I finally did it. I got my black city well, I got two black cities and I cant decide between the two. The first black city I got from Saks and its really smooth all over and the second black city I got from Barneys and its distressed or maybe this is what you call Veiny. I love the both of them and the distressed leather is really growing on me but I still love the smooth one. But here is the problem with the smooth one there appears to be rip on the leather surface about an inch long on the bottom of the bag. I cant figure out if this will bigger or will the leather tear. When I ran my fingers over this line, I can feel a dip in the leather but it doesnt seem to be that deep. And that is why Im calling it a rip on the leather surface. What do you guys think?? Also, on the distress leather, is that what you guys would consider veins? And will the veins ever fade? On a side note, Im driving my boyfriend crazy by asking him what he thinks because I cant decide. And I cant really ask my friends because they will never understand why I spend so much a bag. So Please Help me decide!!
