Hi Hanzaho, the paddy came out in 2004, an east west bag was also produced then that had the padlock on the sides. The first Paddys out were Vanilla and tan, gorgeous gorgeous bags, and slightly larger than the medium now. Shall dig out some piccies for you, if anybody has any early season bags piccies, can they help hanzaho out please

2005 mini paddy in tan 2005 craie hobo wow, you forget how many great paddies there are, and this was in the first six months of production

OMG! I'm about to lose my mind! This is the BEST THREAD!!! I actually started to sweat looking at all the paddies from past years! I have the tan, red, and dark blue medium paddys from '05, and the huge black "travel" (20x10) size paddy from '05 as well. (Got that one from roz77772002. It took her weeks to find it, but she came through!) The only other '05s I have are the large size hobo paddys in chocolate and khaki. The rest of mine are '06s, and then there is a smattering of the 07's. But the '05s are SO SCRUMPTIOUS....I was thinking about the original Ascot satchels that I have and I don't exactly remember if they were '05 or '06...does anyone remember when those came out? I think I bought one at Neiman Marcus in the fall of '06, but it may have been from a previous season... GREAT PICS
