Black GSH Money.jpg

Bought the Black GSH Money from T&D rather recently. When it first came, must say, I wasn't impressed with the leather. It was really quite dry. After moisturizing with Apple leather care conditioner, the condition was a little better. But after some weeks, it went back to its dry condition. Am now a little sick of conditioning it on a frequent basis, so decided to use it as a passport holder.

For those who bought the above style from T&D, what's your situation like? Now wondering if I should buy the same style in another colour or just splurge on another bag!

I have one (troy) and its great..no problems at all. But it STUNK when it arrived..like no other bag before it It has lustre and a satin sheen, it looks just like the authentics I saw at Bergdorfs..You should get the LMB's "shine restore" it sounds like you need this more than more apple leather conditioner. go to LMB's website and read up on it.

Now it will all come down to what colors T&D make.
I am going to send the colors that are made in the velo to T&D so they can see what there choices are...this way we eliminate the frankenvelo..ok chaps?
Done- Just sent the color selection to T&D that the velo comes in.
Yes, Coco, THANK YOU! I've been researching the Velo too, and I'd love one in light olive with RH.

Bagalicious, LOVE your new avatar!

And hi all,

OK, so after carrying Joan around for a few weeks and adding a JC London phone booth charm, here are her latest pics. Sorry for the not-so-great quality. I don't know how to do EXTREMECLOSEUP (ode to Wayne and Garth) on it. bummer.

Anyway, other than her "dye-burn" of peeling leather (many more "bits" than the arrows are pointing to, but you get the point), she's just fine. No color transfer, no fading.

I'm amazed that the dye soaked right in to the rubber leather edging finish as beautifully as it did. I was expecting to have to re-edge everything!

Also, I know I'll have to retouch the zipper fabric and the stitching, although you can only see the barest hint of aqua if you look up close. Too close for anyone but a tfs sista to get!

Happy springtime holidays to all.

Will the velo in outremer be available in their ioffer store or is it special order only? And how long does it take for them to complete usually?

baga - 53...35...age is just a number! it's all in one's attitude

blair warner - you should ask jacky to send you the correct D-rings with your next order and take it to the cobbler to change them. but like you, i wouldn't be able to carry it if my friends had the auth. such a shame on jacky's oversight that the med and large ones don't have the same d-rings. as kimair said - it would have been so easy to get those right from the beginning. or maybe you might just want to get another black one - i think overall the bag is totally spot on. the leather on mine has really broken in now and it slouches so nicely. also, i think black is the safest color.

babybluestar i get where you're comin from.. i thought i would get a certain shade of amethyst and didn't like the purpley result. thankfully for me i would love a sorbet in either the washed out color or the more vibrant one oh and i took 4 years of french and noix should be pronounced like trois i believe

katinboots if you want to just stare at it maybe you can just get a sorbet bracelet? it's not as big as a bag but if you like the color you can add it to your wrist haha
