So naturally I copped out once I had to make a decision and got the black (who else can relate?) in the PM size. It also drives me crazy that Goyard charges 30% more for colors than it does for black. I’ve never heard a logical explanation for this. So the black was the economical choice as well, though something tells me I might be adding a color down the line anyway. Sigh.
