Thanks--I was despairing of finding an Hermes "basic". By basic I mean two things: large and neutral in color. My bag collection is colorful to say the least and I decided I needed a black or tan. I dont do dark brown or warm browns like cognac/noisette etc. I like bolides but the larger sizes are in that smushy clemence which i dotn much like. This has that debutante slouch as the leather is heavy and smooth........It has gold hardware which I never buy but in this classic a bag it works fine.
thanks--its so sleek and understated too.............i kind of wish it had silevr hardware which is what I always buy. I have turned down fabulous birkins b/c I dont like gold on my bags but with this it was just so classic. It someone seems more majestic with gold. (not like i had the choice)
