I know many pf'ers have mentioned that the 08 Magentas have pretty uneven leather. I have a gsh money in magenta and didn't think it was too bad, perhaps because it was on a wallet. I went to NM Newport today and totally saw the difference today. They had a flat wristlet gsh clutch and that leather compared to the city and first was incredible. They looked like two different colors. The clutch looked pinker and the city/first looked purple. I so want a first with good leather but am considering the flat clutch because the leather looked so much better. The SA even stated it was a bad batch. Is there such a thing?
