Another Tory Burch Revas question!!

  1. I bought the navy Tory Burch revas today and they were 235, while the classics were 195. the leather it says is this "Afrikan Veg Leather" and it feels thicker and stiffer than the classic leather. My question is this:

    1. Does the thicker leather last longer?
    2. Is the thicker leather less comfortable for you guys?
