I have to confess that I never liked the damier line until I started reading this forum more (see how dangerous)! At first I thought it was too masculine and I couldn't see what was so special about it. Then I started looking at everyone's pictures and then saw a girl in the mall that had one, and now I think it looks really classy and professional- also more subtle than the mono line for certain occasions where subtle is better. I was wondering what your stories were for how you started to like Damier? Was it instant or did it take a while?
