Mine is perfect. I sprayed it with Apple Guard and I keep the handles conditioned with Apple Conditioner so they don't absorb, then I also spray them frequently with Apple Guard since it does wear off. If you are carrying a light bag everyday, if you spray it at least once a month with Apple Guard it won't get dirty. If it does get a little dirty on the corners it usually wipes right off and doesn't sink into the leather.
you'll love it! I got mine a couple of days ago.. and its gorgeous!I am about to order my VD and now am little worried, although I know lighter bags are harder to maintain, I guess I will just have to condition, condition, condition & spray, spray, spray!!
