IMG_6696.JPG ] I haven't seen much info on this distressed calf Boy. Pictures don't do this bag justice. What I loved about it is the distressed metallic finish seems pretty durable. The aged gold hardware against the silver tones in the bag are pretty. It seems like it would be a great everyday piece I'm curious what others are thinking about the bag and the crackled finish?

I am curious about this too. I am wondering if the leather feels nice - thick and substantial - or sort of plasticky? If it's a great leather then I think this piece is a great edgy staple!!

To me, It looks like a battered up boy in pictures. Maybe it looks better in person ‍♀

I love it but agree that texture matters. Would totally get it if it was smooshy like my distressed goatskin tote.

When I first saw the picture I really liked it, but the more I looked at it the more it seemed somewhat off to me. Usually it should be the other way around, right. What I think throws me off is the silver in the bag with aged GHW. I don't know if I'm a fan of that. Maybe in real life it looks different, maybe I will like this bag after some time. I have not seen this bag in real life and I do not have the desire to make a trip to Chanel just for this bag.

I don't care for it based on photos. Not a fan of the combo- gold hardware with silver bag (mixing warm tones with cool tones) and the crackled finish of the leather.

Might consider if in RHW or black hardware.... The look is nice and edgy, almost got a python feel to it without the delicate nature of python (purely look standpoint not sure if the material itself is actually durable as I haven't seen in person yet).

I love this bag! I am contemplating buying this one. I agree that they probably should have paired it with ruthenium hardware but either way I still love it.

It seems very durable. I remember thinking the edges looked like they would not show wear or scratch; this was a def plus.
