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.
