Hi tPF fam....I purchased the Bordeaux laquered XL single. It is still brand spankin new and haven't been worn. My question is I am lusting for a Black one. Just wanted to know your opinions about whether I should get it in laquered or not. To me, the BEST thing about the laquered is the leather woven in the chain. I it. But Bloomies is having their F&F sale and would like to take advantage. They have a black but not lacquered therefore no leather in the chain. Can someone explain what "lacquered" means? And I know MJ boutiques don't have F&F however, I saw a thread when iluvmybags mentioned they do have an end of season sale. So here are my questions about that...is it tacky to ask my SA when a sale would be and to hold a the Black lacquered for me? Or should I just purchase from Bloomies the regular Black?? Thanks in advance for your opinions!!
