you do have to be a bit more careful with the tan bayswater though - it's the type of leather and the colour that's most easily marked. I think what you're meant to do is spray it a few times at first, so you build up a kind of protective layer - then you don't need to bother so much. Beware of heavy rain too.
Agree that nvt oak bags are ones that really do need the spraying otherwise they will get watermarked in the rain. Empty a tin of spray onto it when you get it, then maybe do the same for the next 3 months or so. Mine is fine but I sprayed it heavily for a good while after I got it. Some of my friends did not bother and they have ugly stains on theirs!
faustina and half term hero thanks for the tip - OK so DP wasn't completely mis-sold by an over-enthusiastic sales assistant, then!
RunForIt mine may end up like that - I took it out of the store bag and storage bag, admired it, stroked it lovingly and then put it back in both bags so my DD wouldn't nab/ruin it before I had done whatever needed to be done to protect it (she's 5 but her shoe and bag obsession already knows no bounds).
The Mitzy hobo is lovely and I'm very - those of you who have it. Was also quite taken by the Alexa, but it was a surprise and DP went for the onehehadheardof classic bayswater, as "after all, everything is a potential heirloom for dd now, isn't it"
