Sooo I've been totally lusting after a St. Louis GM for some time now, and I FINALLY received my new babe from Paris yesterday!! :yahoo::yahoo:
I was expecting the navy I see on tPF, but when I opened my package, I thought the color looked a bit different..not BAD, but different. I remember the leather trim being more of a royal blue and the trim on the bag I got is more of a true navy. I emailed the Paris store and asked them if they had changed the color, and Franck confirmed that, yes they did change the color of the leather! He said it is darker now. Sooo, here she is! My new navy GM tote!!! :graucho:

PS: I also took comparison shots with my St. Louis PM. I'm just about 5'4" by the way, and although the GM is LARGE bag, I don't think it is too large for me. :smile:

Me too and it's different enough from the old navy that I won't feel so bad about having two. I can't wait to see it IRL and Congrats on being the first to have it!

I'm loving the new blue as well! Looks more charcoal grey than anything else though...?

Congrats! It looks really good on you!

Congrats! Can you tell me if it is less expensive to order from Paris than buy from the SF boutique?

Hi gwen10, I'd say it depends where you live. I know that Goyard SF doesn't charge tax if they're shipping to a state that doesn't have Goyard (ie: not CA, NY, MA)...I ended up paying about the same price as the GM pre-tax once you add in shipping, customs fees and international credit card fees. So I saved 10% (well, like 9.5%) by ordering from Paris. Not a lot, but I guess it's kinda neat to say its directly from Paris!! HTH!

I have made two purchaese from Goyard SF and I live in NY they only charge taxes to destinations within CA, since the shop in shops in NY and MA are not freestanding they aren't a "store." If you would live in CA and would like to shop tax free you can call Bergdorf. I once made a purchase at BNY on Madison and shipped to CA and was charged tax because of the BNY in BH and now the BNY in SF crazy that I could have a walked a block over and saved $50.
