I'm soo sorry Pfers that I've been constantly asking questions about this bag. So, just two weeks ago, i finally bought the matte black medium bowler; i thought i'd be really happy with it, but I think I might like the metallic black bowler more. Pursemaven's wonderful SA Joseph tracked one down for me; he said it is made from calfskin though? I didn't realize that there was a metallic black bowler in calfskin, i had thought that it only came out in goatskin and deerskin (or am I wrong?) so anyways, tell me Pfers, which bag will i love more, the goatskin or "calfskin" in the metallic black bowler. or will, i end up regretting it and loving the matte black more. Any advice would be helpful! Also, I know this bag is a few months old by now, so have more PFers experienced any peeling or loss of shape in the bag? , evy ps thanks in advance! and sorry for the super long thread!
