The Grey One Arrived - Croco Embossed Satchel!

A210122 - I got this in the black (gorgeous!) and waitlisted it in the grey. I have checked the website for weeks and no grey. The doorbell rang last night and it was my grey bag!!!!! I couldn't believe it. This thing is beyond gorgeous in the grsy ladies. Do you think it's a return? It still isn't in stock.

Question: How can I "polish" the smooth flap on this satchel - the part at the top where the magnetic closure is located? I'm getting some minor scratches on mine there.

What a wonderful surprise for you E!! The grey croc is gorgeous and I love the look/shape of this Satchel! (the 1975 print in taupe is at the top of my wishlist). From personal experience I think you can rub out any scratchel that appear on the sierra leather flap. I would get a nice leather lotion and apply a dab then run any scratches out. This should workWink Enjoy your gorgeous new bag!

E, enjoy your new beauty....I'm so tempted to order the saddle brown one, I'm continually watching the video and reading the excellent reviews!{#emotions_dlg.thumbup1}

Congrats on your gray one. That's on my wishlist. I got saddle first, love it & now just ordered black since I haven't seen it for awhile. Can't wait to get my 2nd one.

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy {#emotions_dlg.thumbup}

T, could you please describe the Saddle shade? The video is no help--is it dark brown with beige veining?? I think so, but the presentation I saw was the one where they totally mixed up the brown shades.

TIA!

Stunning looking bag OP! Enjoy!

I recommend you get & use one of the Instant Shine Sponges you

find at places like Footlocker, Reebok, Nike & where sneaker & shoes

are sold.

I use it on my leather goods & no harm has ever come to them.

OOPS! almost forgot....I DO NOT use the sponge on my glove leather handbags.

CS,

The saddle is not tmoro brown but a good shade of medium brown almost cognac like this link with white/beige veins. I remember the black one is very black almost tmoro or black with red veins.

Hope this helps. Haven't used it yet since it's still in the 80-90 F in Southern California. Hope to use it next month & the leather smells delicious {#emotions_dlg.tt1}
