Tory Burch Tote vs. Steve Madden Bag
As I stumbled upon Steve Maddens’ Perforated Patent Tote, the name Tory Burch jumped into my head. Why, you might ask? Well, take a look for yourself. Both bags share obvious similarities, such as, the same bag shape, both bags also measure in at 17�?W x 16�? H. You can find long straps attached to the body of the totes by a round gold rivet insertion. You can also find a magnetic snap closure inside both bags for security purposes. Both bear perforated embellishment on its front side; Burch’s tote sports its recognizable reflecting T’s (Burch’s signature logo), while Maddens tote is perforated with some type of symbol I can’t really make out. Of course the most obvious comparison between Burch’s and Madden’s creations would have to be the high-shine patent leather body. So what differences do these two totes have? Burch’s tote comes in a variety of hues, including new color combinations, such as Turquoise on Yellow or Tangerine on White, which will be available soon as they are part of the Burch’s Spring 2008 collection. While, Madden’s tote is adorned with a detachable charm piece. You can obtain Madden’s BJENN bag for $38 through Steve Madden (dot com) or get the original Tory Burch tote via Nordstrom (dot com) for $325.
