    Oh Maggie, I heart this statement! :)

    Ah, the handbag. Second only to shoes in fashion statements for women. I grok the yen for the status-bag, even though I don't necessarily share it.

    I hate to say it but my wife has a MK bag and she gets tons of compliments on it. What I find odd is some people can see the MK logo yet they claim they never heard of the brand before. The one nice thing about it is that she was able to get it at a huge discount, which I think is the only way should would buy it.

    so i suggest the little swift.

    she says - no, she wants to spend at least $100 on a bag. so i tell her - the little swift in cork costs more than $100.

    she responds - she wants to spend at least $200 on a bag, at the mall, with a brand name.

    i tell her that the little swift is a brand name bag - it's a tom bihn bag. and if it were sold in the mall, it would cost twice what you pay getting it directly from tom bihn.

    it's designed in the us, and made in the us with materials sourced in the us (except the cork from portugal and the dyneema from japan) by fine folks who are paid fair wages. and tom is a super cool guy! and you know where those other materials come from and you are buying from a company who puts forth the due diligence with regard to the manufacturers who provide those materials.

    she mentions michael kors and something else. she says she likes michael kors because it has the same initials as her.

    i suggest that she change her name to toni braxton or tyra banks to address that oh so important requirement.

    she still wants to go to the mall.

    she mentions again that the louis vuitton isn't comfortable to carry.

    so i say, okay, why don't you carry the cocoa ultrasuede little swift in the mean time, until you find something else that you like.

    i point out the poron foam filled handles and the fact that it can be carried on your shoulder on in your hand.

    i even offer to transfer the contents of her louis vuitton into little swift. everything fits wonderfully!

    so she's off to the mall, carrying the little swift, looking for a michael kors bag or who knows what else.

    i'm not sure what else to do...let's see what happens...
    I know this is an old thread but found it while I was looking for info about the Swifts. Too funny! My DH walked pass me yesterday while I was reading the Blog and saw a picture of a bag. He then commented, "That must be a TB. I recognize the pattern (dyneema). They have their own look, like Louis, Burberry, Coach..."!

    I just realized the disadvantage of my DH recognizing the dyneema is that he's beginning to notice all the dyneema items popping up throughout the house!
