I've had felt the 2005 leather in person and it is truly TDF!! and the color of course is in perfection and so yummy.

I have not, however, had the luck to see or feel a 2009 in person, the pictures of the black from this forum is amazing though.

Would you think the leather could be compared and if so, which one would you prefer more?

price wise the gentle-used-couple-times 2005 is going above retail (I have been stalking them...) and for 2009 I could just go to their official website and order one...

love to hear your options.

Thanks in advance!

No way, I would get a 05 but it all depends if the bag is in good condition or not & leather of course. Can you post pics?

i have both (05 black day and 09 black gsh work). go for the 05!

i was actually thinking about making a thread comparing 05 black and 09 black. i'll do that a little later today. :smile:
 
I have an '05 black WE and an '09 black PT. The '09 leather is nice enough, but it has little character...and I also prefer goat to lamb. But I would not buy an '05 bag if its condition was not at least excellent. I lucked out and found a new '05 WE...maybe you'll get lucky too!

Also, be on the lookout for '07 black. Also divine!

If you have a line on a '05 then buy it! If not and you don't want to wait: buy the '09 then sell it whenever your '05 comes along. :flowers:

2005. I have a 2005 City and a 2009 black MU. The difference between the two leathers is night and day. The 05 is a richer black and the leather is to die for.

Nice comparison pics Laura, thank you for sharing!

I have a 05 black city and now having a 09 black city on the way to me. I will post comparison pics when I get the new one. But I would say I would still love my 05 the best...
