Okay aside from its lightness in weight and scratch resistance what else is so special about this leather? I know its more costly than Togo and Clemence. Is there another leather that is comparable to the grain of Togo and Clemence but not as costly as Chevre? And I don't care for the feel of Epsom so that would be out for me. BTW this would be for a Kelly SO in Raisin or Prune (haven't decided yet but have to by this week). I want it to hold its shape and also haven't decided between retourne or rigide though I don't have a rigide as of yet. And in Prune what color hardware would you guys recommend? The size will be either 28 or 32 / probably a 28 since I'm so short (5'3").
