Thanks so much for all the help you guys have given me in choosing between a mono and damier speedy...I feel like my questions/posts are so juvenile compared to all those posting about their nimbus and suhali purchases. But if you could only have one speedy and you had to choose between the Damier and Mono speedy 30's - which would you choose? I'm in a dilemma because the Damier is clearly more practical, and will look good as new 10 yrs from now. The Mono, on the other hand, is a classic and will always have a special place in my heart...by 10 years from now, I could have yucky hand marks on the vachetta, and having to be careful (rainy weather, lotion-y hands, etc.) may take out the fun in having it, if I'm worrying about it all the time. Bottom line is, I'd like to think I will eventually have both (I'm only 22 now!), but in the end, I might only have one - so which would you choose if you were in the same situation? TIA!
