Distressed Patent or Caviar Leather???????

  1. First, I would appreciate it if somewhat could enlighten me on whether there are two kinds of Patent leather for Chanel on the Classic flaps? I see only the Distressed Patent on the Classic Flap on these boards and on eBay, but have not seen a "Traditional" patent bag on the Flap bags.

    What is the Distressed Patent like in person? Distressed Patent Leather or Caviar Leather-which do you prefer?

    I am a fairly casual person, and would be using this bag more or less for special occasions, and sometimes to work. My goal is to buy a Classic Chanel that will last many years, and be saleable at some point.

    Opinions warmly welcomed......
