Couldn't find a thread where the preferences are discussed and whether the differences in brown shades bother other ebene lovers. It's hard to take a pic but IRL it's super noticeable- even my not-so-connoisseur friends think it's extreme. on the left is my old speedy which is from April 2016 and in the middle is the replacement one from December 2016. I definitely prefer the color of the new speedy. What about you? Not only is the color different but also the canvas is a lot thicker on the newer one as one can see on the pic how the opening is sagging down on my old speedy ( which was like that already when she was new). Does anyone else check several bags because of these variations? I have quite a few ebene bags but the thickness of my old speedy really bothered me and so I decided to go in and check out some of the other speedies and was amazed at the variations. What do you think?
