    I love their old bags, the All-Weather-Leather stuff with the tan trimming. They're so classic, and go with just about anything. The new stuff is just awful, though. I've seen all this crap with bumblebees and multicolored handprints and hearts, and while the quality probably isn't too bad, I can't even imagine who would want to spend over $100 on something so infinitely tacky.

    I like their older stuff. The items seemed to be more classy then the items now they put out. They also seem to be repeating themselves with designs. I guess their designers are lacking some real creativity !! I have a piece from the original heart line and now they have another one (where the hearts are more whimsical ). I do agree with most posters that the all weather leather items are GOOD. I bought an all weather leather tote type bag that sat in my closet for a few years. I brought her out when I went to graduate school and she did me well !! I do like the HP bags but the handles are wayyyy to short for me . I won't count them out , but now I prefer Coach a bit more.

    I've come to really appreciate Dooney, especially the little tassel totes. So cute. :)

    I've seen quite a bit of Dooney bashing on here and since I have always loved the brand, I feel the need to speak up for them.

    For some of us, LV bags, and the other upper price bags are out of reach, unless we find one heck of a deal on ebay, and even then, you can't always be sure what you are getting.

    I'm just a schoolteacher and my income lacks a lot to be desired. Dooney does offer some high end, reasonably priced bags that suit my budget. I'll admit, they have had their share of losers lately, but then they also have some really nice bags, too. The same can be said of Coach and many of the other designers.

    When I'm not teaching, I'm in blue jeans, so I need a more causal bag and Dooney offers that. While I love many of the bags I've seen on here, even if I could afford them, they would look ridiculous on me with the casual way I dress.

    And the Dooney bags I have purchased in the past have held up remarkably well, and still look good after several years of wear.

    So, for that I love Dooney! And I can only see the line going forward with a good mix of bags for every age!

    Hey, if you like them and can make them work for you, then go for it! There's nothing wrong with liking Dooney.

    I just really wish they would come out with some new stuff that wasn't so loud (I guess that's the word I was looking for. ). And they have definitely gone horribly wrong with some of their prints lately. I'm not sure what happened. They somehow went from cute to um... not-so-cute. They seem to be toning stuff down for this season though, so hopefully they'll come out with something that I would like again. I really liked the bubble print and the classic signature isn't too bad. Actually, I still have my signature bag that I got several years ago. I still use it, along with my more expensive bags. I honestly don't believe the quality is as bad as some people make it out to be. My bag has taken a beating and it still looks great.

    I love Dooney bags. I own 9 of them and don't feel like parting with any of them. Right now i am carrying my Cesto Drawstring tote bag and it is very durable and carries an amazing amount of stuff without making it look like I am running away from home!! LOL.

    However, i agree with some of the other comments that in recent times, some of the Dooney patterns and color choices are questionable. The range seems geared for tweens and teens, not a more mature crowd. In recent times, I think their Luna bags and all their signature lines are pretty. But i find their duck sport line dull and the multi-color plaid style just hideous.

    I also own many coach's and more recently a Rebecca Minkoff. I don't find Dooney's quality to be bad at all. The only thing is their questionable taste in the past couple of years. Will definitely buy another Dooney if an attractive style in leather comes out!

    The only 2 D&B Bags I have are the Doodle Pocket Sac & the It bag Satchel in White. They are my faves. But I have been on their site and they have nothing to offer for my taste. I just save up and get LV now. Much better. D&B once had cute stuff but not anymore....

    D&B has never been a part of my favs...even in HS when everyone had one just not my style.

    I've always liked dooney bags i've had 3 i had the it bag when it was popular, and the tartan tote (which i sold both of those) now i have the large signature D&B duffle which i love and carry all the time. Some of the patterns can be god awful and some of them can be really cute, i love the signature / it collections
