Okay -- it looks like I'm going to have to get a black b bag. And it's going to come down to finding the right combination of style and hardware color. I've seen Firsts and Cities IRL with pewter hardware, and they look great. Very rocker, and the First is very elegant. Was there a Twiggy with pewter hardware? Does someone have a picture of one? But the brass hardware is easier to come by, obviously. Thoughts? Can someone who has 2 black bags, one with pewter and one with brass, throw in her/his 2 cents? What are the pros and cons, and which would you definitely get again if you could? TIA!
