Has anyone got the camel? originally wanted the tan but think they have changed the colours.

Now I actually have the funds I can't decide between the two, help s&b ladies.

I have the camel, it's a lovely colour, goes with nearly every colour outfit.

The Camel is a lovely colour, I am really pleased with mine.

I have camel and it does go with everything I own, but this time of year i'd probably pick brown.... to match my boots smile

yes I have the flash code stashed in my inbox.

yes that's the problem madamecholet it's winter which got me thinking that i should go for the brown..... but I have brown bags....

I have waited ages for this bag and ladies it does have to be the lucia so it may have to be camel then.

who said buy bothgrin

I am tempted too but have black boots this season so was considering the navy or camel! Decisions, decisions!!!

one camel on it's way, very excited.

thanks for posting this, i excitedly had my birthday money at the ready (having asked family to club together so i could justify buying another handbag) a few weeks ago only to find that they dont do the tan lucia any more <sob>

just how light is the camel? i dont have any camel boots/shoes if that matters, tho lots of dark brown (and dark brown bags to go with too). but i think i prefer the camel to the brown, or are they likely to stock the tan again do you think?

I'm not altogether delighted by the flash 'sale 'today having paid full price for a brown Lucia just a few weeks ago!!

I found it hard to choose - the camel looks a lovely colour - but, after discussing it with the very nice woman who often answers the phone at P and M (and I think is one of their managers), decided the dark brown was a more realistic choice for someone like me who tends to give a bag pretty hard use and doesn't want to be faffed to change bags frequently. For someone with a different lifestyle the camel would probably be fine.

PS On the tan, would have had that on colour grounds alone, but the P and M woman told me that the tan was not such a soft leather as the other colours - don't know if they'll do it again. Would also have loved a grey ...

Maybe no-one else thinks like this but I have blonde hair and so go for tan or camel bags, while my sister has dark brown hair and wears dark brown or cherry bags. Seems logical to me - I do like dark bags but wouldn't buy one! Black is ok for either of us weirdoes

snowballinashoebox Fri 07-Oct-11 17:49:16

I am a bit worried about camel being as forgiving to all the disasters which happen in my average day too so purchased the leather protector stuff at same time.
shelley I spent ages looking at them both and the brown just didn't speak to me the same. This is money from a really nasty accident so I am thinking sod the practicality.
polyyou have made me feel better about the tan thanks.

shelley72 Fri 07-Oct-11 18:09:30

yes my bags too have a hard life - chucked in car, on floor, smeared with banana etc etc - so i have never bought a really expensive bag before. i much prefer the camel to any of the other colours (though do agree poly a grey would be lovely). wonder how well i could look after it. suppose i could order and see how light it is ..

madammecholet Fri 07-Oct-11 22:14:23

I am properly abusive to bags and my camel is fine, I do use collonil on it now and again if the kids have smeared finger marks and it's been fine tbh.... I don't wear my wax jacket with it though to prevent dye transfer, but other than that I don't worry about it.. smile

I think the camel colour is a great all year round bag - but would need care and treating with leather cream regularly. The brown is a lovely dark colour which would stand abuse rougher treatment better but probably only be used in Autumn and Winter -imo smile

My bag has arrived and it's beautiful and very, very soft and very light, can of collonil at the ready!

P&M gift wrapped it in beautiful paper and bow, with a card and sent it by express option even though I paid for the slow.

What a lovely company to deal with.

catswearnoknickers Tue 11-Oct-11 17:45:11
