In the Chicago BV store today, the SA showed me the new Ball bag. Rather than the leather being continuous from the body to the handle, the new ones have rings with a leather strip for the shoulder strap--it's probably 2-3 thicknesses of leather and very comfortable. It just looks odd after seeing the other design for so long. The interior is different too--not divided like it was; there's a removable zipped section and when you pull it out, the interior is open. The toggle baguette is slightly larger now too (along with a higher price (about $750).
