    Default Marc by Marc Jacobs handbags - Overpriced?

    I have mixed views on Marc by Marc Jacobs handbags. I like the designs but the fabric he uses imo is not worth the mark up price. I love MJ to death < - - very talented. But some of his bags are overpriced.

    Opinions?

    In Order Left to Right:
    Pretty Nylon Shopper ($178)
    Waist Pack ($228)
    Washed Corduroy ($328)
    Patent Hobo ($458)

    Yes, I agree that they are overpriced. I probably wouldn't buy one unless it was on sale.

    Those specific ones are overpriced. But generally, no I don't think so.

    I love the leather on the turnlock line. Its so much softer than the regular MJ line.

    The only one I'd consider paying full price for would be the patent one.
    The others are pretty blah.

    Hehe... I love the turnlock stuff. The leather is so nice and the straps are awesome. I agree with you Jennifer, they are worth what you pay.

    I love the MbMJ collections!:wub: The leather on the Turnlock line is super soft and smooshy, almost like butter! The price is totally worth it! Now I do think that the regular price for the Marc Jacobs collection is a bit overpriced. That is why I wait for sales.

    Right with you on waiting for sales, that's what I'm currently doing

    The one MBMJ bag I thought was a bit much was the large color block doctor q bags, I wanted a large tote for school but I wasn't going to pay almost $600 for a tote that I knew would get a little roughed up.

    I bought that bag thru barneys new york and they have it on sale for $489.
    You might want to check over there.
    I had to return it cuz I felt it was too large for a tote. But i really loved the design.
    But I don't think MBMJ bags are way too overpriced.
    Most of them are leather which is pretty good quality. Think about coach.
    They are fabric-made and it's expensive.

    coach is expensive but it has been around forever and you know they will last and the company stands behind them...

    The MbMJ is a little newer...

    My grandmother has a Coach bag she bought back before I was even born... The thing looks new and she still carries it. She's had to have the zipper and a couple of clasp things replaced, but she's always just taken it in and sent it off for repairs...
