Many of you have read my threads on the atrocious way NM treats customers....anyways, here she is from Nordstrom.....the black City with black long wallet! The wallet is PERFECT smooth leather, but I am a bit on the fence about the City because it is very crackly/veiny looking almost to an extreme. It was the only 08 they had at Nordies, so maybe I will have to make the drive there to look at the 07's they had left......what do you think? I already conditioned it and everything. Is this just very typical of black Cities? Is there any difference between the 08 black cities and the 07's ? TIA!
