Just realized that there are actually 2 sizes of cabas with the stitched bottom! I thought I would share it here, in case anyone else is also not aware. I think the smaller one is what we have been seeing in the Coco Cabas reference thread, while there is a larger one with braided straps instead of just chain with interwoven leather. I have attached a pic of the bigger bag sent to me by my SA and you can also see the strap in details in this auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/AUTHENTIC-CHANEL-COCO-CABAS-champagne-LEATHER-sold-out_W0QQitemZ320106003778QQihZ011QQcategoryZ63852QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem For those of you who are looking for the larger Coco cabas and can't find one, perhaps you can consider this instead. If I remembered correctly, it retails for USD1925 and according to my SA, the waiting list is much much shorter.
