between the new red and the old, and whats up with the soft epi leather? Can someone help?
New red is a brighter and w/ some bags it's more flexible. Also w/ the older red, there edges of the epi was lined in black whereas the newer red, it's a matching red color.
is the hardware gold or silver with the new red?
I posted this same question several weeks ago. Here is the link.
You can get new red with gold and silver. The new bags are now with silver hardware, but the new red has been around a few years, so they previously came with the gold hardware. I have a new red epi speedy from 2004 with the gold hardware.
