Girls,

got my 2010 canard town 2 days ago and now have a question about the shoulder strap. Both ends of my shoulder are folded over the hardware and wrapped around it, creating a double layer of leather. Is this normal on the town strap? What are yours like? I know that usually this typical for fake bags :amazed:.

Can you post a picture please? And how long is your strap? The leather is folded over, yes, but then it's stitched on in such a way that you can't really see the two layers, if that makes sense.

Thanks for your response, drati. I have no cam right now... Glad to hear that yours has two layers, too. The strap measures 102,5 cm.

That sounds about right. I no longer have my town but do remember what the strap looked like. I'll try to find a photo and will post here. I don't think the construction of the town strap is any different from that of other Balenciagas.

I will post pictures on saturday. Noticed that the RGGH on the strap is more yellowish than the HW on the bag. Anyone noticed the colour difference on 2010 RGGH bags???
