That said, I like how Gold looks in Clemence. Can't remember how Gold looks in Swift??

Definitely check out the "Brown Color Family" section in the Hermes Reference Thread. There are pictures of gold in both leathers, and I think they look rather different, so it's worth a look! That said, I suspect that if weight is a concern, the experts here on tPF would recommend Swift as the lighter option.

I saw a gold swift today and it looks darker than gold clemence. Both will be floppy for sure and for a 35cm Birkin, I prefer the casual look of clemence.

I like the texture on a 35.
I saw a bolide recently in gold swift and it was gorgeous...

C, if you want I can bring my Victoria in Gold Clemence tomorrow, so you see the colour IRL, but I don't have Gold in Swift.....

I have an untrained eye, but Gold in Swift reminds me of natural Barenia!

I am a big Swift fan, but I do like the one on Clemence. I say you can't go wrong with either!
