19A beige for sure! So pretty with the shiny GHW - it's definitely a classic piece. I wanted one since last year and finally got it last month. 20A metallic beige is goat not aged calf like the traditional reissue flap (dif leather). The color is very light almost like pale gold/ivory. I think beige looks better with GHW. Not sure if metallic is durable in the long run but heard many issues in the past. I usually avoid metallic. Good luck deciding!
I love it! Unanimous! I was definitely leaning that way too, but I thought the ruthenium hardware was pretty cool. I can get that on a different black bag down the road. Now I just need to find that dark beige mini for less than 1K over retail... thanks for all your replies
