Yes, when I get a chance to take the photos with my cell phone and learn to post - I will definitely post the photos!
Thank goodness I haven't run into the quality issues that these newer bags are experiencing. I think they are isolated incidents or else we'd have a lot of people on here complaining... but thank goodness its only a few!
The one advantage you'll have Em, is that you'll be there personally to Inspect your bag inside and out!! No loose stitches or nicks in the leather!! You'll be able to go over the bags with a fine tooth comb! I think you'll be fine! We just need to see if your Black comes w/ red interior!!
