I am curious if there are any other fashion houses currently using goat leather aside from Balenciaga? Reason I wask is because I am tired of my family asking if something is wrong with my Extra Courier. They look at the veins and think its defects! I have told them until I am blue that is the character of the leather but at this point telling them again ist a waste. I have even shown them the bags at NM but they also think its a "bad batch" of bags. Its like trying to convince Howard J. Stern that he is not Anna Nicole's Baby Daddy! I don't want to resort to the paternity route In any case - anyone know of any other designers so I can drag them to the store and show them? HELP! And FYI - thanks to everyone who sent messages! I was just away for work and then vacation, which was fantastic!
