Apparently there have been a few returns of the original LARGE Coco Cabas in leather. The SA called to tell me that one has been returned, and back in the store, but not available for sale at the moment... but probably will be available for me. (Someone on the list before me?) The newer smaller cruise Cabas is also in the stores. I went to look at all of them. They don't really suit me. Out of all the Cabas I tried, the original large one is the best for me. I'm tall and although they are kind of sloppy looking, the balance is better than the newer, smaller and quite full looking Cabas cruise bag. Here's the thing! The Fall large cabas is a return and I think it's been a bit used. I saw one or two scratches on the outside. The SA said those weren't scratches, but rather, the leather is distressed to look like that. I don't believe her... or should I? They sure look like small scratches. Something about a bag that has been worn (even once or twice) by someone else kind of bothers me, since I am paying full price. In any case, I think the GST... which I have been deliberating over for 2 weeks now, may be the better choice for me. I think it's hard to pull off the look of a Cabas. Please tell me what you think. I would love to hear everyone's opinions.
