BLACK GST--It is shiny? Washed? PLS HELP.

  1. So, I just received my Black GST from Saks in Santa Barbara... It seem pretty shiny, the caviar leather has quite a sheen to it. Does that mean it's the older version, from fall/winter?

    Can anyone help? Thanks.

    Oh, and there's no season on the tag, but the style # is A20995Y01864.

    :smile:
     
  2. Post some pictures and I'm sure someone can tell you. I prefer the older cavier to the washed myself.
     
  3. I can't post cause I'm at work and don't have my camera... And about to leave on a work trip. Does anyone have a black GST who can give me info on the shine? lol. Thanks.

    Umm...I don't know...Mine has some shine. Not a lot to wear it looks wet, or mirrored. KWIM? Glossy. Depending how I move the bag around...a gloss shines over it.

    When I first got mine I thought it looked really shiny too. I think it might've been the lighting though. (I had been viewing it in my family room with some lighting).

    Perhaps in certain lighting it may appear slightly more shiny. :shrugs:

    HTH!! :yes:



    --->> Ohh......also the style # on mine is the same.
     
  5. Thank you!!
     
  6. old Caviar should have a glossy finish and more stiff, there's also a new batch of 'Washed' Caviar that's less glossy & more soft :flowers: BTW, if you don't need it in a hurry, you should wait for Saks's EGC this month to get some $ back :graucho: there are plenty of threads about EGC in 'Deals and Steals' forum :smile:
     
  7. Washed caviar is supposed to feel smooth, and regular caviar has the pebbly texture.

    Not sure if that answers your question, but what is the serial number of the bag?
