As you might know from my Tuesday report on the thread "Who's waiting next for the Birkin?" my Birkin didn't arrive ... but my friend got one in vert anis, togo, 30cm, palladium h/w. I, on the other hand, bought a Garden Party mainly for use as a gym/shopping bag. http://forum.purseblog.com/326003-post320.html Here are the pictures and it's the 35cm size. It's dark brown leather with beige-natural canvas. It's very lightweight and lots of room inside. I also put on my Bolduc twilly to personalize it a bit. I heard in another forum that Hermès can also refurbish canvas so when the bag gets dirty, Hermès can clean it and will apparently look like brand new.
