I just received my new HH Hudson Triple Strap Satchel, in smoke blue today. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=003&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWN%3AIT&viewitem=&item=130104103911&rd=1&rd=1 I'm really lovin the bag! It's even more gorgeous than pictured! I just have a question about the lining. Has HH recently changed the linings in the Hudson series? Do they change the linings from season to season? When I previously saw the lining of this bag (in pix on both eBay and TPF), it was a lighter colored canvas w/the HH signature print. This bag has a darker color lining w/the HH signature print. The color is nearly the same as the bag. Is this an older bag maybe? I was also wondering what owners of this bag (and the Hudson hobo) thought about the smell of the leather. I find it has a little bit of a chemical-like smell. I'm thinking it has something to do with the dye and leather combination(?). It doesn't have the "yummy" leather smell (like the tassel I bought from HH during the sample sale). I'm not thinking that this is a fake bag - I haven't ever seen a fake HH or even heard much about them, and personally, I don't think HH is "big" enough to be faked right now. But I am curious about the lining. I really love the bag. It's the perfect size & shape for me, and the leather is really gorgeous. Diff from what I had thought it would be - I bought a change purse during the SS & that leather was a little more "raw", but I find that the leather on the Triple Strap is a little more glossy & finished. Actually, I think it's better as I think it can hold up better and withstand wear better than leathers that are more raw. Any thoughts?
