Is the inside of a chloe silverado and a paddy the same? Just curious ...
They both have the same cotton twill lining, but the pockets are different.
thank you so much! I never really realised the insides of my silverado until i was checking out the 'how to spot a real paddy' thread. And yes, my silverado is cream twill with those lines. thanks!
Were you worried about the Silverado's authenticity, as the lining didn't look like the Paddy's?
I actually prefer the way the earlier bags are inside, as I like the lozenge-shaped leather placket.
No - the silverado is from NAP so i knew she was real. I just thought that maybe chloe would have used 2 different fabrics on the insides of the bags.
What do u mean about the lozenge-shaped leather placket?
Mine is a newer silverado - one of the metallic silver ones ... not sure when that would be, like 2 years ago?
^ Sorry, I worded that badly. :shame:
I think the older Silverados had a lozenge-shaped placket that the zip for the internal pocket was mounted on (if you see what I mean?); certainly many of the older bags did, but I could be remembering wrong about the Silverado.
The search is down, so I couldn't find a pic on here (almost all pics I could find were cropped to show the heatstamp only), so I looked on eBay, but couldn't find a pic, of a definitely authentic Silverado, which clearly showed its lozenge-shaped leather pocket placket and I, obviously, didn't want to post pics of dubious bags and/or dubious sellers' bags.
But if you look at Silverados on eBay, you should see what I mean.
BTW, by lozenge-shaped, I mean a rectangle with a semi-circle stuck on each end.
Here's a pic of a (rather grubby!) SS '04 hobo (not mine, I should add!) with a lozenge-shaped placket, so at least you know what I'm on about(!):
Oh yes! that is what mine looks like! Although its a lot cleaner .... i just dont ever seem to 'mess up' my bags. Its not at all like i'm super clean or anything, they just dont get dirty.
^ Yes, same here.
Incidentally, just to clarify things for future reference, that pic is not of the inside of a Silverado Hobo, it is of the inside of another style of hobo (a plaited/braided strap one) from S/S '04; I just included it to demonstrate the lozenge-shaped placket.
Actually, coming to think of it, I don't even know if 'placket' is the right word; but I don't know what else to call it, so 'placket' it'll have to be!
