I recently sold my Black Day. I had purchased it through aloharag and I just never fell in love with the leather. It wasn't as soft and smooth as I wanted it. Now I am thinking about buying another Day bag. This time, I plan on buying it at NM so I can pick out the best one to my liking. I'm not sure if I will stick with black or see what other colors they have in stock. What about you? Have you ever done something like this?
