I don't know if I'm the only one, but little details like this kind of make it or break it for me. When I looked at some of the SS07 colours in real life at Neiman Marcus, I was surprised at how much the paint on the piping (or whatever it's called - the edge of the leather) didn't match that well with the leather itself - this was the case with the Vert Gazons I saw. The paint looked darker than the leather and didn't blend in well - it looked plasticky and cheap. I've seen this on lots of other bbags on eBay as well. I'm looking for the perfect Ink City and saw one on eBay the other day - but the paint on the piping looked so different from the colour of the bag, that I couldn't commit to buying it. This may be the case with all Inks, I don't know. The bbags I own are 05 white, 05 calcaire and 06 rouge vif, and none of them have this problem. Anyone else annoyed by this? I can't be the only one!
