  1. Hi everyone,

    I don't know if this is a silly question but I'm a new bbag owner and fell in love with it a while back. I just purchased my first 09 black city after saving up and I have been on the Bal forums a lot. I have been reading some posts about comments on puffy wrinkly leather vs. smooth distressed leather. Is there such thing as puffy wrinkly leather better than smooth distressed leather or vice versa? or is it just by preference? When I bought my city, the SA showed me two bags with the two types of leather and I'm now wondering if I chose the right one.. :s
     
  2. I think it's just a preference. I like the look of Puffy wrinkly leather & I don't like the smooth look.
     
  3. I think it's preference as well. I personally like thick and distressed leather. I do have 2 Bbags with thinner leather, but they're very buttery so I kept them. Different types of leather do break in differently though. http://forum.purseblog.com/balenciaga/show-me-your-broken-in-bags-191350.html is a great thread! What kind of leather do you like?

    Meanwhile, there are some threads in the Ref Library discussing similar topics. Hope these help! :flowers:
