I'm thinking about bidding on this vintage Gucci, but I want to know more about it. It's a charity donation bag with a COA and guaranteed authentic so it can be returned.
It's so unique and so far not too expensive.
Anyone know the name or what time period its from?

Hello all, this is a Boston probably dated 2009. I have always been curious why is there a hook in one side and not the other? Wouldn’t it make sense to have a hook on each side so one can purchase a strap?


Another question:
Has anyone seen or own an older Gucci tote with the red and green stripe down the middle? A proper tote that would fit probably a slim laptop. I can’t describe it more but, it’s what got me hooked on gucci many years ago when I would always see this particular girl carrying it.

That's funny. I've got a similar Boston and it has hooks on both sides. In fact it's got a strap too which you can attach or remove. The structure is a bit different though (pls see the pics)

OMG!!!!!! Bag twinning is like the best kind of twinning that's out there. I feel so happy seeing yours. They look like really identical. Amazing how well these hold up right? Not a scratch.
I was recently contemplating on selling it, but now that I see yours, I’ll probably reconsider :biggrin:
Yayyyyy Gucci Twins!!!!:heart:

Spot on for the date!

It's not a mistake. The ring is a D-ring and on the med and large is not for a strap but to pull the zip straight while zipping (and occasionally dangle a charm from)
