Question for Black Denim Owners

First of all, let me just say how much I LOVE the Cabby GM! It's a little heavy when I load it up but that's a small price to pay. :heart: I originally bought the blue denim because I thought I could get more use out of it...well, after a day or so I decided I had to get it in the black as well.

The black just arrived from eLux today and, while I still love it, I have a question. The brass hardware doesn't seem to shine as much on the black as it does on my blue. It almost seems like it has been coated to make it a bit dull. I had to peel the blue sticker off of the zipper pull so I'm pretty sure the bag is new but I wanted to poll the experts in this great forum.

So, fellow black denim fans, does your hardware shine???

I believe it's supposed to be that way to match the washed-out look of the black denim. The black neo Cabby is a great bag --- congrats on it if you decide to keep it!!

Believe me, I'm definitely going to keep the bag...I just wanted to make sure the hardware was as it's supposed to be (my local store never seems to have any black denim in stock so I haven't seen it IRL until today). :yahoo:

Thanks for the feedback!

Yes, I saw the agenda in black denim and the hardware almost had the vintage look like you see on current Coach bags. The LV SA stated it is meant to be this way with the black!
