I have that bag....the 2005 original Kansas in black deerskin....same one as Lindsay's. Treasure it to death. I love the deerskin texture; sadly the 2006 and 2007 bags no longer use deerskin. I think this is one bag that I definitely won't be selling. My only complaint is around the handle part, where it attaches to the body of the bag, with age/wear there is a little bit of peeling....I've read that others have noticed this as well (in threads way back).....this I think is a problem that can be fixed by any good leather goods shop though. The later versions (2006 & 2007) of the Kansas all have the silver metal part in the handle which I guess circumvents that peeling problem; but shape/structure/design/leather-wise and overall, the 2005 Kansas is still the best of the best IMO.

the phone # for that saks is 240.497.5355 - the SA who helped me was Laura. no one was looking at the lanvins at that saks (suckers!) so im sure they are still there. they also had a couple of heros in pewter and heroines in black leather.
thanks so much..... brown suede will be perfect.....

Just scroll back to the start of this thread to re-live the drama undergone by some of our members to get the original Kansas

i'm not one for metallic bags, but the kentucky in metallic is to-die-for!

i love it because it's the perfect in-between shade of silver and gold.

lookers, I have seen that bag in brown/black on sale but I reckon since its a new colour than maybe Harvey Nics or Harrods in London might stock it soon as they had the older colours.
