    I disagree about Michael Kors handbags. They have copied Coach, Louis Vuitton and now Coco Chanel, in style. They might have some expensive bags, but most are under $300, whereas Coach bags are mostly over $300.

  2. LadyP says:

    Ann,I have to agree 100% with your comment.

  3. Cess says:

    Totally agree … we’re is LV and Coach …definitely MK doesn’t go on this list!!! ☺️

  4. Jen says:

    Agree with Ann as well. Coach is way above Michael Kors.

  5. Jellybean says:

    I agree about coach better than mk. But where would you place Brahmin handbags? They seen cute and croc is nice. I don’t have one but seen them at Macy’s and other stores. And what’s your thoughts if Radley London?

  6. Adele says:

    Ridiculous – Top 3
    1) Hermes
    2) chanel
    3) Louis Vitton
    Then there’s Burberry, Loewe, Radley, Brahmin, Gucci, D&G, Chloe to name a few

    You’ll never find the above in TKMaxx
    Unlike Coach …. & way down at the bottom Micheal Korrs

    I used to love Dooney bags. The all weather bags in the 90’s lasted forever. I still have 4 of them. Dooney bags now are the same price but the quality is nowhere near as good. Now I mostly buy Michael Kors or Kate Spade. Some of the others might be better but I’ve liked some of their the Kate Spade kitty bag.. adorable. I think designer bags are better constructed in general but paying thousands for a bag is just dumb. The quality isn’t any better. You’re just paying for the name to try to impress people. The Birkin bag? Get real. And people are waiting in line to throw away their money on that thing.

    Great List of The handbags. I am surprised that Coach didn’t make it on the list. I have to disagree with the comments regarding Michael Kors Bags. He makes Beautiful Bags and has gained an awesome loyal Clientele. I agree with the Ladies to why Coach isn’t on list or Burberry and Dooney.
