I just bought a city on ebay and it arrived today. I have a few of these already but I haven't seen one that has been conditioned or treated so much that it is matte. All of the bags I have had still had some shine left to them on the leather. It doesn't look bad, but it does look different. Its not the look I'm used to and it will take some adjustment. My question is: Is there anyway of putting any of the shine back or is that gone for good? Also, are there people here that prefer the more matte look of the leather? I happen to have two bags of the same color, one shiny and the other matte and it does affect what the color looks like. Thanks a bunch!!!
