J. P. Tod’s suede driving moc is so down home and comfy looking with a Duck Dynasty vibe that makes it look like inexpensive army surplus instead of a $445 Italian import. Kinda like the Robertsons themselves, who don’t look like money but have it.
Cult status aside, at the fin de la jour, an Hermes Birkin is an expensive, ladylike tote with little flash factor other than the cash required to buy it. Yes, it’s a great work bag and travel bag, but so are these at an average of 1/5 of the $10,000 Birkin price tag for most of the leather totes. Exotic skins obviously cost more.
