I am in a minority I know, but imo the more structured styles (City, PT, Work, and particularly these 3 with GH) look better when the shape is firmer. To me the leather quality shows up better when the bags are not mushy and all over the place. Styles like the Day look better broken in, and look odd when they are not broken in.

This black city looks wonderful as is; each to her own but I would stuff it to help keep it this way...

It looks very thick and non-veiny, exactly the way I like it! Here's a look at my 09 black after she's broken in.

What you said - perfectly!

There is a thread called Show us your broken in bags. I can't get it to come up in a search but there is a lot of discussion on breaking in bags.

Good for you! I like it when bags are brand new ... but once they have broken, the leather starts to drape and just puddles ... love them even more! BTW ... beautiful Black City. Congrats!

I like it when it's brand new too, and even more when it's used and broken in! I would just enjoy the bag, let it take its time to get soft!

Here's a pic of my FW09 city too
