I'm killing time waiting to see if my lovely paddy goes on sale at NAP........which is giving me more time to obsess....and stress......according to NAP the bag I like is from SS07. And, I've seen the odd post saying that the 07 leather is not good, that it's stiff and shiney??? NAP say "We can advise that the same leather is used for most Paddingtons and whilst there may be slight differences from season to season, these are barely noticeable." Does anyone own an 07 and is the leather as smooshy and pebbly as the older ones? Can I ask NAP to pick one like that, will they do that??? If it's not as good what are my other choices, online, to buy an 06 black (with white stitching) paddy that is definitely authentic???
