    I like the signature prints... and the IT prints were okay too. The newer "kiddy" prints really do sell though. But probably to 12 year olds. I've seen so many little girls walking around the mall with their little heart bags and doodle print bags. Sheesh, my mom wouldn't have bought me a $150 purse when I was 12. I think someone was freaking out about the bumble bee print in another thread. They aren't something I would personally like but they are selling like hotcakes on e-bay. People are paying more than retail for them!

    The quality seems pretty good, but I see way too many of Dooney and Bourke carried around in my area (practically all the variations and styles). I think a lot of people like the logo because I hardly ever see the other bags (such as the Alto or the All-Weather Bags) being carried around, even though I think those are better quality. Still, they seem to hold pretty well and eventually get that patina like the LV bags. I kinda wish they had a coated-canvas handbag, though, that is more mature for my tastes (sorry, but even the "IT" bags seem to have a juvenile quality to them).

    D&B has never appealed to me in the least. Personally, they've always come across as cheap. Mainly because of when the white multicolored LV hit the scene, I all of a sudden noticed the D&B version popping up everywhere, giving me the impression that they were knock-offs. I also agree with the poster that said they seem childish. It would definitely be something I would consider buying for children 10 and under, but not neccessarily something you would ever see me wearing.

    I still like some of their stuff. As for the tattoo bags...YUCK!
    I agree that they do seem to be a bit childish, which I guess is still kinda ok for me, it really depends on what I am wearing. I def. wouldn't carry my D&B to a job interview, but for hanging out, it's not bad.

    I'm not a fan. The designs are starting to look a bit tacky.

    in the 90s i thought they were great

    but like coach, dooney isnt at the top anymore. Everyone seems to have one and its not elitist.

    I see it as nothing more than product diversification, that is all. The bumblebees and such are designed for a younger market, and it isn't meant to offend older persons with mature tastes. It doesn't mean the quality has gown downhill either. There are still some bags for the mature market, you only need to look at their classic lines for that. Even Coach has its original vintage styles on its website, next to the trendy items.

    Geez Louise, I thought the Coach and Dooney threads were supposed to attract loyal customers for the bags, not bashers.

    Does it really matter if a brand is elitist or not elitist? Is it that important to impress others? All that matters is whether or not you like it, you're the one choosing your own style after all. I enjoy the soft leather of my Banana Republic satchel and use it more often than my LV Damier.

    I used to love DB but got rid of all of my bags. In fact, I think they just went to Goodwill, I didn't even try and get some money for them.

    For the price of Dooney you could get a way better bag, made of higher quality.
