Hi all! New to Chanel (normally in the LV and Balenciaga forums) and have now decided (after months of lurking) that I need a black luxury bowler! I really prefer the deerskin (lambskin?) in black or metallic black, but all my local NM had (to transfer in) was black patent. Can anybody tell me if there are any black (non-patent) luxury bowlers available? Where would be a good place to start calling? TIA! PS If I go w/the black patent - do you think it will be timeless? Or look dated in a few years?
