Hi! I am new to Balenciaga and I just bought myself a messenger (I'm a guy) on eBay but the problem is I don't know which color I like the best?

Can someone please tell me what is the name of this model?

From which season is the bag from? (Both Olive and Aqua)

What is the retail of the bag?

I think this bag is more often called a men's day (to be distinguished from the flat messenger). It is a current style and has been around for a while, I think. You should be able to get more info in the bal. reference section.

personally, i prefer the olive - it's from 05 and the leather is thicker and the color saturation is a lot richer. it is called the men's Day or messenger - the FLAT messenger is a different bag. sorry, i don't remember what it retailed for :confused1:

hi, i just got your PM. personally, i would pick the teal (aqua) simply because the olive is closely similar to my taupe. but you can't go wrong with either colour. congrats!

Hi Flyingkid, I've a men's day thats very similar to the blue. Its a tealish blue. And my paper tag says 2006 1 which means its from Spring 06.
The Olive looks abit dark so i'm not sure, it may be Vert Fonce from Fall 07. But if its Olive, then its from Fall 05.
The leather from 05 are generally considered the best so far.
So congrats on your choice and enjoy! :tup:
