question about the speedy and lock

  1. May sound like a silly question..but, I'm just wondering, is it best to let your bag patina before you put the lock on, or let it patina with the lock on?? I know it has left marks on some peoples bags. I havent put my lock on mine yet, I want too, but I'm nervous about the discoloration on the tab. TIA
  2. I never close the zip on my mono speedy and with the lock in the way the zip pull has hardly any pattina but on the rest of the bag the pattina is quite dark. Ive decided to take the padlock off and use the zip pull to try and even out the pattina a lil. Hope this helps
