I was given a gift card recently for the holidays, to a department store I do not usually shop at. I am currently pregnant so buying new clothes is out. I have been wanting a new handbag, my current is almost a year old. I normally stick with Coach, but have been eyeballing a few Michael Kors lately. This store has 25% off of Michael Kors handbags and wallets, so I can get both for $50 more than the gift card. If I went with another Coach it would be more, and I typically like to purchase these at the outlet store.
My question is, should I stick with what I know and get a Coach, or what is your oppinion on Michael Kors? Does anyone have both, which do you think is better quality?

I have had both Coach and MK and I think they are very similar in terms of quality. I would go for it! I will say that it may be better quality than what you are used to with Coach because a lot of outlet Coach is made specifically for the outlet with lower quality materials.

I have been using my MK bag for nearly a year straight and it has held up wonderfully. No wear or tear at all! I can’t speak for Coach as I’ve never owned one.

I used to only buy coach bags, but I got a MK bag a year ago (it’s all leather). It’s held up better than my coach bags tbh. They’re worth the money 🙂

Thanks everyone!! With the discount it is less expensive to go with the MK, so I am excited to order it now!

I’ve had several of both and I think MK is better quality than Coach. I loved Coach in college, but MK is more sleek and professional looking to me. If you can get a bag for $50 I would totally go for it!

Well, I’m going to need pictures of both to make a wise decision 😀

I love both brands but I think MK purses hold up better.

I second what a prior poster stated about COACH outlet merchandise not being the same as the retail products (this likely is also the case with many other name brand outlet merchandise, including MK.) COACH does usually have some retail bags available at outlet stores, but you need to ask for them or know how to read the tags to be sure.
I also have a LOT of COACH as well as a number of MK bags. I think the quality is similar overall. I would go for whichever bag you love the most. 🙂

I am having a hard time narrowing it down! There are sooooo many gorgeous bags, and I cannot decide. I do not know how much longer they will be offering the 25% off so I need to move quick.

I would go with MK over Coach anyday. Also look at Kate Spade and Tory Burch- I love them as well!

I have heard this, I have a few that I have purchased from the outlet, and a few from the department store, I have never noticed a difference. This could be because I switch them around and do not use the same bag for long periods of time. However the wristlet I bought from the outlet has held up VERY well for what I put it through LOL.
