To be clear, my wife would buy it immediately if the specs for the Birkin were something that she would be interested in. My wife doesn’t baby her bags so banging a bag against the car or a wall is not an uncommon occurrence. Also keep in mind that she uses her B35s for work as a briefcase so they’re constantly being used for a majority of the year. Novillo is much finer of a grain than her Togo bags, so it makes sense that wear shows more. She loves the smooth grain of it as it’s a completely different look than her other bags. Also, keep in mind, that according to Dumas “luxury is that which you can repair”. If the wear gets to a point where it becomes obvious, we will simply take it to H to repair for a minimal sum of money comparatively.Hi my SA just text me to offer my a b25 black phw in Novillo. After reading the above tread, I m still unsure of the durability of the leather as each of your opinion varies. I m guessing the differences in opinion may due to different batches of Novillo leather?
Anyone bought Novillo currently and please share your thoughts. TIA
From my reading it seems that the older batch of Novillo were more sturdy and structured. What is structure, thickness and etc of your current Novillo?
Thanks for sharing pic of your beautiful bag. Especially mine would be black, I can imagine how it would look in black b25.I got a noir Novillo Bolide 1923 30 cm about 2 years ago and it’s held up very well so far. No corner wear and no slouch yet.
