One is from Jacobs' high-end collection ($907), while the other is from his mass Marc by Marc Jacobs line ($32).

The retro-stylish logo bags have been given away at Comic-Con, floated to fans on the Internet, displayed in bus shelter ads and looped over the lithe arms of the "Pan Am" flight attendants in promotional posters. Even though the show doesn't make its inaugural flight until Sept. 25, handbags and accessories bearing the name and logo of the world's most famous defunct airline are easy to come by.
