    Dreamed about it for years, thought about it seriously for another year, then waited 6 months for the perfect bag to come in stock. Here's my unboxing reveal! Thanks to everyone at TPF for dealing with all my questions and for all your valuable info.

    I was between the reissue and CF and although I decided on the reissue, when I tried it in store the CF actually looked better on me. After seeing so many plasticky caviar bags and hearing about decrease in quality of caviar bags on this forum I opted for lambskin but the wait was unbearable as lambskin seemed to be harder to find. Then the wait made me think about how caviar would not only be easier to get but would also be more appropriate for my casual mid-twenties lifestyle.

    Got the bag today and the leather is soft, puffy, and not at all plasticky. So glad I went for the caviar. At the same time, I have no doubt I will eventually have a lambskin bag and a reissue later on as I build my collection.

    Without further ado, my new black caviar cf shw!

  2. Very beautiful. Congrats.
     
  3. Oooh, that looks like really excellent caviar quality!! Also, BAG TWINS!
     
  4. I know that sometimes the caviar flap can be hard to open and close (since sometimes it's stiff). Since yours is softer, is it easy to open and close the flap??
     
  5. Beautiful! Congrats!
     
  6. Congrats on your gorgeous CF!
     
  7. Great choice!
     
  8. Beautiful CF, very puffy, congrats!
     

  9. Hmm I have no problems opening and closing the flap. Only thing that is stiff is the inside flap but I think it gives more structure to the bag. Which is also why caviar holds its shape better than lambskin which is more prone to sagging over the years.
     
  10. Also my SA said that this seasons caviar leather seems to be very shiny and puffy. If you were thinking about caviar this might be a good time to get one! When I saw the exact same model six months ago t was so plasticky I passed on it. Totally different leather despite the same model!
     
  11. Congratulations. That's very beautiful and puffy caviar.
     
  12. Congrats it's beautiful! I purchased same combo but in jumbo size in 2014 and I lucked out as well. Mine is shiny, puffy and the a true deep black. I absolutely love mine. Enjoy!!
     
  13. Congratulations on your beautiful new bag!
     
  14. Congratulation! Your caviar look so beautiful! Puffy and shiny:heart::smile:
     
  15. Awesome looking CF!! Glad you got what you want after the wait!
