Hi just purchased this and absolutely love it. It was listed as Buffle skipper, which I take to be buffalo ? It looks like togo to me, what do you think ?

All the buffalo skipper I have ever seen had such a pronounced grain with the top being darker than the bottom. This looks quite mono colour so doesn't look like skipper to me. Buffalo is also quite heavy with a wide grain.

Hope that helps.

Can you ask a knowledgable SA. Leather can look so different IRL.
Thanks, yes next time I head to Hermes I will take it with me. It is definitely not buffalo skipper as I have had a look at quite a lot of that online and it does have a pronounced 2 colour affect which this definitely does not have. Thinking it is either togo or clemence. The leather on the side of the bag is slightly larger grain, but still not 2 tone.

if i recall correctly i believe buffalo are much denser and therefore should weigh a lot more than say togo

Buffalo skipper is only two-toned if it's Dalmatian dyed (dyed twice). This COULD be buffalo skipper, which I believe to be actually water buffalo (not at all certain). It actually looks more like straight-up buffalo (bison) to me, as I have non-H items in bison, but I don't know that H used this for bags. The grain seems a little different from Clemence and larger than Togo - but leathers vary wildly. Bababebi would probably know......
