Patinate, to patinate, patination...

I struggle with reading William Gibson, but plow through because the little jewels stop me in my tracks and I read them over and over...amazing...

..."Everything they were wearing, he decided, qualified as what she'd call 'iconic', but had originally become that way through its ability to gracefully patinate. She was big on patination. That was how quality wore in, she said, as opposed to out. Distressing, on the other hand, was the faking of patination, and was actually a way of concealing a lack of quality."
