BlairWarner Congrats on your BL! I hope you enjoy the color as much as I do . If you're looking for a new wallet I think you should definitely get the money wallet.

Here's a picture of an authentic gray rocco. Pic from TPF.
Catty's seems a little lighter compared to the gray authentic AW rocco in the picture?

catty's looks awful, it look like plaster dried and cracked on that bag..... i love the grey one but it seems like it wouldbe a difficult color to rep, it has a "lavender" tint to it

Bagaliscious, BBS and others...

Thanks so much for your words of encouragement. I really do love the work, I just have to get used to the fact that it's not jet black coal as I expected.

The boys responded that yes, they were sure they sent me a black and not an anthra.

I have to say though. I can't get over the fact that it really DOES sparkle. I've checked it out with a magnifying glass and it's not just light reflection. There appear to be microglitter bits embedded in the leather.

Hope everyone has a great weekend. I've been carrying my neverfull and really love it.

Thanks! I am going to email Jacky and Catty as well. Cross fingers....

Catty got back to me and told me that the bag in black was available, and sent me a picture... It looks rather off to me. I hope Jacky can make a better version in more colors.

Picture from Catty.

I hope Catty's chloe gemma has the rings on the side for the strap?

Yeah.... Catty's Gemma proportion is a little bit off, handles are too long, not to mention missed the shoulder strap.

I think Catty's is the large size, which doesn't have a shoulder strap and larger handles so you can fit it over your shoulder. I definitely prefer the medium size.

uh...yeah, catty's gemma is very off to say the least.

smkelly - i have a black day with GSH that could probably pass for anthra. it has been a lighter black since day 1. my anthra club was shipped my parents house because i spent almost a month there over the holidays and assummed the bag would get to me since it was mailed in early december. it didn't, but i'll be visiting my family again in march so i'll pick it up then. my mother definitely called it black over the phone, so i am guessing my black day GSH and anthra club will be similar. that said, the day was made far before the boys even attempted anthra (i bought this bag in february of 2008), so some black bags must come out lighter than others.

i would also love a thick, matte city, but it's so up-in-the-air as to what leather i'll get, so i just sit tight for bagswap.

Amyiish- I'm very interested in the Chloe Gemma in the khaki color! Let's all cross our fingers that Jacky will be making the medium size and in different colors! Thanks for introducing me to the bag. I didn't know it existed.
