Ok - I know one is designer and one high street. I've been wanting one of the MJ Too Hot To Handle hobos for a while, partly because I love the buttery leather. But when I was in Fossil the other day theyhad some lovely soft bags in their Preston range.

Has anyone got a Fossil bag and a Marc Jacobs, and can you tell me how they compare? Thanks.

Too hot to handle 100%!!!... It is lovely quality and my bestie bought one lol (little bit jealous but I'll get one soon - wages)
(also she normally never buys designer but fell in love) he is my favourite designer

I have a Marc Jacobs Too Hot To Handle. I use it daily for work. I adore it. The leather is soft and gorgeous. Mine is 8 months old and looks like new.

My mum has a red too hot to handle that she uses daily for work, beautiful bag and it is wearing very well. That's what I'd go for

I have bags from both. Love Fossil bags and they wear well etc, but the MJ leather is definitely better. It softens up really well with age, I've had one bag nearly 3 years and I love it more as it gets more worn in.

Thanks all - esp Pepper with your experience of both. Might get both...!
