Ha I'd say more like go-cart v. Bugatti
I would do 10k for all the trimmings, has to be leather though. I have few things, might as well get the best I can if its the only one Im going to have. My small search did turn up the Want Essentiels de Gaulle S4 which is exactly what I am looking for but I don't know jack about them, just that they did a collab with Orlebar Brown once. I don't do wheels, but from the parking to the port I'd rather roll than carry. I was put off by the fact some of their stuff is made in China, but apparently
this is made in Italy with French leather
Pretty much for the price of a 5Zip
