My vote goes to navy metallic. Very nice color and you can use it daily eventho it is metallic.

since you already have black caviar jumbo with gold hardware,...it'll be nice to add reissue to your collection. Metallic navy or 08 Fall dark silver reissue is a great color to choose. IMHO, 08 fall dark silver reissue can be used as an everyday bag or a nice evening bag.

It depends, do you wear a lot of browns? Then I would get the brown jumbo in caviar. But if you don't then get the metallic or even the red caviar. It just depends on what color you wear most in your wardrobe and if you like you purses to match it.

since you already have a black caviar flap, my vote goes to the reissue for variety!

but between the metallic reissue & brown caviar jumbo, i think the jumbo will probably be more 'timeless'. the metallic reissue might be too trendy?

If you're only having two bags then I'd vote for variety - the reissue. Although I must say the brown jumbo is fantastic! (I love mine.)

The metallic reissue is dressier then the non-metallic- imo, but in the 227 or 228 I think it can be a very nice day bag- it would just be the statement in your outfit.
Depending on the colors in your wardrobe, I would suggest the brown flap or the grey reissue as I think they are less trendy than the metallic and will be classics you can carry forever.

I think the brown jumbo caviar is more timeless and easier to match with jeans.
you will get a lot use of it... or grey reissue. ( non metallic). I think brown and grey just the new black. they are great specially will fall /winter season around the corner..
