Hello Ali lovers. I own 3 Ali's. I have them in the slim flap style 10327. The signature was on a PCE at a great price before they raised the prices this year on all the slim Ali bags. My black leather lovely slim Ali came from the outlet at $261.00The whiskey flap in leather, I just bought from JAX and pay the full price of $428.00There were green dots on the firsts one and I did order a second one since they were low on these bags. The second one I got was much better, only two green dots under the flap. I have asked a few members if they thought this leather was more russet and matt than the original more orange and more patina looking large 2006 Ali and thanks to Entheos, she did tell me she noticed a bit of a difference in the leather since the originals of 2006. I agree, This leather is more Vachetta and patina's less. Now my dilemma. As I can see, these slim whiskey flaps 10327 and these larger Ali's 10329 are turning up at the outlets all week. My dear DH stopped at Sawgrasss for me last night and looks at three slim flaps. All had not scratches on them, but black noticible marks. I have a pretty perfect bag here, but unused with tags and full credit of $428. I hate to pay full price when they are at the outlet, but probably would not like such obvious defects. All of you that picked up a whiskey slim or larger Ali at the outlet, please let me know how you found the shape of them. I would have to go look at it an hour away and then hold it until tomorrow and return my own whiskey for credit to get one amd go back. the price is $259 less 20% and an extra 10% last night which may not be in effect as compared to $428.00. What do you guys think? Thank you for your thoughts. DH said the smudges were big enough to notice and very black. Thanks again!! Merry Merry Christmas Ali Support Group!!!!
