Last week, NM.com had a FW 05 Taupe Stam in stock. I took a chance, and ordered it. Well, it came, and it looks like it was never used - there's still plastic on the chain handle! No loose stitches and the suede interior is perfect. The only defect is a few nicks in the leather on the frame and a small scratch on one of side of the kisslock. I can't get over how fabulous the icy leather is: smooshy, soft, and still scratchproof. I guess I must of had some amazing bag karma to get this kind of return, huh?
