If I only knew YSL would issue the downtown in black patent quilted mock-croc(w/o pockets), I would've waited on buying one until it is available. I would've saved money but ended up with the look I was after. It's the shape of the downtown but the look of the equally much coveted large quilted mock-croc Tribute. Having said that, I own a large quilted mock-croc Tribute and the medium black patent Downtown with 2 outer pockets. The Downtown is a great everyday bag, rain or shine, no worries on wear and tear at all. Hope that helps.

I have the medium - it's a great size, but I think the large is a great statement piece, when I have seen people with one it's a real "Wow!"

I think that any type of leather is great - the navy patent is amazing, the white buffalo is so classy. I like the black buffalo too, it looks stunning with the gold hardware.

What goes best with your wardrobe?

& can u tell me what are all the diffrenet colors / skin type /sizes / pockects or without ????? availble for downtown????

You might want to stop by your nearest YSL boutique. Any SA would be happy to pull their downtowns off the shelf and explain the inherent characteristics of different leathers, color availability, and sizing concerns. If you are unable to visit them, check out the YSL website for visual reference of the bags, then call the number of the major boutiques listed there.
