I finally lucked up and will get a Peyton bag after all. I was very disappointed the outlet here near me never got them. Another TPF'er was nice enough to let me know an outlet in MA has them and my mom is picking it for me tomorrow. I am having a hard time deciding between the black patent and the gray patent. I plan on using this bag for my schoolwork/ travel on bag when I go on trips. I have been lusting after a nice gray bag since the cheap one I use now is falling apart at the seams but think I may get more use out of the black. Which one would you pick? I did have them hold the black for now.
