I am afraid I am not, but I strongly feel there is a difference....even if Mulberry says it's the same, maybe these pics can help? I feel that Darwin has more life, richer colour, if that makes sense to you?
Let's see if you can pick the Darwin from these pics;
there are two of each...not an easy task, but I found a Darwin gem amongst NVT bags the other day, and it was no problem to pick him from the other 6 bags on the shelf.

Yes, I definitely understand what you are saying, Kris. It is hard but I can see the difference in the grains. Now, not ever having seen a Darwin bag, it is probably a little harder for me to tell. But, I am thinking that the first picture is a Darwin. Am I wrong? It looks to have a nice color. But, sometimes it is hard to tell on line....

Yes, you are right - 1 and 3 are Darwin.

You deserve a bronze star, tegan and Lady F :smile:

I always gravitate to darwin if I see it - it feels thicker and tougher and seems to have a deeper grain than NVT...

BagLuver - I haven't compared, but I would think Darwin is a tiny bit heavier - feels thicker.

Slow, lol!

tegan - yes, even better IRL!

Lady F - you probably do, but I feel that he needs to settle down and feel secure now, after having waited so long for a home :nuts:
