The leather on the chamois was smoother than on the Whiskey (I'm used to the Paddy's so like that about the Whiskey). But I really wasn't noticing if it was wrinkly or not (they both seem smooshy and they both could stand on their own but yet weren't too stiff). On the chamois there was one tiny whiter like mark at the top of the bag. It didn't bother me but I noticed it because I go over bags with a fine tooth comb. But knowing that you were not happy with your black mark, you may not want this either. Anyhow, when I called Lorraine on Friday about sending it right back, I had told her that I didn't want to hold it back from anyone else who she might have on a waiting list and she didn't indicate if she did or not. If you would like me to check with her on Tuesday for you (if you haven't located one by then), I can do that. SAKS NYC called me on Saturday too (I was on the wait list at 2 stores) so it seems they are going down thru their wait lists right now. You might try there (Ndo is very nice). Also, SAKS CT carries Balenciagas (Lorraine sent me both my camel & ink City's). Lorraine's direct # is 203-862-5341. Ndo in NYC is 212-940-2225.
