Fashionista's sound in.... which manufacturer makes the 'best' bag

Postby FastSRT8 » Sun Sep 01, 2013 3:35 pm

Looking for a new leather briefcase (not the nasty attache type) and am now down to two luxury brands....

Ferragamo or Louis Vuitton

The bags are for work... trying to keep it as 'small' as possible and yet be functional. Used with suits.

Can't load up the LV photo but it's this one...

So which one is 'best'?

I would flat out go with Ferragamo. I typically would LV but I saw a couple of video on YouTube and starting thinking that it's too flashy and that the quality has gone down compared to its price. Plus that Ferragamo looks a lot more sleek then the epi print briefcase.

I think big LV pieces are gaudy. With that said I have a LV Keepall weekender...

Yes, I bought it and love it. The quality is definitely there. The style is spot on for me.

I agree with the notion that Louis is a bit pricey, even for luxury. I'm happy with Ferragamo or Prada.
