I'm just pondering (yes...I ponder occasionally)...what opinions are on the best leather for each bag is?

For instance, I adore Kelly's in Croc, but I'm not partial to Birkins in croc.



So for me, best leather/bag combo's are:

Kelly: croc, lizard, toile combo, box.

Birkins: togo, chevre, toile combo, barenia.

Bolides: Lizard, chevre.

Plume: Lizard, croc.

Massai: Clemence, swift

Evelyne: Togo, Clemence, Swift, toile combo.

Himalaya: ostrich/croc/toile combo.

Must think about this some more, but I just think some bags lend themselves to some leathers better than others. What are your choices?

GF, I like Evergrain on the JPG Kelly for it's softness.

Clemence on Kelly and Birkin 'cause the belts are soft and easy to work with. I love to hold and play with the Kelly and Birkins and run my hands over these bags when they are in clemence.

I love Swift in any style 'cause it's so tactle:P and would look and feel fabulous on a Bolide....why not in gold with white topstitch??
