Okay--I had a few minutes to kill before meeting a friend for a movie and I popped into Barneys to look around and they had a black Classique in an unveined leather--heavier leather it seemed--really nice--and SILVER hardware! I was really confused and asked the SA who didn't seem familiar with the line (the cards were sealed in plastic and I didn't want to rip the plastic open with her hovering) if it was possible this was an older bag. She looked at the Barney's tag and said it was a return and that's all she knew. It looked real, the rivet things had no notches in the back, but they also weren't flat, but I was thrown by the return thing. What was this?
