That isn't the messenger that I have, and the horn looks a bit off, and the leather a bit too smooth, but that could be another messenger.

The Nordstroms store in downtown Seattle had several YSL Mombasa bags with the horn/silver handle in (texturized, not smooth,) Black and dark Brown leather on display as of today when I was there.

Downtown Seattle (#1)
500 Pine Street
Seattle, WA 98101
(206) 628-2111

I seem to be unable to find a picture of an authentic one online.

btw, thanks for the tip. cuz even though YSL still considers this a current style (why wouldn't they?), the department stores are treating them like they've been discontinued so I've had a hard time tracking one down. luckily they had a shinier one, which I prefer to the matte. and I answered my own question. there are 3 sizes: the big one like Nicole's, the smaller east/west one I posted and a very small handbag.

bluefly is authentic, right?

right now i have 4 mombasas:
a large black mombasa with natural horn handle
a large brown mombasa with natural horn handle
a medium white mombasa with gold hardware and white bleached horn
a small black velvet mombasa with silver crystal encrusted horn

i would love to get another black one, since i use them so much, i really have always loved the very structured version from F/W '02 and regret not getting it. so i think i might get it, if i remember correctly its pretty big

Does anyone know where I can still get a black leather mombasa with an antelope/horn handle? I have the brown and would love the black as well. Thanks!
