So I think I really love distressed leather and am constantly drawn to them when I pull the trigger on deciding on a bag. I don't have enough experience and dont own a lot of oldies so I buy them based on just my gut telling me I love the look of that leather:
My absolute favourite of all time is the 2008 Bordeaux/black cherry I have in Day. I think this is what people say when they say the leather is chewy.

My second favourite is 2006 lilac I have in a M/U clutch. I think this is what people refer to as feeling silky...it's so smooth but still looks distressed:

I also have the 07 vert foncé and 07 mogano in courier. I agree the leather is great and chewy too and I'm happily using them while I'm babying the Bordeaux and lilac in a closet because I love them too much!

I love this thread! There was a similar thread a looking time ago on the best leather but I love this one because everyone here are experts who have owned almost all of them and their opinions have stood the test of time. Sorry I'm adding my amateur opinion here..haha
I just need to get my hands on an 05 black city and I'll feel more well rounded!
