I just got, yep, another whiskey Ali slim flap, 10327 that I had given up last year in regret. It seems to me to be a very different texture to me and smooth with less variation in color than last years. I was missing mine so much and I saw a Coach SA with hers , it had turned a dark brown with a wonderful patina. I do not think I like this smooth, dark, version of this bag and its' orangey dark color. It is like this years whiskey flap. I had so hoped these were last years bags. I do not know what to do. This is a small store I used and when you return there, they are just not so happy, for it takes away from the total of the day. I understand that, but this is just not what I expected in smooth and smooshy whiskey like last year's. Anyone have this experience...Thanks!!!
