I just looked at the Buffalo Skipper B, it is lined in Buffalo Skipper as well, so I bet it is quite heavy.I see Sam at Haute Gallery has a Buffalo Skipper 40B. Is it a heavy leather? It is so pretty. But a darn big bag if the leather is heavy. I know nothing about it...
Thank you for the infoI have a 35B in buffalo and it's super heavy even when empty. It's definitely heavier than my clemency 35Bs, but it feels thicker and hardier. I am not sure why, but my SA (FSH) tells me that you can walk in the rain with buffalo, but not clemence, it's not the same. So I have always known it to be one of H's most durable leathers.
Too funny but thank you for this thread. I have been interested in a purse from Hermes but get lost in the talk of leathers, how they hold up, the grain, yadda, yadda, yadda. But...when I saw this and that they make some purses out of buffalo, well, I am all over that! So thank you ladies you have just helped one very confused, drowning in information I didn't really need until now TPF member. Most grateful. My first purse, no matter what will be made out of buffalo.Its a bit hefty. But I can babysit the bag for ya whenever your arm is too tired.
I believe @dharma has a has a Buffalo B30 in a beautiful dark red/rust color (Brique? Rouge H?) It's much heavier than Fjord, which I seem to recall is one of the lighter leathers. I've only seen Buffalo in dark neutrals (gray, dark red, black) except for the Dalmatian.Sorry for Bumping old thread for some info.
I am in search of preloved Birkin in Buffalo Skipper. But I’ve never seen the leather in size 30? Was the leather only made for bigger size bags like 35 & 40 that I’ve occasionally seen?
I read this leather is heavy. I wonder if it is heavier than my Fjord?
Also about colors availability for this particular leather seemed to be very limited? I’ve only seen solid color in black.
If anyone here has more info about this leather pls share with me. Thanks.
