I got my first RM bag and wow, it is amazing! I have to say the leather is so soft and smooth, I find myself petting it when driving in the car. I can't stop touching this beauty! the color is so velvety looking, no red in the brown at all, very neutral and the accent with the burgundy trim is very rich looking. I must say I have a sapin city bal bag, and the bal has nothing over this one. This leather is so much nicer. the only thing I will say is it is a bit heavy, thank goodness it fits so well over my shoulder. Now I'm thinking I'd like it in red as well.
