As you know Lobb's leather is very nice and they also have a lot more variety on hand... When I was at Mogador they took me to the stock room and there was so much to choose.
One reason I ask is lately I have noticed that part of the pleasure in using and wearing leather goods is my appreciating the "niceness" of the leather (smoothness, softness, pliability, sturdiness, how it takes on polish, etc.).
I have a well-worn Hermès card case that I notice the leather every time I use it. Same for JLP shoes or Roche Bobois furniture.
Save for an English lambskin jacket, all the other leather goods (American, Italian) I do not take note of the leather's "niceness".- M
