I just got a new Kelly Bearn in rouge Vif box calf and knew it would get marked more than my other new box bags just cuz I'm reaching fast into my bag for things willy nilly - not like with a bag, that can be (somewhat) protected when being used. So a week out and my new box Bearn is scratched. How do you all deal with aging your box? (no comments from the p-nut gallery here!) Should I apply some neutral meltonian (or that other cream...J. Lobbs? what's it called?) now or wait? As I only have already patina-ed vintage bags or brand new box bags, I have no clue how long a patina takes to develop - what have you all found?
