Managed to get my hands on a 20P black goatskin and though it’s not as glossy as the lambskin version, I am liking the sheen. Here are some pics :smile:
I think it's a beautiful sheen that will probably just get shinier with use. Thanks for taking the close-up pics of the fibres. It feels like the perfect hybrid for someone who wants something more hardy than a lambskin and softer than caviar! I'm liking it a lot more based on these pics!

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?
It depends on size .If 20c is small ,then it's definitely lambskin .

Yes! I was thinking of the same thing too :smile: Can’t wait to bring it out!

Ok this is so interesting! Although all my Chanel bags are caviar, and so I have no lambskin to compare to, I have to say my 20C large 19 in the dark beige feels very sturdy and even got caught in the rain today and I don’t feel one bit worried about it. It’s hard for me to believe it is lambskin! Thanks for the insight. Only if chanel would put a tag on it to list their materials then I wouldn’t be so confused. :confused1:

If the middle of your style code is B01901 then it should be lambskin I believe.

Unfortunately here in Canada I don’t get the tags. I looked at my receipt and no similar type of code. Thanks anyways! I guess next time I go into the boutique I’ll just compare with the 20P season 19 flaps.

It’s on the receipt that they give you in Canada, the paper receipt

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?
We just purchased the goat skin in small black however we are changing our mind toward the lamb skin. Please advise if you feel this would be the right choice as we have an opportunity to purchase.

I think I prefer the look and feel of the lamb better. However, goat could be more durable in the long run.

My small 19 is goatskin, and I would absolutely say that it has a nice sheen and the material is beautiful and seems very resilient. My first bag in goatskin and wouldn't hesitate to get another. I also own caviar and lambskin bags, and would have to say that the 19 has the best "hand feel", if that makes sense. Just a pleasure to touch, honestly.
