I did not care for YSL Downtown bag until gal pal let me borrow hers for the weekend I was in San Francisco. After that, SG has been lusting after one. So finally after much shopping around, being a savvy gal I finally purchased one from the YLS outlet store. The same exact same one is on sale at Bluefly for $1276. The full retail price is about $1500. I picked the medium in chocolate deer skin with removable key strap and suede lining since I am only 5’4”, the large one dwarfed me. Also I like the medium (measuring 14" tall x 10" x 8" deep) because it appears wider compare to the large one (measuring 17" tall x 11" x 8" deep), which appears longer. The leather is very supple and the tote roomy enough to carry all my stuff which I have lots of them. One bad thing is there is only one small patch pocket inside and I am always fishing for wallet, phone and keys. But, I still really like it regardless. If anyone is interested, I am sure they will ship. The price for medium leather Downtown is $749, large Downtown is $899, and canvas Downtown is about $700. Call the store at (951) 922-8026; I am sure they will be more than happy to provide price and information.I did not like the canvas as much as a gal can only use it during warmer seasons. It is on sale at Bluefly for $1196 but at the outlet for about $700. I don't remember the exact price.
P.S. YSL Downtown has with and without pocket versions on the outside front of the bag. I picked the one without pocket for its cleaner line. The version without pocket in front has a removable key strap instead. This white large is one is from Bluefly for $1436 but at the outlet, price is $899.
