DA NF, same exact reasons, and I am hardly carrying mine either. But...she is still my favorite. Kind of like that high maintenence girlfriend that the guy still loves to death I guess.My DA Speedy 30. I fret over the vachetta handles and light canvas. I worry about color transfer and aging handles - LOL! I barely carry her for this reason.
HAHA! I like that analogy! I'm glad you said that about the DA NF because I sorta want one. I REALLY want a Mon Mono NF but I had my eye on a preloved DA NF for half the price of a new Mon Mono. I'll pass on the DA NF and keep my eye on the prize!DA NF, same exact reasons, and I am hardly carrying mine either. But...she is still my favorite.

I bought and sold the Speedy 30 a few times. Now I own one in all three canvases and won't sell them. I hardly ever carry my Mono or DA, but I won't sell them. I carry my DE a lot. That one is my favorite by far, but I like owning the others. I will eventually give them to my DD's.I think about selling mine all the time, but I just can't pull the trigger!!
Oh my. You make me look bad. My menilmontant PM got caught in the mud and rain at a festival a few years ago unfortunately. It has a beautiful patina but the strap is forever twisted at one end (how it dried). It's still functional and doesn't look totally messed up, but I still wish that didn't happen. Just a forewarning that it'll look great no matter what!Good question! I have to say my menilmontant PM. With all the vachetta on the bag, the strap and trimming, I have a special way I pick-up the bag when getting out of my car so I don't handle the strap to much. I also lay a white pillow case on my front set to make sure nothing gets on the vachetta!
I know exactly what you're saying. I sold mine, but now want another.
