We all know that times are financially difficult right now, so the last thing that you may be worried about it is a new designer handbag. However, there’s no denying that men’s handbags are in, and you may be thinking that you want or need one. Fortunately, Walmart is there to solve this conundrum.
Then again, there’s that old saying, “You get what you pay for,” which pretty much applies to anything that you purchase. While it may not seem obvious at first, it also applies to men’s bags. While shopping at Walmart for necessary items could be an option for you, picking up a bag there isn’t. I mean, would you seriously buy a suit from Walmart? I didn’t think so.
Without further ado, here are five reasons that designer men’s bags are more reliable than ones found at Walmart.
For starters, many designer handbags are manufactured in limited quantities and have a trademark style that can even be personalized. Most people can spot that trademark and immediately know which designer created it (think Louis Vuitton). Also, designer bags come in a variety of styles and sizes that can fit your personal fashion and needs.
Men’s bags found at Walmart are obviously not unique, since they are massed produced and have been bought by many consumers. Instead of owning a unique bag that suits you, you’re left with a run-of-the-mill-bag that hasn’t been made to fit your needs.
4. Available Warranty
Since designer bags are made of superior products, many designer bag companies offer a warranty on their products, or at least free repairs for a given time. You may even be fortunate enough to find one that has a limited lifetime warranty.
Many of the men’s bags found at Walmart offer no warranties. You may be lucky enough to find one there that offers a one-year warranty, if that. Generally, if the bag you purchased there has any problems, you’re probably stuck with it. Or forced to purchase a new one from, I don’t know, maybe Walmart.
Since designer men’s bags are made from quality materials and craftsmanship, they’re bound to last for a long time, even if they’re exposed to the elements. If taken care of properly, it could be an item that you could have for the rest of your life or even pass down.
Since bags from Walmart aren’t made from superior materials, it’s a given that they won’t last as long as designer bags. Even if you take care of a Walmart bag, it just won’t hold up.
Designer men’s bags are not mass-produced. Because of this, they are created precisely with special attention to each and every detail. This includes everything from the design to the lining in the interior pockets. But, more importantly, you most likely won’t find a single flaw in the stitching or the cutting of the material used. Since the labor is meticulous for each bag, it will definitely have an effect on the retail price.
Bags at Walmart, however, are mass-produced in countries with low-wage workers, like China. Because of this, the amount of craftsmanship that goes into them is little to none. Most likely, that men’s bag from Walmart was made in a sweatshop by someone with no experience in the craftsmanship of bags.
1. Quality, Not Quantity
Designers strive for their products to have the best quality. It doesn’t matter if the bag is made out of leather, suede, or cotton; you can be certain that the materials are nothing less than 100% genuine and top quality. This includes everything, even the zippers, chains, strap rings, and buckles.
The idea behind Walmart’s stores is mass-production for the masses. This is why their products are cheaper. However, to mass-produce a product, they have to skimp on the materials being used. Which means an all-around cheap product.
Sure, it may be tempting to buy a much cheaper bag at Walmart than to splurge on a designer men’s bag, but it will cost you more in the long run. Ultimately, you’ll be left with a cheaper looking bag that won’t last.
