Hello! I'm new to this board and after seeing all your great bags and much thought, I finally broke down and got the Anthracite City!! I was unsure of having a colored purse other your basic black and brown but after wearing it for a day and seeing how the color changes in the different light, I'm in love! I'm hoping with much wear, it'll have the more soft and sloughy look. Here's a pix of it w/o the flash. Now I'm addicted !
