If it's for a Lindy >> Swift. Much lighter and less strain on the shoulders.

If it's for a Birkin >> Clemence over Swift any time, for a bit more structure, although both are very souple leathers.

If it's for a retourne Kelly (these 2 leathers are not possible for sellier Kelly) >> also Clemence over Swift.

Mrssparkles: is it mainly because of structure in your opinion? honestly--i really dont like clemence personally. i like a dressier look like box, swift, chevre etc i lean toward swift ..............

I guess it goes with personal preference. IMO, swift is a casual leather. Hardly dressier at all. Box YES. Chevre YES. Swift .... can't picture it as being classier when it flops so much.
