Hello everyone, I'm quite new to Balenciaga but already head over heels in love! I've been reading a lot about Bbags on this wonderful forum, and most people seem to think that chevre leather is better than agneau. Is that really true, and is the leather that different?? I'm thinking about selling my chevre Day, but would hate to ever regret selling it of course!
Would love your opinions...
Thanks!

It depends on the bag individually, but my first which is agneau is thin, veiny, and distressed, still nice though. My shoulder is chevre and when I first got it, I could immediately tell the difference because the leather was thicker, smoother, and wasn't dry at all. Because of this, I'm sort of hesitant to purchase any more agneau bags. I would not sell it if it were me. Good luck!!

From my experience:

I've had both chevre and agneau. Some chevre leather are thin, some veiny, some distressed, some smooth.

But for agneau, most are thick and heavy.
