Feel MK is everywhere at the moment, looking for a less popular brand, like the Coach bags, would you suggest any other brands around the same pricing?

Coach are lovely. Agree, Furla make some very nice ones too.

Russell and Bromley also worth a look.

I have rediscovered Radley actually, if you ignore the stupid dog and weird loud prints.

There are some lovely bags there.

This is nice

I dont get the fuss over MK.

Coach or Fossil, fossjl is amazing brand and great watches too

Russell and Bromley or Kurt Geiger

I have a coach bag that has been going strong for 10 years plus. It's my every day bag. So I'd recommend that.

Coach far nicer than MK IMO
However check out Fossil too which is much cheaper

MK bags are the only ones that make me inwardly cringe. No idea why they just do.

Re MK, I know, I see ladies wearing the bag with a tracksuit and I absolutely cringe, Coach it is then I think. Thanks for all your suggestions!

Coach, no question.

Justoneme Mon 30-Oct-17 20:22:18

Coach all the way; they are classic. MK are for wannabes.

Aderyn17 Mon 30-Oct-17 20:26:13

Coach, without doubt. The only fossil bag I had, the leather started peeling off the straps so I wasn't overly impressed.
MK have some lovely designs but I think Coach are beautifully made for the money and are more classic imo.

Coach for sure. Or a pre-loved Mulberry for not much more. There are some great Facebook groups for Mulberry and Coach bags, too.

Michael Kors are hideous. He sold out. Anything literally anything but Michael Kors. In addition to Coach there is also Marc Jacobs and See by Chloe around the same price point.

Coach, Marc Jacobs, Kate Spade or Russell and Bromley are all my go-to's. And Longchamp for the 'sling it all in and carry the kitchen sink' type bags.

I work in London and Michael Kors and the Louis Vuitton Neverfull (either legit or knocked off) are very popular amongst the Young Things (or that's certainly the case in my firm).

Do Coach have good sales?

Aderyn17 Tue 31-Oct-17 10:58:55

Coach have fab sales. Def worth holding out for

PNGirl Tue 31-Oct-17 11:00:01

My coach is beautiful. I'm using it today. Also indestructible.

I also like my Fossil bags.

merrygoround51 Tue 31-Oct-17 11:01:25

Coach. MK have become quite 'common' whereas Coach are pretty classic

PricillaQueenOfTheDesert Tue 31-Oct-17 11:06:02

I love my Fossil for everyday use, have a Radley too, that’s nice for everyday use as it’s fairly solid and cleans beautifully.

MK is the new Juicy Couture.

Coach is fantastic quality - I have 3 and love them all, the first still going strong many years after purchase and a classic design too.

Are you anywhere near Bicester? there is a huge coach shop there. Last year I went around black friday (only a couple of weeks away) and got 25% an already reduced bag.
Although not the same colours, but the same bag was on their website for nearly £500 and i got it for £125. It's used every day and is lasting really well
