Got this bag through lovely TPF enablers like katie123, thegraceful1, minnie04 and foxyclepatra! Here it is! Can't wait to carry it tonight! I posted pics of this black reissue in 226, next to my 2.55 in beige in the 255 size just to compare. When i first got the black bag, I was rather concerned about the lock. It seems so tarnished and rather scratched looking...but when i look at other pics of the bag, it seems the same way too. The leather is also much thinner than my caviar 2.55. I noticed that the bottom of the bag was someone creased in the middle as a result of shipping (they did pack it nicely with the dustcover inside...but I don't think it was thick enough. What do you think ladies?
