Everyone on the PurseBlog sees a ton of bags every day, so when one sticks with you for a little while, that’s always something to pay attention to. I first spotted The Row Duplex Hobo when scouting out which Resort 2016 bags the Internet’s big retailers already have on offer, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since.

I’m not the only person who took particular note of this bag at the time; several of you mentioned your interest in it in that post’s comments, and more of you clicked over to see its full details than clicked any link in the post. (Watching you guys vote with your clicks is fascinating.) It’s somewhat rare that we get that kind of consensus on a bag made by a relatively small brand like The Row, so it seemed like the Duplex Hobo was worth a closer look.

The bag, like most of The Row’s best pieces, has a rather straightforward appeal: it’s simple and soft, and the leather looks thick, like the kind that gets better and more interesting as you use and break in a new bag. Not that this bag looks like it would need much breaking in, of course.

With nothing but a removable tassel to complicate things, the sort of wide, flat straps that look like they’d sit comfortably on the shoulder and a price point well within the bounds of what luxury customers are willing to pay for a day bag, there’s literally nothing here that I can find to complain about. Except that I don’t already have one in my closet, of course. (If you like things more complicated and expensive, there’s a fully beaded version that rings up at just less than $10,000.)

    Why is this bag $2000? It’s way too simple to cost that much.

  • Sara

    Yes it is plain. Yes it is over priced but….I have this strange desire to hug and caress the beige one. The leather looks super luscious and comforting. Weird..

  • Ginger

    I have to say, I bought one of their bags (on sale last year) and after carrying it non stop I can honestly say I would pay full price for one of their bags without hesitation. The quality is remarkable, they’re quietly chic, and wonderfully organized… It’s not like a Celine Luggage (which I have and paid FULL price for, only to watch the structure break down after a few months of daily wear).

    • Smithy

      I agree. At one time I owned the Sling bag as well as their day luxe tote. They are as you said, very well made and a great classic understated bag.

    • Melissa

      This is great to know. I’m considering purchasing my first ROW and it will be the suede version of the one in this post. I love the style but not knowing much about the Row I was unsure of the quality.

  • FashionableLena

    The blinded out one looks like an old lady carpet bag. I admire hobo bags from afar because they are just not my style. This one, however, is doing nothing for me.

    The Row bags are truly amazing!! My sling 15 hobo gets lots of love from me, super soft and chic! The quality of the bag is one of the best in my collection.

  • Sparky

    I did a double take – $10,000 for the first one???

  • kemilia

    Too much money for a plain slouchy bag. The beaded one is not good.
