The little leather piece on the zipper of my Nightingale came off today. Does anyone know how I can fix it or where I can go to get it fixed? I spent half an hour trying to reattach but it just wouldn't stick. I'm in New York.. do you think if I go to Barneys they'd be able to fix it?

^ the actual leather piece doesn't seem to be broken. The ring is though.

the lining thing is a very confusing subject.
most of the current season bags still do have the calico lining.

ex tfs member brian & i are working on a blog for nightingales & givenchy bags (similar to what ateliernaff had for balenciaga).

Are you guys really?? That is so cool... almost like the bag has a 'cult' following.

And why is Brian an 'ex' member? I enjoyed his posts.

yeah! i would say that it does...

barneys finally has that new a/w 07 campaign bag. they're calling it the "overnight". it's 19x13" and $1750 with the chain handle. the one with the rolled handle is either going to be less, or more (i'm thinking more--1795?)

my first edition maxi had a light gray lining. my black distressed patent maxi has a black lining, the following season. and love it! this season's linings vary... my next maxi has a cream lining, i think. p.s. i only support authentic goods.

ale, tell brian chauss says hey.

the different linings are really confusing which is why I thought I would ask especially since I've seen authentic nightingales with different colored linings, as people have been confirming. IMO it also makes counterfeiting that much easier.

ooooooh! RAD! cant wait to se that, im sure it'll be very helpful to a lot of people....and it seems like givenchy bags aren't as popular as others, like b-bags, so no-one has done it yet...

BTW~ what ever happened to brian? he used to crack me up. i loved his posts too!

did the ring just come open or is it actually broken?
i know you can buy rings like that at craft or jewelry supply stores...just buy a replacement one and clamp it down with some pliers.
if the original one just came open ,you can close it again with a pair of pliers.
