Feel free to weigh in, those lucky ducks who have gotten ahold of '07 bags...I'm really curious to hear the "official" descriptions of the leather especially in comparison with other years. Is it unique? Is it more like a past season's leather than a new feel? I am dying to know:P!

I just received my 07 french blue city last night and it is soooo matte, smooshy/thick especially compared to the 06 which is the only other year I have to compare to. It crumples into a leathery ball of moosh when I set it down!! Nnnnooooooo veins at all..love it!!

Does it feel really soft and silky or sort of dry?

Did you see Oxblood by chance? Was wondering if it would be close to Grenat/Bordeaux...

^^yes, oxblood = grenat

i saw 4 07 bags at my local shop and i didn't like the leather. VERY stiff (though that goes away quickly) and dry leather. but the sample size its small so this might not be represetative of the 07 batch as a whole
