my anthracite is here! the leather is amazingly soft, smooshy, and evenly distressed. it's definitely a complex color, a slate gray w/ blueish or tealish undertones depending on the light. i've taken my bag from room to room, lights on and off to see the chameleon qualities everyone has described. anthracite is a beautiful color, but i'm not sure if it's a keeper. i'm still getting use to the color. i think i'll give it one more day to see if it grows on me. i've taken photos w/o flash in daylight. enjoy!
