I can't say for sure because I'm not looking at the actual bags, nor am I measuring their dimensions.

But it seems to me, aside from the stated descriptions, the most obvious difference is the colors. One is Fire, and the other is Black. That alone might be why they have two different item numbers. These bags are soft (not rigid) and their individually made, so perhaps whoever was writing up the measurements when they were preparing the item descriptions measured two sample bags and got two different results.

But again, I don't work for Neiman Marcus, so I can't say for sure.

nappa leather is lambskin
color is your preference
has a lot to do with what colors your wardrobe are what colors you like
I believe that both a maxi Venetas
three people could measure and get 3 different answers
why don't you compare it to dimensions on the website
I think they are there not sure
I myself did not buy a maxi because I am short 5'2" and felt that it was to wide
I purchased a large nero belly
the rounded corners were better for me
if you don't buy it from NM you should buy it from a BV boutique
if anything happens to it within a year a purchase BV will fix or replace it
don't know the NM policy
my SA is joyce at the atlanta store she is great

obanana - I agree, the measurements do vary slightly because these are handmade, but everyone seems to measure differently. I would defer to the BV website ( http://www.bottegaveneta.com ). For example, here is the Safari Maxi: http://www.bottegaveneta.com/default...804587491.html
The Maxi I used to own was 22", not 19" wide.

obanana- do you have access to anyplace where you could try on the maxi veneta? it is really so much a personal preference. i have the maxi and the large veneta and right now i prefer the large veneta- not that i don't like my maxi veneta-

the maxi veneta is really big although it gets very slouchy and has a really nice casual funky vibe and can hold a ton while still being light weight.

i have never owned a chanel bag so i cannot contrast with chanel but i think the dirt factor is more color dependent and for that reason i pretty much stick to the darker neutrals.

i would not hesitate to buy from neiman's and they have a better return policy. as far as servicing i believe that as long as the bag is an authentic bottega then bottega will service it although not sure if there will be a charge.

in my experience the bags do not require a lot of servicing and when one of mine did it was fixed perfectly.

take you time and ask tons of questions.

the BV policy as of last january 2010
it is the policy of all BV USA to fix repair any mfg defect within a year of purchase from a BV USA boutique.

As far as I know if you place a phone order with BV.com or a BV boutique that they will only be able to ship to the billing address of the card holder.

If you are in a BV store in person and swipe your card, they will ship it to any address.

Hi there, a quick question. If I have never been in a boutique to make a purchase, can I call any SA in any boutique to place an over-the-phone order? Or can I only buy online? Thanks for the clarification!
