    Default What do you think of the Giant Hobo?

    I've been checking out the Bal styles for potential future purchase, am wondering what you guys think of the Giant Hobo? I'm not totally sure about it as I've never seen it IRL. I really like the Vert Fonce colour and the look of the giant hardware on the hobo.

    - How big is the hobo? Anyone has any modelling pics?
    - Does it fit a lot?
    - Do you prefer the gold or silver hardware on the Vert Fonce?

    Okay, when I was originally looking for a hobo style bag, I went between this one and the Day bag. What I found about this bag is that the zipper is next to impossible to close and open because of the curve. Plus the price is a lot more for not that much bigger of a bag.
    I recommend the Day bag, definitely. It holds a lot and can be used for an everyday bag.

    I prefer the silver because it is more subtle. In fact, I really like the bags with the old hardware. I think it is then the bag that stands out and not the hardware. But that is just me.

    Interesting... I hadn't thought about the zipper. I see what you mean, though. I like the GSH Day on other people, but I don't think I'll suit the Day cause I'm quite short and I think I prefer a more structured shape.

    The thing I like the most about it is the Vert Fonce colour, but I shouldn't settle for a style if I"m not comfortable especially since I can't try it on first.

    I don't care as much for the Hobo as I do the Day! If you decide on a Day I would suggest a bold color. The Day seems to go unnoticed in a neutral color, IMO!

    Actually I really like the Hobo style but what's been holding me back is I'm not sure I can pull off the GH! Vert Fonce is AMAZING but if you aren't sure about the style I'd pass and wait for the perfect VF. I have a Day and love it! IMO they are best after they are broken in so I prefer pre-owned ones. The Day is a lot longer than the Hobo and less dressy. I am 5'3 and I think the Day looks fine on me.

    I def. like the day better. The hobo isn't as right feeling for me, if you get one try getting it in a bolder color perhaps?

    I love the hobo and I don't have diffculty closing the zippers now that's another issue with my day bag the zipper doesn't close easily. I think that is a quality control issue not much to do with the structure of the bag.

    I had vert fonce witg GGH and loved the warm gold against the warmness of the green color. I would snap up a GGH hobo as they will not make hobos with GGH anymore!

    MrsShoeGal, you said "had". Don't you have the VF hobo anymore? I was wondering if you have any modelling pics you could post. I'm not sure I can pull off the GGH though cause I'm more of a silver type of person and gold would be too much bling for me, I think.

    LOL! I can't cause it's my Christmas present! And it hasn't arrived yet. Hmmm. I don't think I can wait for Christmas though. I've got a few outings in the next few weeks that I would want to use it.
