dream gladstone bag: which leather?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Thinking about getting a gladstone bag, like this:

 

 

And the question is, what leather do I get it in: brown or black. The above russian reindeer is amazing of course, but pricey. Maybe black hatch grain would be a better alternative? Solid black below for comparison.

 

 

The only thing to note is that I pretty much own no brown bags or shoes, and far far prefer to wear anything but brown whenever possible (a weird quirk, I know).

 

Saw the Cleverley russian hide one in person and fell in love with it, but there's the little thing about black shoes as I mentioned. 

 

Curious to everyone's thoughts.

What are you intending to use it for?

 

In most cases I've seen people use them for more informal uses and as such brown would be more suitable than black, even a textured black but if you without fail always wear black foorwear/ belts etc then you dont have much choice unless you intend to change that too

How about something like a cognac/port color that would complement both black and brown, sitting as it does on that very red part of the brown spectrum.
