hi everyone---so i just received a bag from neimans in short hills, NJ through the mail...it is the 08 turq city with regular hardware. i was excited about the color but gasped in shock when i saw the handles: sea green stitching! it sticks out like a sore thumb if you ask me. i cant figure out how to ...could people please tell me what they think, and post pics of their handles if they also have a turquoise 08, in any style? its looking like a return to me now because the color difference is so prominent it almost looks fake (in my opinion)!

thank you VERY much!

This is right, I think. '08 Turq does have green-ish handles. There's been discussion about this. It's definitely not a defect or anything. Do you dislike it? If so, maybe you should get a different color. :yes:

The 206!
This is on all the turq bags. I haven't seen them IRL, but from pics I've seen throughout the forum, I think they look cool! But a lot of people don't like them. Maybe if you want a light blue sky blue from the s/s 08 collection might work for you?

i think you are both right! i might have to try a sky blue :smile: and not to knock anyone who likes it! it's just personal preference...and it stuck out to me, so I thought I would ask. Thanks for the input!

I actually love it when the stitching is different from the leather color. It looks so great to me, like a contrast. My rouille is like that and my 06 lilac had it.

My turq 08 city has contrasting stitching, and I dig it. However, if you don't like it, return the bag and get something that you love!

lol this is the first thing i noticed when i saw the turq o8 IRL. i was like "ehhh, why are the handles bright green??"

i think it stands out too... dont know if i could get past it or not to be honest. i'd probably send it back for sky blue, which is a wicked color IMO.

I agree, I don't like it either to be honest. They did that with another color a couple os seasons ago. I forget which color but I didn't like it either.

Yes, rouille has this too. It took me a little while to get used to it but now I quite like it as a feature of this bag.

I've been carrying mine since I got it, so about a week I guess and as the handles start to get broken in it gets less and less noticeable.
