Monogram canvas is probably the more durable of the two (I heard Epi leather can wrinkle?), so I would go with the Palermo.

I like the palermo... I love EPI for SLGs. I don't have any EPI bags...they're pretty stiff.

I personally would go with Epi.
1.) It's leather
2.) It's the less expensive of the two
3.) It's something not everyone will have
4.) Less faked

However, the Monogram might be more durable, but in the end you will be paying more for coated canvas. And for overall stylewise, I'd vote Madeleine as well, much more appealling.

I tend to like Epi over Monogram as the material is more durable, like you don't need to worry too much about the leather getting dirty/wet. In terms of which bag to get, you should get the Palermo GM. I have one and it's so versatile and great to use.
