those gold symbols are really ghetto looking in person. sometimes they're applied crookedly. it looks cheap

^^I agree. I like the fact that the old bag was understated and simple.

agreed, i went to barneys to buy large white patent. very unhappy with lack of zipper anf thinner strap... ;( so, no go.

agreed with you all... gold GGs. blech, very mass market and crappy quality. btw, dont like the new short handles either with gold hardware...

however, i was able to score an all black distressed leather maxi 'gale with black ostrich handles and FABULOUS original thick S &M strap with zipper!!! and black interior. my first maxi 'gale in black leather had a gray lining... my black patent has a black lining too. yeah, i need another black maxi ... (sarcastic) but the leather was too amazing to pass up. i was able to get it bc it was "out" for a photoshoot and had just returned... no discount, of course!!! and i am so sad to tell you the newer ones with a thin shoulder strap, no zipper and/or gold GG just lack the original drama... so, i went with yet another black original maxi... hey, one cant have too much black, d'accord?

The gold logo is tacky, but the new way that they attaching the handle (and the longer handle length) is just horrendous.

lol. and i think they lowered the quality to mass produce bc the new ones are also a few dollars cheaper than my original ones... btw, my new black ostrich handle maxi 'gale thick zipper strap has the word givency stamped in black on it, my other 2 maxis dont.... maybe for the exotics?

^I do not know if it is material specific, but I do remember that the very originals did have that.

oh chauss i think the maxi nightingale with ostrich handles and original wide strap (w/ zipper) you just got is the one i have too i had to hunt it down like a madwoman (a few months back). it's the one where the ostrich handles have this metallic sheen to it. the hardware is a gunmetal almost blackish color. and the distressed leather is very thomas wylde-ish, right? and iirc barneys retail was $1,995 pre-tax. oh i hope that's the one you got. i had to get my s.a. to hunt that one down and at the time she said computers showed it was the last one in the company....but glad you got one! it seriously has the best leather ever. the leather softens up even more with use and the draping is just incredible my only gripe is it's a bit on the heavy side but i still love it to death.

yes!!!!!!!!!!!!! hey, anything is heavy next to a bal bag! and i wasnt looking for this! i have a maxi in black distressed patent...but the leather was too amazing to pass it up next to the quality of the new ones. sooo disappointing.... i was told mine was checked out for a photoshoot and it just came back 2 days ago... i really wanted the white patent but it was made so cheaply compared to my black patent which also has the thick zipper strap...the one inch shoulder strap, sans zipper is just blech.

chauss,
congrats and would looooove to see pics

i agree about the original. i wish i had gotten one... oh well
on another note CORSO COMO had a beautiful (stunning) natural distressed (washed) leather maxi in what seems the original style (but it was new season)
i was in such a rush that i only picked it up and didnt even get a chance to consider acquiring
