Your opinion is great appreciated! Gris Mouette/Etain/Etoupe

  1. I think you should keep both as well they are different and there's room in a collection for both.
     
  2. Is this the lighting? It looks much lighter than mine. By a lot

  3. It does look light for etain but étoupe has Naturel contrast stitching.

  5. I know! I'd never seen Etain in person before I got mine. But judging by the pictures and descriptions on the forum I expected it to be much darker. Mine also has a green cast like sage in certain lights. Matter of fact under the lights in FSH I thought it was sage. Can the difference be due to the different leather? I dunno. Just wacky isn't it?
     
  6. Congrats !! Please do a reveal when you've time !!
     
  7. Can I get you post some more photos in different lighting? So interesting.
     
  8. Wow this looks really light, almost like craie on my screen.

  10. Congrats PbP !! This Etain is lighter than the one that I have seen from the first issue. I had a Bolide 35 in that color and it was much darker than yours. Yours is just right.
     
  11. Yours is much lighter than the Bolide 35 that i had when the color was issued. Congrats on this beauty.
     
  12. What a lovely contrast !! GHW is perfect for Etain. Enjoy her in good health.

  13. Thank you. That photo was taken indoors by a window with sunlight. It appears lighter than it is.

    Here it is with GT and black in dimmer light IMG_1492590240.217169.jpg
     
  14. Following this thread with interest-My very first bag was an etoupe B35 with ghw and I've added the same spec in gold so have my cool & warm neutrals covered but I have a love for etain with ghw after getting a CDC but do we think this is a redundant next bag given my etoupe? I'm finding quite a few black outfits where I don't like these 2 B's with them and thinking I need to add either a black or etain B for work clothes or I might just get a black bolide and come down the radar a bit for work?

    Here is my Etain clemence Evie. Definitely a dark cool colour, not much brown in it, but certainly a dark grey with a greenish tinge.
