    Default Poll: To buy or not to buy?

    I love Wine. It's an absolutely incomparable color, second to none. It is thick, lush, and deeply saturated leather that is amazing to touch. I own a Wine Matinee and at one point I owned a Wine MAM which I no longer have.

    I have regretted not keeping the MAM and I really really really want another. However, they are no longer in production. In order to buy one, it would be a special cut which translated basically means retail + the additional costs which comes out to $700.

    Mindful of the fact that Wine is a coveted color, extremely hard to find, and it is the best leather I have ever seen or felt, I am not sure if I can stomach forking over that kind of dough....BUT..I WANT IT!

    What do you guys think? Would you pay that price for a bag you absolutely loved and lusted after? Please take my poll

    Here are some sample pics of the Wine from Ebay:


    (That's not my listing but oddly enough, I think that's one of the same MAMs I used to have! It looks exactly the same, right down to the distressed leather on the front, smoother sides, and slightly varied tone. )

    I would pay full retail for a bag I loved...like a speedy 30.

    I say, if you really really want it...I'd go for it...but $700 is A LOT for an RM bag.

    Well, I suppose so. Im sure one will pop up eventually..but I'm not sure if I want to pay $500-$600 for a used one, kwim?? Wine MAMs tend to go fast, much more so than the MABs, and as well, they go for top dollar.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. Question is...do you want to spend $700 on a MAM? And if you DO get it, will you be upset you spent that much?

    If you really love it, then it's worth the extra money. If you don't need it immediately, then keep checking ebay for a good deal.

    The only thing is, you had one before and you got rid of it. Was it because you didn't use it much?

    IMO, $700 is a lot to spend on a MAM. But that's just my opinion.

    Here's my thought on the issue. You already have the Wine Matinee. You sold the MAM for whatever reason, but you sold it. So that should tell you something. If you have $700 to blow, get something different, something you don't already have.

    Maevey does make an excellent point.. you sold it for a reason, right?

    However if you do really-really regret it, then totally, you should go for it.. although I would stalk ebay for a while first Did you see that one jess found?

    Think about why you sold it before.

    If you REALLY want it and you do regret selling it then I say go for it! If there was a good reason for selling it then maybe you should pass.

    What is your heart telling you to do? If you do get it will you end up selling it after a few months?

    I am sorry, I don't think I added much.
