The London tan one you have pictured is my pic of the one I sold over a year ago (so yes, it's London tan). I regretted selling it and ended up buying another one but got the round lock instead. I thought that was London tan, but wasn't quite sure because I'd never seen one in quite that hue. Similarly, the pics of your current case are more beige than others I've seen. Both are handsome, and the seeming unpredictability of the color after some use is part of the appeal. Thanks for sharing those pics. Quick question: have you found the newspaper pocket to actually be functional? +1. Personally I prefer top framed cases (called doctor's bags here, don't know if that's the case in the States) because they are more easily accessible and can stand up on their own without any dramas. The only drawback is a fold over case can usually accommodate more stuff as the bag dimensions are less rigid. I thought about this, but ultimately decided that the top-frame case was too bulbous for what I wanted right now. And it's the same size whether empty or full. A benefit of the wrap-around to me is that it has a slim profile when carrying only a few papers, yet can be expanded to carry much more. I have seen a few partners toting a top-frame case, and I won't rule out getting one one day. But I'm probably more likely to get an attache if I decide I want a hard case.
