I'm having the same issue. I'm going to try to stop by the store to see the new grainy leather before I make up my mind. A lot of ladies are saying its a little dull and too matted.

I have a smooth black and I don't feel that it scratches really easily. I don't baby my bags either. I've worn mine for a month straight and it's been great! Not sure about the new grainy leather though because I haven't seen it yet, but I like both, so I would be happy with either one. :smile:

I am partial to smooth leather. I think black smooth is the way to go. If you want grainy leather, get anthra?

I like the grainy but not when it slouch. I'd pick the Smooth over a slouchy grainy.

I love grainy, but smooth does hold up a bit better. If you use the mini luggage as an everyday bag the smooth leather does eventually slouch a lot too. I saw a woman carrying it on the streets and was so shocked at how slouchy it became.

Another vote for smooth because it is more structured. The pebbled will slouch over time. Also smooth can be dressed up or down.

Light surface scratches can be removed fairly easily if you apply the Cadillac boot & shoe care.

I just recently got a mini in the new grainy leather and I loooooveee it! It's lighter and a bit stiffer than the old pebbled leather & I love the fact that they decided to put feet on the grainy leather mini's now too.

I'm a low maintenance gal & hate bags I have to "baby"...so the grainy leather was a total no brainer for me.

I love the smooth version. The leather is pretty durable too so I think you should be ok if you choose that one. Good luck with your choice!
