What happens if you should accidentally sit or rest against stiff leather bags made in box, chamonix or vache liegee? I am assuming when you bring your lovely 'companion' out dining, it gets its own deserving seat at the table? But if you really need to place it behind it, and against your bump, do you know if it will stress the leather and give it bent lines? Nothing like this has happened to my vache liegee yet (it's still in the box) but when I was getting to know my bag this morning, I found it so much harder to open and close the flap and fastening the straps. And at one point, I used more pressure on pushing the flap down around the guides that I caused a bent on the front panel, but only just a little. It looks like it has a bit of an imprint there. I guess if I try to bump it up from the inside, it should be rectified. I hope someone knows what I am talking about. Do vintage box calf leather Birkins or Kellys have many bent or age lines????
