black City RH and leather texture

  1. Hey everyone! I'm new and I need help)
    I'm determined to purchase my first Balenciaga bag next Wednesday when I get paid (I can't wait any longer!). I decided to go with a black City (RH) because it's such a great basic bag that already became a classic.
    I will not be able to make a trip to a store and handpick my bag myself, so I have to order either online or by phone/fax. However I have particular preference about leather texture: I want it to be thick and silky, not dry or veiny. Where should I order from? I don't necessarily want a picture of my bag, I just want someone trustworthy to examine all the bags they have in stock and pick the one that matches my description the best. Where should I order from? Aloha Rag? BalNY? Any particular NM or Barneys?
    Thank you so much!
  2. I don't know the current BalNY stock, but my SA there, Kim, has picked out some wonderful bags for other tPF members. She's someone whom I would trust to pick out a bag to your specifications. :yes:
  3. The Black RH Cities at Aloha Rag are dry and distressed, according to one of their SAs... Good luck with your hunt!
