Not orange at all. It's a deep rich saddle color, IMO. I have it in the Conrad (rich saddle shade) and the carryall - no orange. IMO.

ITA... not orange. I have a yam Tharpe. More of the Kraft caramel color (but a tad lighter) of the TCP. I think perfect for all seasons.

^ BTW I agree with indiaink - it's NOT orange, but it's a warm tan... sort of vintage looking, like a great old Coach bag of yesteryear.

yam has a nice tan orangey color to it, making it a more neutral orange and not a bright one. its really awesome!

ExACTly like old Coach. They started their business (I think I'm remembering this correctly) making baseball gloves back in the day. And Yam reminds me so much of baseball glove leather. Even in the way it ages.

I wish there was a baseball emoticon.
I wish it was spring training already.

Yam is a beautiful leather. And also, I was at the HH design shop and saw they have a new color for spring, Yam shine (like patent yam). So yes, definitely not just a fall color!
