Which of these bags would you buy??

They're on sale and I adore them (love a soft, slouchy leather bag), but - which?

I usually much prefer tan leather. However, the black is growing on me (and would stay looking nice longer). Argh!

Can someone decide for me?! grin

Black without a doubt.

PiratePointyTits Thu 09-Mar-17 09:34:23

I'd go for the black but only because I'm a muck magnet and that lovely tan one would get marked within day.

KoalaDownUnder Thu 09-Mar-17 09:35:46

Pirate - my concern exactly! wink

Loyly Thu 09-Mar-17 09:38:22

Black for sure.

Black vote from me.

Ooh, hodd, the voice of dissent! grin

The other thing is, the hardware is pale gold, not silver - I thought silver would look better with black leather. Or not? confused

I only like silver hardware on bags and nearly all bags are gold....

KoalaDownUnder Thu 09-Mar-17 10:08:07

Me too, youngest. I think pale gold looks ok with tan, though. Not sure about black.

Definitely the tan - really classy looking (I want to buy it as well actually) - the squishiness of the leather is lost on black.

AFierceBadRabbit Thu 09-Mar-17 11:29:21

I love the black!

hard to tell exactly from the picture but the tan looks cheap and the flap looks badly proportioned.
A vote for black if I had to but mainly on the basis that the tan will get trashed quicker.

KoalaDownUnder Thu 09-Mar-17 11:42:01

Lady, Hmm. I think (hope) that the flap only looks like that because of the angle of the photo.

QueenMortificado Thu 09-Mar-17 11:42:47

I wouldn't buy either and spend the money on a bench instead wink

The black, definitely!

TSSDNCOP Thu 09-Mar-17 12:10:49

$299 <faints> I could buy a field of goats. And a bench.

In real life, I'd have the tan. Summers a-coming!!!!!!

KoalaDownUnder Thu 09-Mar-17 12:20:57

The $299 is with another 25% off (I've already checked wink). So it's actually < $225, or half the original price.

I mean, it's basically free. grin

(TSS - I'm in Aus, so winter is a-coming!)

Aderyn2016 Thu 09-Mar-17 12:24:33

Black. The tan one looks cheap to me, which for nearly $300 is not what you want.

TSSDNCOP Thu 09-Mar-17 12:27:04

Those are my kind of math * Koala*.

Still tan though, looks great with black in winter.

olderthanyouthink Thu 09-Mar-17 12:28:38

koala my sole mate, yes that basically free!

Ideal world tan. Depends how hard you are on stuff.

MusicToMyEars800 Thu 09-Mar-17 12:31:31

it's a hard one but I do like the tan one.

KoalaDownUnder Thu 09-Mar-17 12:38:01

Depends how hard you are on stuff.

Umm. Pretty hard, tbh. blush

Then again, the tan will look good for both summer and winter, whereas black is a bit 'heavy' with summer clothes. ?

Black. I usually prefer tan too but don't like that particular tan colour, plus the logo is very very obvious on the tan version which I dislike.

BusterGonad Thu 09-Mar-17 12:57:43

Tan, the black is boring imo!
