I just received an Argent Paddington from NAP this afternoon. I am loving how subdued the metallic color is, and I think the bag is absolutely GORGEOUS!!! My one concern is about all of the reports of "rubbing" I have read about on the forums. I am just wondering if anyone could provide me with some guidance on what to do. I am very gentle with my purses, but I am worried that I will accidentally bang it into something (also about the lock pressing against the leather!). I read that the 07 metallics were a little bit better about the finish not rubbing off as much. Any truth to this? I love the bag, but I don't want to have to keep it locked away to keep it in a decent condition. Thanks, as always!
