The patent saffiano has a shinny finish to it. The regular saffiano is like a matte finish. I've attached some pictures I found on Google ;) Hope this helps.

Thanks 2 stars.. but im still confuse..im looking at the pics in Nordstrom, 'Large Selma' Patent Saffiano Leather Satchel.. and the pics looks exactly the same as the regular saffiano leather.. I think the first picture that you posted of selma is a patent leather and not the patent saffiano leather ( sorry if im wrong ) ..Thanks again :smile:

The pictures on the Nordstrom website are not accurate. The patent saffiano leather definitely has an extra "sheen" to it. The regular saffiano leather does not. You should take a look in-store to see for yourself.

I did not like the patent leather Selma that I looked at, but believe (and maybe I'm wrong) that the patent saffiano leather is just saffiano leather with a "sheen" rather than the "shiny" patent leather that I saw. I would choose regular saffiano leather, but that's just a personal preference. If I had to have a bag with patent saffiano leather, then I would choose the Dressy/Sutton over the Selma because I think the Dressy/Sutton would look better with a "sheen" than the Selma.

The first picture is the patent selma and the 2nd is the regular saffiano leather. I personally didn't like the patent but that's my personal preference.
