So I have been wanting a black city for a while and I got a call this morning that my SA had 3 black city's to choose from!! I was excited, but as I had expected, they were all very shiny and veiny. One wasn't so veiny but had quite a bit of shine. She said the shine goes away with use. I really wanted a nice thick smooshy deep rich black bag, these bags lately are anything but that. So, my questions are: - should I wait until the leathers improve? - will the shininess really go away? - is there a way to make a not so great leathered bag the way you want it to look? Any advice/help is so appreciated!
