I have been loving the revival of the Gucci Jackie and have been searching for a vintage one to add to my collection.
There seem to be two styles, the classic Jackie and the Bardot. I originally wanted the classic Jackie in canvas but seem to be falling for the other.
Does anybody here have either of these, what are your experiences, and please share photos :smile:
The only reason I am going vintage is that I hate the Gucci coated canvas.

I would not buy a hobo bag with the old uncoated canvas. They notoriously don’t hold up. There have been a few discussions about the canvas issues on here. I have an old hobo (not Jackie) that’s in horrible condition because of wear to the canvas. The coated canvas is what makes it durable. Thus I would stick with leather if going vintage.

Have you seen the new leather versions of the Jackie? I love it in leather and canvas . IMO I would take another look at the new bags.

All of the Jackie sizes are available in leather on the Gucci site. I believe they all have long straps that come with so you can use the bag crossbody. Love them!

As @snibor mentioned earlier, I would not buy uncoated canvas ('original fabric') ever again.

There are some lovey pre-loved Jackies (and Bouviers) around without having to

BTW, the first you posted is a Bardot and not a Jackie (2 handles, not 1)

Do you want me to change the title then?

The Bardot is not a type of Jackie. It's a different line.
The Jackie is a type of Bouvier
It doesn't really matter does it, I was just asking for help choosing one since I'm not sure which one to pick
