    I've got a 08 f/w black city and it's not black. It's more like plombish or greyish.
    Ypu can see it here:

    I've seen very few jetblack 08 f/W bags, obviously that doesnt mean they doesn't exist. My bags has quite good leather but it scruffs VERY easily. And the dye seems to have left one of the handles, it is fairly lighter than the other.
    I would buy a 09 black city instead. I've only heard good things about that leather. You could take a look at this thread http://forum.purseblog.com/balenciaga/impressed-with-09-black-403795.html
     
  3. I have 2 '08 black city bags......they're black, IMO. I saw '09 black at my Neiman Marcus and I was not impressed. It could've been their batch, but they were not jet black. The leather looked dry and it definitely was not jet black.
     
  4. black is great on 08
     
  5. IMO, 08 IS NOT A GOOD YEAR FOR BLACK. 07 IS TERRIFIC AND WHAT I'VE SEEN OF THE 09'S AT NEIMAN'S, THE BLACK IS VERY SATURATED. NOT AS SHINEY AS MY 07, BUT IF YOU WANT BLACK, I WOULD GET THE 09.:yes:
     
  6. I think it depends where you might get your black from....the black 09's at Neiman's here are awful. 07 is great....I have an 07 that I just found at Barney's here 2 weeks prior to Xmas.....it's fantastic black!!
