Hi all! I just wanted to post a couple pictures showing the differences between the 05 leather and 07 pre F/W leather since many people have been comparing the leathers. Maybe the pics will also serve as reference for comparing how close Black and Plomb really are. I love both of these bags so much, the leather is incredible! The Black's leather used to be so palpably wrinkled and thick, but over the years, it's slowly becoming very smooth to the touch. I can hardly discern the wrinkles anymore, and it certainly feels thinner. It's also become very broken down and very floppy. I LOVE the way it is! The Plomb's leather is so thick and distressed, but not veiny at all. I'm searching for more bags from this season that are the same, but I'm having a really hard time! I hope you enjoy these pictures!
