I'm sorry it didn't work out, but agree that the black w/gold isn't as nice as the solid gold. So disappointing, I wish they would re-release the original blondie/boston collection. This time I know we wouldn't miss out!

I wouldn't give up on finding the white one if you really want it. Like I said, they had it at the outlet for a short period. I wouldn't be surprised if one popped up on Yoox.
Yes, that's the Boston, but w/horse bits. They had it in Green, black and brown F/W 2004. I have it in Green, but I almost drove the SA crazy trying to decide!

so I actually got my hands on a black bowling bag with the gold GGs. and to make things more confusing, the box says "borsa blondie."

perhaps Blondie is the name of this "family" of bags with the large GGs...

hmm, perhaps. and I just noticed on the other side of the box that this bag is officially called the bowling bag, which makes more sense than the boston. I wonder why we started calling it the boston in the first place?

I looove all these bags, although I do prefer the big G over the horsebit. Last time I was in Bergdorf Goodman's, this purple one was on sale, too bad it is way out of my price range even while discounted.


This black one on eBay is like my dream bag.

^^ DP-- I swear that horsebit is no where to be found. I asked the SA down in Miami and he said they are virtually impossible to come by now... The leather large horsebits are gorgeous though and the leather is so supple!

Be careful - I think some of the bowling bags on ebay are fake. If you do a google search for gucci bowling bag, a lot of fakes come up.

Yeah, the only way we'd find one is if someone sold theirs--which will never happen! I heard they're going to have a monogram large horsebit with orange leather trim in the fall 2005 collection. It sounds kinda cute, I cant wait to see it! The leather is nice.....but is it me, or are the horsebits on the recent leather versions a little smaller than the previous ones?? Its just that when I tried on the bag during the winter season, the horsebit seemed HUGE. Then when I tried on the leather ones from the batch that came out a couple months ago, it seemed more fitting on my shoulder--and I thought the horsebit seemed slightly smaller. I could be over-analyzing. I wouldnt mind having a monogram, but my friend already has one.

Hi Intrigue, I got the medium one yesterday. It's great! I've been carrying it over my arm, since using it as a shoulder bag feels quite uncomfortable. I was also pleasently surprised that it's quite roomy inside. There's enough space for all my daily essentials: ipod, camera, wallet, pda, phone, makeup.... and still holds its shape nicely. I believe these boston bags are slightly wider than the blondie ones.
