I don't have any local stores where I can look at the real darling thing, so after a whole day of research on colors,size etc, I decided to go with the Sienna at Diabro.net. The pictures postes here show really nice leather, smoosh, rich and thich leather. That's what I want! THe shopping experience itself is not bad. Shipping was fast for only 4 days. Today I picked up the bag from local USPS. I was like Uh-uh when I took the bag out of the box. The color is OK and the shape and size works perfectly for me. But, the leather! The leather looks very veiny and dry. The leather at the corner feels even drier. This is a brand new bag and I'm not so sure how it would stand the use if the leather is not as thick as I imagined. I'll post some pictures later and you experts please tell me was I overeacting or was I really unlucky to get one with mediocre leather? Since this is an oversear purchase and my very first Bbag, I don't plan to return it. Is there anyway I can fix it up a little so the leather doens't looks/feels so dry?
