I just got my RH Pine City from Aloha Rag yesterday! The leather is exactly as I had hoped for: silky, smooth, with slight distressing and a nice shine. The color is so beautiful, and like others have mentioned, hard to capture in photos. It's a deep, saturated cool forest green that sometimes takes on a warmer hue in different lighting. I'm not really happy with the way it photographed, it looks a bit washed out----the color IRL is very saturated. It also looks like the color of Swarovski green tourmaline crystals. I love this color so much, I just may have to get a matching coin purse! AR is the greatest, they are so nice there and at no time was I ever made to feel like I was asking too many questions or being too picky. They took their time making sure I got just the kind of leather I was looking for---talk about great customer service! The first photo is under florescent lighting, and the second photo is under partial florescent and indirect sunlight. You can see that the zipper tape appears teal and mismatched, but it only looks that way in the photograph. IRL, it actually matches quite well (with only a VERY SLIGHT hint of teal) and is not so mismatched like it looks in the photo---it's really weird, I don't know why it's photographing that way.
