My SA has one on hold for me to look at. I decided I had to have a brown bag, too, then I would stop (my navy jumbo patent should be in today)! But, she said the leather is distressed. Can anyone tell me how theirs holds up and how distressed is distressed?? I don't even know which type of leather it is. I love the rich brown color and she said it is a really comfortable bag, but any opinions would be appreciated. Thanks!
