I know that this has been discussed several times, but I wanted to bump it back to the top, since I don't get to post as much as I want to. I got the opportunity to place a request for another SO, and I had totally dismissed boxcalf because I was so worried about the scratch-resistance factor. However, looking at the leather book, I really liked it. Plus, I don't have any boxcalf bags yet, so I'm thinking it'd be great to have a variety. I can't say I'm totally careful about my bags because I work and travel so much I don't have time to think about it (and I like to think of my Birkins as everyday bags I can take anywhere). My SA warns me that if I'm used to clemence, it may be difficult to get used to box. However, I like the look of it, but I don't want to save it for special occasions only. Anyone have a box handbag that they use often? After 6 months or a year, how does it look to you? Do you worry about it more than clemence or togo bags (if you have both kinds)?
