Hello all! I'm thinking of my first birkin and learning about all the sizes/colors/leathers has been ongoing. I've finally decided on the 30cm Birkin since I generally look better with smaller bags (I'm 5'4", 115 lbs.), and I've heard that the 35cm can be quite heavy. I've also decided on Blue Jean but now I'm scouring the forum for samples of leathers to see how Blue Jean shows up, and I'm having a hard time. Trying to figure out which leather would be best for me. Which is the lightest? I've heard chevre and vache liagee. Does chevre really have issues with corner wear? If chevre, what's the difference between mysore and coromandel? Which holds shape better? I've heard Epsom and Box. Don't want to do Box because I'm rough with my bags and will scratch it up. Plus I have a one-year old! Most importantly, any samples of blue jean birkins on various leathers? Any suggestions as I'm leaning towards a more sky blue (rather than too bright turquoisy)? There are SOOOO many leathers to choose from. Can someone send me the link to the leather book reference guide on this site? Thanks so much. I would appreciate any information.
