Some of you may have noticed I've had my big fat toe in the door of this forum for a couple weeks :shame: and I've been doing a lot of research here. The information here is amazing! Kudos to you all for compiling all of it, its great! I really appreciate all the work that's been put into the various guides. So.... my question is this: I've decided after a lot of thought that I'd like a Birkin but I'm really torn in terms of material. I want one with palladium HW and in BLACK (for starters ) and I like the look of togo and clemence both. I just can't decide WHICH skin would be better. I live in a rainy climate so it needs to be able to repel rain. (I like the pebble-y, smooshy look as well.) The other issue is WEIGHT, I've heard conflicting things... is clemence heavier than togo? I go to Paris a couple times a year so if I can't find a bag stateside I'll try my luck there, hopefully, sometime in April. I could kick myself because I was in Paris in November but was still undecided about whether I wanted a Birkin... silly me :shame: Thanks ladies.
