Coach Legacy Pieced Leather Hobo
Whether you’re a fan of the All-American brand Coach, or not, you can’t deny your curiosity towards seeing their latest designs each season. I always look forward to seeing their nice (and not-so-nice) pieces. For the past couple of years, I’ve seen drastic changes done to their brand, basically it seems like most of their goods are less classic in design followed by outrageously expensive price tags. Take a look at one of the many newbie’s by Coach; the Legacy Pieced Leather Flap Hobo is its name. I’ve never been crazy over the brands infamous patchwork bags, and this hobo leaves no exceptions. I’m bothered by the collaboration of suede, leather, haircalf, nubuck, and soft-pebbled leather patches, it just doesn’t appeal to my likings. The only details found on this piece that I’m fond of would be the hobo’s design and that nice shoulder strap, other than that, this bag is way to medieval-themed for my taste. Stiff, heavy, and trendy is what I imagine this Coach bag to be and the outrageously overpriced MSRP of $1,200 is enough to make me turn away with no doubts. A classic leather Coach bag sporting a rich hue is a yes in my book… while this bag is definitely a nay!
