Thank you all for the replies to my previous thread. I finally got a Medium Gaucho in Metallic Leather. It was on sale for a little over $900. I love the style, the color and how versatile it is. However, I don't know if anyone here owns one in Metallic leather. THe leather is not only a little stiff (which is ok), but very rough on surface. That concerns me that it could ruin some of my delicated clothes made with silk or cashmere. Anyone has any opinion? Thanks.
