I'm trying to decide between a BLK and Mandrine wallet. In this photo from my SA it looks kinda redish orange? Is it redish orange? Anyone own this color from BAL that can tell me? I dont want a straight orange color but a redish orange I dont mind. I cant see it in the store since its in the East Coast. Anyone can help? I wanted to get a BLK bag and colored wallet or Colored Bag and BLK wallet but I thought my first bag should be blk.

Mandarine is very orange, it sounds like 08 Coral might be what you're looking for.

Mandarin is a dark but bright orange. It's a gorgeous colour but be warned that a lighter coloured wallet will age more quickly because it shows wear and dirt more. But the same is true for a bag, of course. But a mandarin wallet will be a great pop inside your bag, that's for sure. As an alternative you could look at 10 tomate, that is orange too, quite similar to mandarin.

Here's a pic of a mandarin cp:
