Okay, pics of the Deerskin and Goatskin Luxury Bowlers side-by-side; Deer on the left, Goat on the right. No flash, different lightings. Click on the photos to enlarge and see detail. Neither are stuffed. I adore the Goatskin! The Deerskin is definitely more everyday leather - soft, squishy, and super durable whereas the Goatskin has a more structured, rounded shape (and who knows if the peeling problems will eventually affect the black metallic). Of course the Goatskin is brand new versus the Deerskin which has been used a fair amount since early August. Goatskin owners - how has your black metallic broken in with use? Does the leather get slouchier or is it still formed? I have 60 days to figure out if the Goatskin stays or the Deerskin goes! I could honestly justify a need for both but must remain practical with the budget funds.
