What did you think of the fringe knot (other than it wasn't quite right for you)? I haven't seen in IRL yet but I love the look of it from the catalogue. I am a regular size knot girl.
Thanks, YellowLabKiss! I seem to have developed a more adventurous streak when it comes to nails this past year.

I pre-ordered the fringe knot from the trunk show a few months back. I love texture on leather bags/clutches and this one was all that and yet was buttery soft. Plus, Poussin is a great neutral color and would be the perfect foil from my other knot which is Ink (dark blue violet) with some metallic accents. BV did another nappa fringe ayers knot 2-3 years back and I think this 2013 version is much classier.

I posted close up shots of the weave on the following thread in case you've not seen - http://forum.purseblog.com/bottega-v...l#post24090284

If it came in a stretch and if $$$ was not an object for the croc knot then I would've kept both. Alas, I'm not like sbelle... who keeps both (just kidding, S!)

Thanks, SS! You took the words off my mouth...

I live in a country where returns aren't the norm. Thankfully, it all worked out and I was able to get the perfect knot for me.

It was the last piece where I lived and I knew it was now or never.

My Poussin Nappa Fringe Ayers knot while lovely, had to go back. Deep in my heart, I knew that I would always be a stretch knot kind of a gal. And Steel reminded me of the Ash fume stretch knot from 4-5 years back (the one that got away).
OMG ..... I love it, congratulation on that magnificent knot .... I know what you mean about the Fume... I regret not buying it too, Enjoy your gorgeous bag

Thanks, hotshot! I initially thought that a croc knot is to be reserved for more formal and dressier occasions but I completely get what you're saying about the "day & evening" functionality. For instance, I used it yesterday and I was just in my casual weekend get-up of t-shirt and jeans.

Thanks for your kind words, mundodabolsa, papertiger and Miva!

Now on the topic of Steel vs. Ash croc knots... I have long admired the Ash croc knot from afar and was more than happy to hear that they've been sold out for a while now. That way, I don't need to keep dreaming about it.

Ash is 2 shades darker and had stronger olive undertones. Steel on the other hand has a wider range of undertones because it looks grey under certain lighting and dark beigey brown in others. I didn't make the connection that both colors in croc would look quite close since the same colors in nappa look very distinct.

I never even thought of checking the Steel croc knot when they introduced the color last year and was pleasantly surprised on the resemblance. It must be the fume (smoked) effect during the dyeing process but I'm glad it turned out this way.

Now how about a group shot... and a few more details of the knot clasp. I moved the ring to my index finger since it looked better on the photo.

Thanks, both! I'm "steel" in a knot daze

annie9999 - all is well and I hope the same is with you. Been busy with work, transitioning into a new role and cheating a lot with shoes lately (my greatest weakness). NYC is definitely in the cards this year and I'll email all of you as soon as it is locked.

Thanks, boxermom! I'm not an exotic fanatic as well but the stars seem to have aligned for this one. The color, the size (stretch knot all the way!), the scales (I prefer smaller over larger sections)... it was the perfect one for me.

I thought about it and in the end, I realized I'd rather have this one knot than 3 others that doesn't tick all my boxes.
