I think I'm making the switch from cities to classiques, but my 04 black city with pewter has the most amazing leather out of all the hundreds of Bbags I've felt. It's smooth, matt, mooshy, almost clammy is so amazing. And I've heard others who own 04 black cities say the same. Just like marron 04 cities have a different feel of leather to the twiggies/classiques. And the FB caramel/tobacco feels very different than the FB chocolate. So how would you describe the leather of an 03/04 black classique? SHould I make the switch? Thanks!
