Guys.. I saw this classique in a consignment store yesterday and I just had to buy it. I'm not a big fan of the dirty olive color, but it has flat studs! It also has that long easy clip on/off strap, that nicole richie (?) carried. It's definitely a keeper, but it's just so unusual- I wonder if people will think I'm schlepping around a fake. I'm going to carry it with pride though!

I'm surprised with how the leather was on this old bag, it resembles the newer leather quite a bit, although not as crackly. It also has plain black plastic zippers inside, and non-lampo brass zippers. I don't doubt it's authenticity, it's well crafted and has wielded o-rings throughout... Does anyone have this old classique as well?

Thanks Cristina! I keep having alternating thoughts of keeping or selling.. I'm going to take it out today and see how I feel about it! (And search for more. hehe. I'm bad)

I love the color! Did it come with any tags or cards to help us identify what year it is from?
