From an e-mail received from Alexa at theHipChick just seconds ago:

"Just confirmed with RM, the Basketweave Black MAM and MAB re-cuts WILL have the Blue Zipper track like the originals (will also have newly updated hardware).

There is limited recuts on this bag!

Let us know if we can help further!

Thankyou.

thehipchick isn't doing discounts, but at least the prices haven't gone up - $550 for the MAM, $595 for the MAB, free shipping over $150.

This is the HG bag for a lot of ladies here - I hope they can scoop 'em up.

Nope, the e-mail says 'updated with new hardware'. So the only difference is that blue zipper ...

desi, I'm good. But I'd started pestering theHipChick about this because the photo on their web site shows the old style - so I 'forced the issue', so to speak. Alexa and I must have exchanged ten e-mails! LOL!

^You could e-mail thehipchick@sbcglobal.net - make it to Alexa's attention. I was focused on the blue zipper and tassels - one out of two isn't bad...:yes:
yeah, i don't mind the new hardware, i actually love it! but i would really like the blue zipper and i think it would look fab w/ the new hardware!!!! i emailed Catalina about switching it out **fingers crossed**

Oh wow, this is amazing news!
Okay so my bag is from the 2nd batch (June) from FLL, any chance that those might have the blue zipper? Or should I pay more just for the blue zipper? Oh, I'm so indecisive. Help!

FLL does NOT have the blue zipper. It's all black with new hardware. theHipChick has apparently made a deal with RM to get the blue zipper version with the new hardware. That's all I know.
