I got Sac De Jour in black smooth leather a while ago. I did panic a little bit for the easy-scratch assumption. So I talked to many people who own the same leather for feedback and use the bag several times. Here are my thoughts (Plz notice that I am talking about my 2016 version. I know they change the leather these years):

  • The quality of the leather is durable than I thought. Not get scratch easily at all if you just be careful a little bit. I compare with Chole Faye, SDJ has a much durable smooth leather.
  • Put leather protector before the first use will help. I use Cadillac and Collonil Carbon Pro. Works great. Also help preventing colour transfer. But stay away from darker jeans if you got the light colour.
  • Wrap the handle - personalize your purse and give a good protection. Handle is most likely got the scratch, especially for someone has long nail.
I do think the smooth leather of SDJ with a good quality. Go for it if you like the look. However, it may not suit for a very busy life style.

Completely agree with you on these points. Mine, given it is smooth leather, is amazingly more durable than I expected!
Ive also learned a hard lesson the handle >< it has a tiny scratch likely due to me grabbing it in a hurry to work one day :sad:

I love the color, and I think a pop of color looks great when you're wearing neutral or contrasting colors. This bag would look beautiful if you're wearing a white top with jeans, IMO. I think it would also look nice with a black outfit, or a light colored summer outfit. Congratulations on the bag!

Hi! Do you think the red smooth leather would have colour transfer if I wear it with jeans?
