Via the New York Times in April 2011: "The Coach Duffle bag, which was designed in the 1970s by Bonnie Cashin, is just the sort of no-logo, no-hardware, no- nonsense bag that no one is making anymore. Not even Coach, which saw fit to put this workhorse out to pasture in 1997. But starting June 15, Net-a-Porter is bringing back the Duffle, as well as four other seminal styles from that era, as the Coach Classics collection. Fans of the original will notice only one minor adjustment: an ad for Neiman Marcus in The Dallas Morning News from the ’70s listed the Duffle for $36. This summer it will set you back $398."

We're happy to be able to offer this fantabulous early Coach Duffle Bag, circa the 80s, a piece of fashion history as well as this year's fashion must have! The "new" re-released $398 Coach duffles that are mentioned in the New York Times article quoted above are now made offshore, and unlike older American made Coach bags, are made of a lighter, flimsier, non-US leather. They are nice enough bags.. but in my opinion they are simply not as nice as this bag - and it is close to 30 years old!

It's hard to find a Coach Duffle from this era up for sale, because it is a 'keeper' bag. People (men and women) carry them forever, and hand them down to their children. Coach Large Duffle Bags are so useful, last forever and have the great American casual chic that a great vintage pair of jeans has! Originally designed for Coach by design icon Bonnie Cashin, this is a must have bag for any Coach collector or American fashion buff - or anyone that just wants a great big all-leather vintage bag. Timeless, classic yet contemporary styling, extra large size, and fantastic old school quality construction & leather, what's not to love?

Notes on condition: We do need to say that this is not a bag for someone who is looking for a new Coach bag. It is vintage, it is close to 30 years old according to our authenticator at The Purse Forum. It is in good usable shape and is clean, ready to use. It is pre-owned, possibly was a daily wearer, it has wear and patina typical for a vintage Coach bag of its age that was regularly worn. The leather, piping, straps and hardware are all in very good functional shape, there are minor wear related marks, scratches and dings noticeable if you examine the bag closely, they do not impact the overall good looks of this bag. We did notice a small (3/8") dark indented flaw in the leather near the base, see photos. This does not impact usability or wearability, and you'd need to look closely to see it - but it is there, we have adjusted pricing accordingly. We have had this bag professionally cleaned and conditioned, further conditioning and continued TLC will help improve & preserve the leather.

Vintage pricing also means you get a super price on an huge, bold gorgeous all leather Coach bag in a desirable and hard to find (collectible) style/year.
