I've heard SA's calling it super-box, similar to box but even better....their words not mine

I haven't heard but box wasn't offered for the Birkin at the podium. Looks like Box Birkin has to be a SO. It's not being replaced because there will be the new blue box in AW2009.

Don't think so. I can't think of anything Hermes that was solely made in Box and Box only. And now come only in Tadelakt.

Hermes is using Tadelakt more, it being a new skin. I can imagine the warehouse full of Tadelakt actually.

Unfortunately, I was told that tadelakt is only in the smaller bags like the medor, jige, etc. I hope my SA at Mad was mistaken, but he's the best of the bunch and rarely wrong. Could be quoting what Mad ordered and not reflective of worldwide availability? I dunno, I so don't need another bag anyways!!

i've noticed bracelets in tadelakt too... a pretty tadelakt Kelly double tour in griolet and in etoupe. in the little skinny bits tadelakt looked like something between barenia and swift to me. but then box has surprised me too, due to patina variations i suppose. geez, i'm tired; this post doesn't sound lucid... :rolleyes::sleepy:

nope i have seen kellys and birkins in it too!

and no tadelakt does not replace box they just promote it more at the moment. plus given the rarity of box they often suggest it as a"replacement" for your box wish simply as it is easier scored if that makes sense.

I just SO'D a box HAC and they accepted the order. They didn't tell me that box would be called something else.
