I’ve been really pleased with the recent Cole Haan bags I’ve come across. I started giving Cole Haan bags a bit more of my time once I bought a pair of great CH pumps, with Nike technology. They might just be the most comfortable and fashionable pumps I own. So, as my love for that pair of shoes grew, I thought it was time to start looking a bit more at the bags. I really loved the Cole Haan Prudence Small Satchel but I am on the fence about the larger version.


Cole Haan Prudence Leather Hobo
The Cole Haan Prudence Leather Hobo offers the same great woven leather design as the satchel, but more of it and with a few different colors. I was a huge fan of the grey leather used for the satchel, but I can also equally appreciate the chestnut and zinfandel colors offered for the hobo. The pebbled leather and tassel zipper pull both play off of one another perfectly. I am just wondering if with the hobo, the woven leather is too much. Yet whatever hangup I have, the bag itself is lovely, wearable and absolutely perfect for the cooler fall temperatures. Buy through Saks for $428.

    I got the small tote version of the Prudence in grey. It’s convertible from the square tote shape to triangular (with the corners tucked in). I like the hobo too, but I agree with you Shannon, it might be a bit much in this shape.

    I have the hobo in grey. I didn’t think I would like the large tassel, but it really works well, it is a nice size for what I need, and I don’t find the width of the weave to be too large in proportion to the rest of the bag. Soft, soft, soft! I’m loving it!

    The Prudence Leather Hobo bag is absolutely fabulous! I never, ever comment on anything. However, this purse is so awesome, I had to give it KUDOS!!! The leather is extremely soft, like a newborn’s bottom. It’s very roomy inside, and I must tell you that most hobo bags pucker on the inside at the bottom.

    Not this bag! When I tell you satisfaction guaranteed, it stands up to that! I have had my bag for four months now, and I have not carried anything else. The same bag, everyday, but it is too wonderful to put away! GO AHEAD COKE HAAN!!!!
