    Default Pietro ALessandro or Foley and Corinna Mid City tote bag

    Hi,
    i'm feeling torn between the two and have never seen either in person. Can anyone help decide which is a better purse overall?
    thanks!

    Are we comparing in the Pietro Alessandro Manhattan and the Foley + Corinna Mid City Tote?

    They are very similar. Pietro Alessandro is typically cheaper, but Zappos has some F+C on sale right now so the price is pretty reasonable. I have a F+C Mini City in Fuchsia and I love it! The leather is really thick and it is actually a pretty weighty bag. It has a slightly metallic, polished look and it doesn't scratch easily. Pietro Alessandro doesn't seem quite as heavy, but is still pretty nice. The main difference is that the Pietro Alessandro bag can be worn on the shoulder with both the double handles and the shoulder strap. You can with the F+C, but the double handles are shorter and are more comfortable if carried in your elbow like a satchel (the shoulder strap is perfect though for wearing on the shoulder). The measurements are slightly different, the F+C is a little bit bigger. Also remember that F+C bags do not come with a dust bag. I really wish they would change that, my bag has to share bags with another one.

    i bought my Pietro Alessandro at Verve in NYC. They used to sell F+C, but they told me they dropped the line when they saw how much better the quality was on the Pietro Bags. I love, love, love my Pietro and the leather wears in so beautifully after use. It just gets better and better.

    thank you for your responses - I got the foley mid tote from piperlime at a steal of a deal but was totally unimpressed at the equality of the bag when it arrived so back it goes. i will try pietro alessandro next and hoping to get better results! thank you both.
