As any handbag aficionado knows, it is practically impossible to get a discount on a Coach bag. Department stores usually do not include Coach in their across the board sales, and their coupons usually exclude Coach products. Coach remains true to its beginnings in 1962 as making top quality and impeccably fashionable pieces. The company does not skip any steps in the quality of their leather and their manufacturing and design process and always has kept to the classic quality and style they are known for.
One of the frequently counterfeit brands, genuine Coach bags are recognized easily by the fine quality of the hardware, leather, and stitching. I have seen a lot of fake Coach bags in my day and I can always tell the fake by the stitching. If the stitching is not completely straight and perfectly made, its fake. Another tip off is the hardware. Coach hardware is always perfectly formed with no funky seams, or cheap looking finish to the metal. Coach never sells via street vendors, back room shops, or purse parties, so if you think it’s a fake it probably is. Since Coach bags and accessories are not cheap, what’s a girl to do in order to get a real Coach at a discount price?
The answer is the Coach Factory Outlet Stores. This store is a fantastic place to get Coach items for about 30% off, sometimes markdowns can even be higher on discontinued styles. Since Coach does had branched out quite a bit from simply selling handbags, check out their newer lines selling everything from scarves to shoes, and all manner of accessories. Those with impeccable style always have a wallet that matches their handbag so make sure to check out the wallets available in coordinating styles to your purse.
For a list of Coach Factory Outlet Stores across the United States see this link – www.malls-info.com/outlet/coachoutletstores.html. There are currently over 75 of the Coach outlets. These stores sell first quality merchandise from Coach at reduced prices. I myself carry a Coach makeup case in my bag, which I purchased at a Coach outlet over 10 years ago. Of course these leather items last forever, and the fact that I bought it for about half off makes this one of my favorite purchases.
My favorite Coach bags are the classic styles in black leather. I have been carrying the same bag off and on for a number of years and it looks great. I bought it at the Coach store, left it wrapped up, and gave it to my husband and said “Here is my Christmas present from you.” Every once in a while I clean it with the Coach leather cleaning kit, and the leather is beautiful. My goal is to purchase of the beautiful patchwork “signature” bags so I am keeping my eye open for just the right bag that is calling my name. Guess where I will be shopping? Meet me at the Coach factory outlet store.
