P.S. I'm contemplating the ink city. Just emailed Aloha Rag. (Okay - now I'm not completely off topic)
That is wonderful news Jan - I'm so very pleased for you and your family.

Okay, who was recently talking about getting a Compagnon wallet? Remember we were talking about whether it was currently a zip-around style or had a flap on one side? My theory was that the flap style was discontinued and that it was now a zip-around. Here's an example from eBay (5458517692):

But... here's another example from eBay (6836886096) that definitely looks like it has a flap:

On the other hand, the red one could very well be fake - the hardware is kind of off-putting.

I'm still confused, though, because I know the zip-around I looked at recently opened like a book to lie flat, and it doesn't look like the olive one above does that.

Both of the wallets are fake, Louisey. I have the authentic wallet, and it's completely different. The zip-around feature is standard, you're right, but there aren't any "dividers" in the wallet. When it unzips, it just opens flat with the credit card slots on one side and the zipper pouch on the other. The money compartments are BEHIND the credit card slots and the zipper pouch.

I was walking about in Hong Kong the other day, and I saw an encre/ink city in the store of this second hand shop (chain store) that's really popular. It wasn't black, but it was more of a dark dark dark navy/purple color. The leather was more or less like that ebay auction you listed.

I went into the store and they had a bunch of used/new bbags. I placed a newer bag next to an old magenta and the difference was amazing. I think I'm a bigger fan of the older softer leather, so I guess I'll just have to sit on my hands and wait until a good ebay auction comes by.

I saw a used mustard city for sale for approx $800 USD... I was sort of tempted to get that.

ps. I'll be going to Shenzhen sometime soon, to get a couple clothes tailor made (it's so amazingly cheap), I'll make sure to stop by the land of the fakes to see what fake bbags they're up to. So far, there hasn't been much- and the ones that are fake are really obvious. But don't fall for the ones that are amazingly crafted! I've been honing my skills on ebay- looking at leather only isn't a good way to detect a fake. I've seen so many fakes with really amazingly leather but missing a detail somewhere.

.. sorry this is a lengthy post. I just got excited that this forum is back on!
