Help me decide which bag to get

Decided to treat myself to a handbag in the sale. Narrowed it down to these two but can't decide between them:

AllPizzasGreatAndSmall Thu 29-Dec-16 11:36:27

I love the Scout bag.

GinAndOnIt Thu 29-Dec-16 11:38:48

Oh, tricky. I think I like the second the best though.

CateGory8 Thu 29-Dec-16 11:39:03

My vote is for Scout.

Gingergin Thu 29-Dec-16 11:42:54

The second one, I'm in love! Can't have another new bag though 😩

MistyMinge Thu 29-Dec-16 11:43:06

Am I mad to get Navy? Been wanting a Coach handbag for ages, can't afford full price.

ConstantlyCooking Thu 29-Dec-16 11:43:57

I love the first bag! I wasn't thinking of getting one but now.....

TweedleDee3TweedleDum Thu 29-Dec-16 11:52:47

The second one is my favourite. It's a classic style that will be noticed when you're using it.

EmmaC78 Thu 29-Dec-16 17:10:50

I like them both but prefer the first one slightly more.

Nospringflower Thu 29-Dec-16 18:18:09

I prefer the Scout and niw fancy it myself! Navy does put me off a little though.

Ellapaella Thu 29-Dec-16 18:47:43

Love the first one

WallisFrizz Thu 29-Dec-16 18:50:11

I've just received my Scout Hobo in navy today. I love it! I wanted a Mulberry Freya for Christmas but that was never going to happen so treated myself to the Coach bag in the sales.

Melstarrynight Thu 29-Dec-16 18:57:35

Both lovely but I prefer the first. It's a bit more classic.

CateGory8 Thu 29-Dec-16 19:01:45

I had the Scout Hobo in my basket in silver/saddle brown (tan) but didn't pull the trigger. Its sold out now but I do love the black antique nickel/surplus too. I don't need a new bag but I'm really tempted.

Costacoffeeplease Thu 29-Dec-16 19:07:45

The first one definitely

LadyOfTheCanyon Thu 29-Dec-16 19:13:44

Cheers Ladies! Just bought it in green with my Christmas bonus! Sorry was no help to you OP grin

FedupNagging Thu 29-Dec-16 19:18:20

Love both - am a massive fan of the hobo bag. Sorry, that's no help whatsoever!

Actually, on balance, I'd go for the first one as it's slightly smaller than the second.

And no, you're not mad to go for navy, it's a fab colour.

Rednailsandnaeknickers Thu 29-Dec-16 19:20:32

First one the Scout.

I keep eyeing up the Edie and trying to justify it to myself!

MistyMinge Thu 29-Dec-16 20:35:50

Well I ended up going for number 2. I need something fairly roomy and it's a tad bigger than the scout.

But I'm in a quandary as I've come across it in brown on another site for £25 more. Wondering whether to order it and send the navy back when it arrives. Think brown would go with more. It's a lot of money to pay out in one go and what if there's an issue with returning one..

MinesaPinot Thu 29-Dec-16 22:21:10

I'm no use because I like them both, although on balance prefer the turnlock. I'd have gone for that had I not got my Kate Spade one yesterday smile.

Sorry have just read your last message OP where you say you went for the turnlock in navy. Good choice. Navy's a great colour, particularly in the summer when I think it looks a bit lighter than black.

Just to say that coach are very good with returns and allow you to return free of charge. I bought the first bag in a cream colour and in brown learlier in the year because I couldn't decide which one I wanted and sent one back with no problems.

Has anyone here used Monnier Freres?

MarsBarsAreShrinking Fri 30-Dec-16 09:41:23

Has anyone here used Monnier Freres?

Yes, I have. No problems at all, beautifully packaged and quick delivery. The only thing that annoyed me a little was that the contents and cost of the item were on the delivery note clearly in view on the front of the parcel. What if it had been a present for someone?

BeaLola Fri 30-Dec-16 11:57:45

I bought the scout in oxblood and love it - I was tempted by the navy as well as its hard to get a good navy bag.

Archip17 Fri 30-Dec-16 13:36:36

I ordered this Coach bag in navy from Monnier Freres.

I ordered it on Boxing Day and it was delivered on the 28th. Very impressed with speed of delivery. And the bag is lovely too (and a great reduction in the sale!).
