  1. I am just curious about the different leather. How durable is the calf vs buffalo. As far as the buffalo is thicker than the calf. So how do the 2 wear? one is more durable than the other? Please share your thoughts. I saw on line some bag are similar style but have different leather ie ysl
  2. buffalo is a thick, matured skin. It has a heavier grain to it. calf is much thinner and lighter. It is also more prone to scuffs and damage.
  3. thanks mirdc, for your response. I tried to do the search but cannot find anything. so which cost more calf leather or buffalo? I thought the calf is lighter and easy on the shoulder so it might cost more. Am I right or wrong?
