The leather doesn't have that buttery full-grain leather feeling, nor does it have the hard textured feeling of stamped leather. To me it feels rubbery/plasticky if that makes sense? A lot of the guccissima products on gucci.com were described as being made of a "rubberized leather" a couple of years ago. However, I noticed that they don't seem to have that description anymore, maybe the production of the leather is different now?

Hmm.. I don't get that experience at all. I have a 6 key holder, and 2 belts. Today I went to my local Gucci store an looked at several bags in Guccisima leather. In my opinion it's a beautiful leather of high quality. It's so soft and comfortable. Unfortunately I don't own any bags in Guccisima yet, but I have a briefcase in brown Diamante leather which I like very much. The Diamante is more stiff and structured, and looks more formal. The only negative I can think of with the Guccisima bags is that they will probably sag a bit because of the very soft leather.

Hmmm. Apparently they have two different Guccissima leathers, my bad!

I was thinking of this type of leather http://www.gucci.com/us/styles/322080AF65N1060#

I have a guccissima Emily tote and it's buttery and lovely lol. However for a suitcase I think diamanté may be a little more sturdy for everyday. Guccissima may get scratched more easily.

The briefcase pic was just a example to show the leathers. I think in general.

I think it may also depend on the look you want to go for. Diamanté is definitely more understated. I LOVE guccissima but I think for the reasons I stated before I would go with diamanté. Good luck deciding!

While guccisima is great as well, I prefer the diamante. It doesn't scream Gucci unless you're familiar with the pattern.
No harm to scream Gucci in my opinion! :graucho:
-Why shall we be so afraid to show our luxury brands?

IMO
Some people are very crazy in these times that we live in which might be why they didn't want their items to
Scream Gucci.
