The Ultimate Goyard Tote Comparison: Saint Louis vs Anjou vs Artois

The Ultimate Goyard Tote Comparison: Saint Louis vs Anjou vs Artois

Hey Goyard lovers! Can't decide which iconic tote to snag? We've got you covered. Today, we're putting three of Goyard's most popular totes – the Saint Louis, Artois, and Anjou – in the ring for a head-to-head battle! We'll break down their looks, functionality, and who each bag is perfect for. Let's get started!

 

 

Round 1: Canvas with Character

All three totes use Goyard's signature Goyardine canvas, known for its durability and timeless style, and masterful craftsmanship. Goyardine canvas is a coated canvas, offering a subtle texture and a pleasing rigidity. It is at the same time very soft, allowing you to crumble the Saint Louis. The Artois is the most rigid among all three because it's lined with a thicker canvas. The Anjou with its luxurious soft calfskin lining, is somewhere in between the two in terms of rigidity. 

 

Round 2: Structure & Security

The Saint Louis boasts a classic, relaxed silhouette. It's a blank canvas (pun intended!) for your everyday essentials. 

The Anjou steps it up with a luxurious leather lining that adds a touch of sophistication. 

Bonus: Anjou's Secret Weapon: Did you know the Anjou is reversible? That's right! Flip it over, and you've got a whole new bag with the luxurious leather taking center stage. Leather or canvas? The choice is yours!

Taking cue from the leather seams which are also present in the Saint Louis, the Anjou may be meant to be worn with the leather side out! In fact the seams gave the bag such nice structure when they are inside. But many chose to wear with the Goyardine side out to reveal the beautiful print. 

 

Looking for a tote that stands tall, even when empty? The Artois is your champion. Its reinforced corners and stiffer canvas give it a more formal feel. It even has a zipper closure for extra security, perfect for those days you're juggling a latte and your phone. 

 

Round 3: Size Matters

The Saint Louis comes in two sizes: the PM (perfect for everyday essentials) and the GM (which might swallow you whole – kidding, but it's big!).

The Anjou offers three sizes, including a mini that's surprisingly roomy and adorable. It's like Mary Poppins' bag – it holds way more than you think! Just a heads up, though, since it doesn't have a closure, be mindful of spills.

Mini 20 21 10.5

The Artois comes in two sizes, PM and MM. The PM size is slightly smaller than the Saint Louis PM. It might be a good fit if you prefer a more compact tote.

MM 24 30 13.5

Round 4: Price

Anjou is the most expensive model of all three, and rightly so because it's lined with calfskin leather. The price goes up with the sizes, however, on the resale market, Anjou mini can sometimes fetch a higher price than the PM and GM due to its scarcity and popularity. 

Model Retail Price (US)

Saint Louis PM

$1,690
Saint Louis GM $1,890
Anjou Mini $2,420
Anjou PM $2,780
Anjou GM $3,130
Artois PM $2,270
Artois MM $2,540

The Verdict: It's All About You!

There's no clear winner here. The Saint Louis is the OG tote, perfect for those who love a classic look. The Artois is the structured, secure option for the busy professional. And the Anjou, with its reversible design and size range, is the ultimate chameleon.
