I purchased my 19 flap from 20C collection in lambskin and love it so much. However, I visited the store and got a chance to see 20P’s 19 flap in goatskin. I think that the goatskin is more plasticky and structure but I personally prefer the lambskin. What do you think? Which do you prefer?

I too purchased the 19 bag in navy from the 20 c .Thought I would exchange since I still got another couple of weeks since here in UK it's 30 days exchange or refund .I went last week to see a black in 20 p goatskin .The minute my SA saw my face she said she could tell I was not impressed .It looked structured ,matt,not smooshy or pillowy like the 20 c ,and definitely more plasticity as you say .I decided to stick with my original one since I feel there is something which I felt was not in the goatskin one .

The goatskin is more matte and less shiny. It is more durable but the lambskin used on the chanel 19s are pretty durable I've read. Keep your lambskin one :smile:

Besides the texture and shininess/matte-ness, can anyone attest to the durability of goatskin vs this lambskin in the rain? I know normal untreated Chanel lambskin is a no-go, but there seems to be a coating on the 19 bags...is it a bit more water resistant?

So, 20P only comes in goatskin?? If I wanted the 19 Bag in lambskin, then I might be out of luck, unless the boutique carries 19 Bags from 20C?

On Saturday I will be picking up a small 19 grey 20P for my mom. I already have the grey 19 small 20C. Once I pick up my mom’s I will take comparison shots for sure
Thanks! Would love to know the differences and your comments!

Goatskin and lambskin you mean .The last season that is 20 c was lambskin and this season 20p is goatskin .
Is this true? I got my 19 flap from the 20C collection in the dark beige and I was told by my SA that it is goatskin. To me, mine looks shiny, not matte. Can any one confirm?
