I went to the boutique today to see the new stuff and didn't see any pond patent ergo totes. I've been hoping to see one in real life because I wanted to see what the color REALLY looks like. They only had the brown on display, so I asked about the pond and was told (after they checked the computers) that NONE of the stores on Long Island (not even Roosevelt Field or the Americana Manhasset) or in any "nearby" major cities (like Boston and Philadelphia) had it. According to the SAs, there are only 88 pond patent ergo totes at JAX. Has anyone else heard this? Has anyone actually seen pond patent at a store? It seems weird that Coach would make so few of them (originally, one of the SAs said that pond wasn't being released at all due to defects, but then I and the other SAs told her it was available online.....so maybe there's some truth to that? Maybe most were defective and that's why there are so few?) Thankfully, I don't think pond would look good on me, so the info wasn't devastating, but I just figured I'd post this so those of you who are hoping to get one could order one fast, and so I could find out if anyone else has heard this.
