I want the black birkin with gold hardware and just today (from your posts) I found out you can get the leather in different qualities, togo and clemeuse (?) are there others 'normal' leathers? (no exotic) what are the pros and cons for these leathers? I am 5'2 and a US size 6/8 would the 35 be the best size or can you recommend a different size? what is the current prize for this bag? and is it cheaper in France? Thanks in advance everybody!!!
