Okay, I'm having bad luck with gucci. First UPS delivered my black guccissima princy hobo to wrong location on 12/21. They finally tracked it down and redelivered to my house today. I think they sent me a defective one because one side of the bag has nice glossy black leather, the other side looked faded and wrinkly. I don't think the box was tampered and it was delivered to a business location. I hope they'd pay for return shipping because it is unacceptable to pay 1K for a bag that looks worn on one side. Plus, the black guccissima leather does look plastic as another TPFer suggested. Sigh, I think I'll just have to look elsewhere for my perfect black bag.
