Hi everyone,
Have a question about how your black hardware has held up, especially from previous years. On an impulse you know how that goes ;) ---bought a black on black reissue from BG last week and didn't scrutinize the tag---it arrived today and is from the 15A season. It looks to be a glazed calfskin leather, but also with black shiny hardware. If anyone has any input also on the glazed leather durability, that would also be helpful, though I'm most concerned about the hardware. Love the bag and would like to keep it, but my Ruthenium hardware on a classic flap from 2013/14 or so is also peeling... and this gives me pause for this bag, as gorgeous as it is.
Thanks!
