Hi! I'm new to tPF and trying to find out as much as I can about Bbags--my new obsession! I have two now and I'm looking for my first "first" and hoping I can get some advice about leather. I've read in a lot of threads about bags with better leather or more consistant leather. Can someone explain to me what the ideal leather looks and feels like when it's new? My two bags are slightly different ... one has broken in to be really smooth while the other is fairly veiny, but not yet as broken in. I've been to the Barneys in BH and seen several bags that I'm interested in, but they're all slightly different and I'm trying to decide which one to get. Sorry for the long post, but any help would be greatly appreciated!
