I can't see the pictures very well, but I LOVE the more distressed crinkly shiny leather. It is really a personal preference. Some people like smoother leather. You should know when you see it if you like smooth or not. I hope you love it!
Congrats, I think you made an excellent choice. I love my black city and really don't think you can go wrong with this bag. It's a little hard to see in the pics. but I think the distressing looks great. People really differ on their preference for smooth vs. distressed so go by what you like.
