    Default Recent purchase from Coach Factory online sale...

    I bought a bag for my mom from the most recent "Coach Factory" online sale. Although 99% of the items were probably manufactured just for the factory stores, I did see some formerly "full priced" bags for sale too. Whenever I clicked on a particular bag (whether it was a factory issue or a full priced boutique one), it would list the style number with the infamous "F" in front of the numbers. Either way, the bag I purchased had an "F" in front of the style number. The bag arrived and much to my surprise, the price tag and the creed patch were missing the "F"!! I'm assuming this isn't a "factory" issue bag then, nothing wrong with that at all....but why would Coach list everything on that site with the "F" in the style number? Is it because it's technically the "Factory Sale"? I saw a few bags that I know at one time were sold in full-priced Coach boutiques, Nordstrom, Macy's, etc. and even their style numbers had the "F" in front of it. Is this a goof on their behalf?

    hmm...don't know about that. But i have purchased several bags from the Coach factory store that DID NOT have the 'F' on the creed patch. Frankly this is the first time i am hearing of it
    I would be interested to hear what the mods say...

    I have never heard of the "F" but that might be because we don't have it here in Canada? I think it might just be their way of getting their product out to everyone no matter your price point? Which I think is great for everyone.

    I love all their products, whether from the factory store or from a full-priced store. Some people tend to stay away from the "factory bags" because they're believed to be of a lesser quality...sometimes I agree. If I were really picky, I wouldn't have bought the bag that I did, because of that "F", lol!!! I just found it to be a nice surprise when I saw that the bag could've originally been from a boutique line, even though it was being sold as a factory item...I figure some people could be missing out because they see the "F" and stay away, when actually some of the stuff is top quality (but everything is labeled as a factory item). I've told my mom about the supposed "differences" between factory and full-priced items...so now she thinks she's special, lol!! End of rant!
