I have a question regarding the recent nightingale, how come the logo at the handle is embossed already and not the gold hardware kind? Can i still find the gold hardware logo in stores?

Lambskin and sheepskin Nightingales come with only the stamped logo but calfskin and LE ones come with the gold hardware....they're more expensive as well.

i personally prefer the gold hardware kind. have you noticed that some of the embossed are off center? eesh, not a fan of that QC. esp for that retail price.

mine are limited editions.
not really into family pix.
i prefer action shots and do so on my blog. lots of invidual pix of them.
i sold one so i have 3 'gales now. the new matte med, distressed black patent large and distressed balck calf with black snakeskin handles.
just the perfect every day bag.

the antigona is a pretty and practical bag, but a little too structured for me. my life is structured enough (haha) which why the 'gale works so well. holds everything, has shape, but you can muss it up, plus i love the distessed leathers that get better and better with use.
