I love my 2006 s/s black city - but the leather on my 2001 le dix and f/w 2006 Rouge Vif is really something special. I began flirting with the idea of finding the perfect black city. I love the smooshy spongy leather of my other two bags - so I was just wondering if there was a year where the leather on the Black City bags was really wonderful? (and what color the hardware was that year too?) This is more for the memory banks - or for the future as my bag funds are tapped out now for quite a while. Is there a year that the leather etc. on the black cities was considered the best? B-bag experts - let me hear from ya!
