I got my D-bag Bauletto in yellow about 3 - 4 months ago and I've been using it every now and then, although not that daily (especially when it rains, I see to it that I won't use it to prevent water stains). It still holds up well. I use some organizers inside my bag, to keep my stuff neat in such a roomy interior. It's such a functional bag, and a head-turner at that. It's not like the usual logo purses "shouting", but with its superior quality, people in the know, will notice! As to its maintenance, when it gets some small spots at certain areas, I try to clean it with damp cloth. It darkens as it gets wet, I'll just let it air dry, and it goes back to its original clean look. I haven't tried using leather conditioner or waterproofing cream in any of my bags.
