I find it very beautiful, leather is as soft as anything I've experienced and I especially love their Havana color the contrast stitching which I think is their best (but I am biased haha). Thats weird snow, mine folds exactly where it is supposed to. You probably had a different model though. I do prefer soft thinner leathers since I like it to feel like I have nothing in my back pocket so thats a plus for me. As of right now I don't have any complaints as far as construction or durability....maybe in a couple of months I'll have a better idea. Margiela card carriers for example hold up wonderfully and I've never had a problem so I expect good things from Valextra
Right now I only have the card holder, I am waiting on the passport wallet to arrive (I've had my eye on it for a while)
I know most people disagree but distressed gats don't look right in the fit.
You will just have to take my word for it, but if I had a full body pic you could see how nicely it all comes together. Maybe if I was wearing a suit jacket I would do boots, but the 5Zip just screamed painted trainers to me for some reason. Next time I wear them in that context I will try to take a full pic. Pretty much my boots made it look too clean, needed something else
I had this in mind. I rarely get feedback anymore and there is always room for improvement
Oh okay. I guess it isn't in that case. Saffiano is basically just vinyl coated and embossed leather. Feels kind of plastic-y but moisture and scratch resistant. A lot of handbag designers are moving towards it like Prada and Ferragamo. I'm not a fan though.
Hey you learn something new everyday. It definitely feels like quality leather, I'm not as experienced as some of the posters here with leather but if it felt like plastic I could probably tell haha (and would have returned)
