It really depends on the condition of the bag.
Also, how comfortable you are with a 32 sellier. I saw one yesterday in person (the bag you describe, but with gold hardware) and it was majestic and suited the owner to a T. Personally though, I can't do 32 sellier.

I've got your bag in a bit smaller (28) and natural (less brown underneathe) and I love it to bits. It walks around the most with me, hands down.

I love Epsom, but others do feel differently. It's scrathresistent, durable, light, and quite the lady for being so tough! BUt it generally isn't regarded as having a soft hand, it is really more structured. I think that makes it nicer for Selliers, though.

In the end, you have to decide how important look vs. feel is to you. I have an Epsom wallet that has softened nicely but still holds it's shape well. Good luck! :tup:
