Oh if you don't want to go through the replacement hassle...sell and a get a new bag to carry for the next few years. I like dark vachetta, but only so dark myself. Yours are not horrible, just a bit dark.

If its too dark for you, I'm sure you could get alot for it on ebay.. And use those funds to go towards a new speedy !

i think just sell it and get a new one if u dun like the patina

when u get a new piece...u gotta baby it again

n when the new piece gets old...u gonna sell it for a new piece again

then again...if u can bear with patina...i am sure u will be happy with it for many years to come...n u dun have to keep on changing to a new bag every now n then...

even if u sell it...i wonder will it fetch a good price?! oh well...might as well stick with the old...but then again..its up to u...sorry..of no help here...for me...i think my bag bears what i have been through...so...it has a bit of history with all the stains n whatever...so...i am still loving it not for the looks...but for what the bag has been through with me :smile:

My handles are similar to yours - but I plan to keep it for a veryyyyy long time!

and I agree w/ dollipop in that you would have to get a new speedy every couple years if you are afraid of the darkened leather

I like dark patina! I love bags once they are broken in!!! But if it's really bothering you then just realize, like others have said, you'll have to keep replacing it once it darkens again. It would be an on-going cycle for you.
