I don't see a need for rudeness. Kimair was just reporting back what she was told.

just to clarify i guess..the boston came in the black with green/red stripe (like nicky hilton's), white with blue and red stripe (like paris's), black with silver GG, and black with pink GG...
the blonde came in black with silver GG, green with silver GG, black with red and green stripe... and there may have been more

if you guys live in the bay, the SAs at the santana row gucci boutique are supernice... i'm sure they'd have more info

I have that boston but with the red and green stripe.



Friggin fantastic bag. It was my first foray into the world of handbags.

I love that white that was posted. I called Gucci here in Toronto and they have neither that one nor the black with pink in stock right now. They're doing a search for me to see if either can be found. If for some reason two turn up, i'll post here and maybe they can ship? I say two because if they find one of the white, i'm gonna buy it heh.

i was looking for the large white boston towards the end of last season, and they TOTALLY SOLD OUT. If anyone locates where to still get the bag, i'd appreciate it! (i have the blonde with green/red stripe - and i love it)

Actually, they had that bag on Saks.com well into February, it didn't sell out THAT quick, it was around for awhile.

Can you tell me how many metal feet are there in the large boston bag? My friend has the purse with 5 metal feet ( 4 metal feet on each side and 1 metal foot on the center)and while we were strolling at south coast plaza last week we saw a girl toting the black version w/ red and green stripes w/ 4 metal feet on the bottom. Thanks.

I hope the pic shows up okay, it's a scan from a magazine. Thanks for any help!
Gucci has brought back this bag and has limited quantities at a few stores! It has only one small variation- the GG's are in black enamel lined in gold, instead of being in solid gold. Otherwise, the shape of the bag and the GGs are identical. I wish I could find a pic, but when I buy it, I'll post.
