  4. I know I am late to the party for this post, but thought there was still too little actual information about the Artois size comparison. I had the St. Louis and hated it, not the least of the reasons because its straps literally break and split (was told by Goyard that there is plastic or resin inside the leather of the strap at the base), and the lack of shape. I loved the idea of the Artois but, even after reading all these posts was confused about the size. I ended up ordering from Goyard Neiman's Chicago the red Artois MM (now $2645 +$25 delivery fee), and had the SA send me some photos to compare with the St. Louis. There are NO returns by mail, so had to be sure!
    This is a comparison of the St. Louis PM (L) to the Artois MM (R). Also the SA holding each. The Artois this year looks "redder"; SA said that was because this year the white painted dots on the canvas didn't stand out as much...they wanted it to appear more "uniform" and blend better. I receive the Artois MM tomorrow...a bit apprehensive about the 19" wide at the top, but look forward to it! 20180701_134925_1530473267116.jpeg20180701_134940_1530473267054.jpeg 20180701_133751_1530473266976 2.jpeg

  5. First photo the SA wearing St. Louis PM, 2nd is the Artois MM. You can see the longer handles on the Artois and the more noticeable white on the St. Louis.
