I recently purchased the Kooba Sloane in "Bark." I really like it, even though the tags are still on it. :shame: For those that are thinking about the Sloane vs. the Lena, in Bark, the Sloane's color is a markedly deeper, darker shade of brown. Also it has less of a green-ish cast to it. (I ordered two of each from NM as I was undecided...and when I chose the style I wanted, I wanted a choice from two bags ) But now I have a dilemma. While perusing bags the other night online, I came across the Kooba Paige in their new "Java" color. I like the style, as I saw it Friday night at Neiman's in the Bourbon color. The "Java" Paige is a pre-order now, due the first week of December. Now I can't decide if I want to keep the Sloane, or trade it in for the Paige in the new color. I can fit both bags on my shoulder, no problem. My issue is they each have their own unique and different style. I think the Paige is much more casual, where the Sloane can pull off a dressier look if need be. My first hesitation on the Paige would be that the Sloane has a darker faux suede lining, whereas the Paige has a pink faux suede lining. Opinions? Just curious. Thanks!
