What do you all think about saffiano vs regular leather in terms of the feel of it. I have an MK saffiano tote that I really like for durability and structure but you do sacrifice that "leather feel" curious...what do you guys prefer?

I have an MK saffiano bag that is gorgeous and has tortoise and gold link handles. However if you like to "pet" your leather bags then saffiano is not so pet friendly!! I have my eye on one of the large new totes though. It may take away my desire for an LV neverfull!! Maybe. MK has totes very similar to the new coach ones but I don't think they have zippers. Zippers are a plus.

Not a big fan of saffiano. The cobalt mini satchel looked quite different to me IRL as opposed to the website.

Is the saffiano more or less durable thatn typical Coach leather? I am looking at getting a wallet and like my wallets to be durable.

I just got the large black tote yesterday and I really like it. I think that it is a well made bag and very durable .
How big is it? I saw the measurements on coach.com but do you feel it is big? I like really big bags and thought about getting the men's legacy weekend bag but that is too big.

I haven't seen the Coach saffiano yet. I'm normally not fond of saffiano, but I got a Lauren tan saffiano bag for rainy weather. I am drawn to the yellow saffiano because it seems like it would be easier to clean. I think some colors look better in saffiano than others, for example, black structured LV epi bags seem nice.

The bleecker business tote is a good size, closer to the tanner tote. You can take off the shoulder strap and it looks nicer, I think, more like a mini-weekender.

I saw it in person a couple days ago and did not like the feel of it at all. It just doesnt feel like leather to me, so It's a no-go. Such a shame, because I was looking forward to the Robin color.

Robin is coming in the regular leather as well. ;)

You know, I really liked it. I'm going to get camel, so this durable leather is ideal for such a light color.
