    "they of the fancy purses"? what's with the grammar?



  4. 4

    umm, better they're laying off in corporate than cutting the super low-paying jobs in their stores and outlets.



  5. 5

    High-end items will be hit the hardest. Hope they can survive.

    Coach is not fancy… It's on the same scale of Dooney & Bourke… way below luxury goods.

    Luxury = gucci, fendi, versace, hermes, dior, dolce&gabbana…

    How can you not know this perez? Where is your fashionista skill?

    I wouldn't say Coach is "fancy"… but they are the "obtainable luxury" of the common folk (like me). I got a $400 Coach purse for $97 the other week, that's hardly a fancy price tag.

    ugh Coach. it's the "luxury" brand for 15 year olds who buy coin purses for a status symbol in their middle america high school

    Re: Amber! – Well Amber arent u a lucky girl. Not everyones lucky enough to get $400 purses on sale for less than $100. Coach is around the same level as JUICY, which is ATTAINABLE LUXURY

    My stupid coach comment ended up on the Adnan post. WTF? And like I said there, Coach isn't ALL that. Balenciaga would be fancy.



  11. 11

    those purses are not fancy.



  12. 12

    Re: aDIORable – That's the best description of Coach. When I was 16 I thought I was hot shit for having a Coach bag. Now……years later….those bags sit in the closet haha

    Coach is cheap crap. Totally not worth the hype.



  15. 15

    Coach should bring their classic bags back! I wouldn't carry one of their current models if they gave them out FREE.

    By the time Obama is done there will be nothing left to trickle down to the workers of these establishments and much less tax money to give to folks to trickle up. Did he take Econ 101 in college?

    Re: STFUP
    nice, do you realize how many jobs the company provides??? do your research!!! and enjoy your effing walmart bag!



  18. 18

    GOOD. Fuck coachhhh and all that shit.



  19. 19

    Good riddens to them - 1/2 the purses out there are fake and gals strut there coachies around like the only identity they have is the purse - I could care less about this line anymore.



  20. 20

    wtf i love coach



  21. 21

    I used to buy Coach till I found out all their shit is made in China! I'll take Italian over Chinese/American.



  22. 22

    Almost all their products are made in China…go ahead and ask the salespeople and watch them stammer to explain why a $700 purse is made in China. Save yourselves the $390 dollars and pick up something bougie at Target at least they give money back to charity.

    Here's the thing. Coach bags are affordable for leather. People that are rocking the Louis Vuitton canvas are rocking CANVAS coated in plastic. The quality of coach is good I think for the price. I personally am into Linea Pelle and lovcat! Also I like Botkier and Lockheart! But I do love Target. I can always find something there that I like and it stops me from spending more than I should.

    Think about that luxury good invested in your retirement and how much it would be by the time you retire. That is the real price of that purse. The opportunity cost of that $2,000 handbag is your retirement. It may sound far away, but its not!



  24. 24

    ugly product. Only bought for the name by people who need to be noticed.



  25. 25

    I am sorry but Coach is definitely not luxury. In the world of fashion you have Couture, bridge lines, better garments, moderate lines, and budget lines. Budget lines being purses from target or something like that… moderate being Nine West purses or Guess…. and Better Garments being Coach… just so ya know.. haha



  26. 26

    i love coach :)



  27. 27

    you guys are stupid. you just can't afford the expensive bags from coach. im sure 95 percent of you haven't been to one of their flagships stores which has everything. you keep talking about mini skinnys and all that shit. louis has it too. that mini skinny that everyone and their mother has for 150.00 that goes up 15.00 every year. oh and ps news flash everything is made in china. and for alllll of you that don't know. louis vuitton bags are made in mexico. i promise.

    ps. i love how obama came into this.



  28. 28

    Since about 60% of corporate staff is useless, I don't think this is so terrible.



  29. 29

    It's not about being fancy, the whole point of the store is to have affordable handbags for people who can't afford LV and yeah they are made in china, so what. Most of the things in your house are probably made in china
