oh wow, this is very informative~ I was wondering why did they call the giant hardware G12, G21 and even saw a G15 somewhereSo I just measured my mGH Gris Poivre, the hardware is ~15mm in diameter. And the original GH the hardware is ~20mm in diameter. If I'm not mistaken, Balenciaga call the old GH, G21 (21mm), and the new GH G12 (12mm). However we know there are two new GH sizes, one smaller 12mm (on City, PT, Velo etc) and one larger 15mm (on Work, Weekender, Day). They need to educate their SAs.
hi Balvert, could you post a comparison pic??Those on my SS12 (G12) are shinier compared to G21 which has a more vintage feel.

ya, I thought the G21 are more gun metal color.. the SA sent me pic of a bag with G12 and look almost like gold~ I prefer the vintage look one though..
See if this helps, comparison between FW11 Papyrus RGGH (PT) and SS GP mRGGH (Work).
