 19:30:41

That's so funny- I have that bag in the house ordered from J Lewis and unsure about it.

The other Radley one is bigger and softer but wondered if it was a bit 'dated' in style.

Keep the opinions coming.

they have it in a hazel colour

www.radley.co.uk/border-12977 - I like the look of this one better than the two you have shown

missbopeep Mon 22-Jul-13 19:15:26

Please say why smile

painforlife Mon 22-Jul-13 19:14:12

I have to say I prefer the radley.
