Today I erceived my first brand new H bag!
About three weeks ago I had visited the Hawaii store on vacation. After much talking and browsing, I put in a podium order for a 37cm fjord bolide in ebene. The SA had scoured the inventory in all stores and couldn't find anything even close.

Then, on Monday I get the call. She found a 37cm bolide in marron fonce--not exactly what I wanted, but close. I hadn't seen either color in real life so I decided to take a chance and buy it.

She arrived today, and is exactly what I hoped for!! A deep rich, luscious color, not exactly a brown--something more spectacular. It's a wonderful neutral that can go with brown or black.

Other thoughts...

Fjord was surprisingly NOT heavy to me. I was worried that it would be, but needed something very durable and I wanted a stiffer leather.

I've also included a pic of my bolide with my chocolate togo dogon wallet for color comparison (ignore the fingerprints on the wallet--time to giver her a gentle cleaning!).

Please welcome another bolide to the tpf family!
