    Problem ?? Hmmm - well -perhaps room for one more color??

      Are they comfortable? Do they come in smaller sizes?
      It would be great for the people who wanted more padding on their DLBC's handles.
      They are very comfy
      Etsy has many stores which make these and some embroider monograms etc
      Re sizes. I don't know. If you measure the handle and communicate w the shop owner - many times these are made to order

        Many years ago, there was a Compuserve fiber forum with a thread devoted exclusively to comments from spouses/partners. Hysterical.

          I gather my sarcasm was too subtle... LOVE the photo in the @Moose thread.

            @Orangeboys, I don't think you (or the other posters) were being too subtle about your reactions (i.e. no "problem") -- I just wanted an opportunity to post back a reference to @Moose's thread about a similar "problem" so you could enjoy her photos -- and the names of all the early respondents got included, whether or the sarcasm was meant to be subtle or overt.

                I have been meaning to tell how inspiring your PosT was of All the fabric styles / colors in one pouch
                To see them all at once was really exciting
                I know many of us smiled even afterward thinking of that shot

                  TB bags are the only way to transform dreary hotel rooms into works of art.

                    Hey here comes the tourist !!
                    We were going to go in march but my daughter is expecting in march so we are now trying to decide may vs oct
                    My eldest told me to leave my bold colored shoes at home and add color w scarves
                    Colorful accessories is what makes fashion. If everyone was wearing all black, all the time, ready to wear designers would go bankrupt.

                    I used to stick with black shoes, they go with everything and they slim out the foot lines but... last year I found very comfortable silver (the shade is more like TB matter silver zipper pull than glittery evening jewellery tone) shoes and have been wearing them, all the time, since then.

                    They are very soft leather, I don't like to buy anything in leather but I needed a waterproof shoe to replace the canvas ones I wear in good weather.

                    I visited France with them and there was no problem, your silhouette (petite and stylish) is very European, you will blend perfectly.


                    Your shoe wardrobe need to be dictated by the weather which is determined by the countries you are visiting and the season.

                    I put countries first, because, in southern Europe the seasons are much milder than in the north. (Some would say, duuuh)

                    There is also the influence of the Jet Stream which makes coastal Europe much milder than continental Europe.

                    So you would pack a different wardrobe if you were to visit Lisbon, Madrid and Rome or Barcelona, Nice and Milan versus London, Paris, Berlin or Bruxelles, Amsterdam, Oslo.

                    There are many Europeans in this forum and they will tell you what the weather is usually like for each season in their region.

                    A couple of weeks before leaving, when you start practice packing, ask for the weather trend in the regions you plan to visit to members of this forum and check the National Weather Service, BBC world weather...


                    Sometimes there are heat waves in october and cold spells in may so you want to be prepared.

                      And enjoy the photos I did!! I'm not brave enough to photograph all my bags together, because then someone might figure out what a serious problem I DO have. :-) [email protected]!

                        I took a picture a few (or 5) orders ago. No more family pictures for me either!

                              Oh gosh, I hadn't noticed. Thanks for pointing that out. Is that a shih-tzu? (Looks like my cousin's!)

                                I was thinking the same thing! My Gracie is a shih tzu.
