Please tell me why and if you select other, which skin do you prefer? Just curious!
I would get Box, but then I would get EVERYTHING in Box!!!! LOL! I prefer smooth to textured leather in general. But if I have to choose between Clemence and Togo, I would choose Clemence: it's the only textured leather I like.....
RC, I can't choose...they are different things, with a different look/feel/use...
But right now box is on my list...someday...
Clemence. I love that it has slouch to it, and it's so soft. Slouchy bags =
I think togo and clemence are really close, and therefore this is a close call. I suppose if you had to choose, clemence looks a little better than togo in a larger bag since the grains are a little larger and flatter and no veins. Just my opinion. I have both, I like them both.
I prefer clemence, specially for a larger bag in a casual style. I really like how it feels to the touch. Also, I really appreciate the fact that Birkin 35 in clemence never looks like suitcase, even on somebody on the thinner side
Hi! Of just togo/clemence, I'd say clemence. For the same reasons already mentioned.
But overall, I'd say box. Box is more practical in a bigger size because it doesn't "expand" as much as the other leathers, IMO.
Well I will speak out for Togo. I love the veining or "poetic raindrops" as my friend calls them. They remind me of rain falling on a window. It isn't as floppy as Clemence and has a shine that Clemence lacks which I also appreciate.
I prefer stiffer bags - box, VL, chevre.
I do have a togo tho. It is as slouchy as I dare go!
CHEVRE!! Lightweight (and that's crucial for me on a 35cm) and so elegant!
Between togo and clemence I prefer togo because the grains are smaller. Also, it slouches less. If I have another option, I would go with box or swift because I am leaning more and more into smooth leathers. Another one would be chevre mysore so that the spine is not so obvious.
I prefer a more structured birkin, so my vote is for "other". I have and like chevre. I also like fjord in some colors...
I prefer togo. It doesn't slouch...as much.
Specifically with regard to a 35, I'd pick Clemence.
I love the casual look and the slouch on the larger size. On smaller bags I like more of a variety, but I prefer the 35's to have a little slouch and softness, so Clemence is a fave on those.
I choose other as I think the choice of leather really depends on the choice of colour. Some colours really go well with a type of leather and vice versa.
