Apparently not....but that has never stopped anyone around here (including me!) from expressing a strident opinion.
The whole thick leather/thin leather issue is starting to remind me of the raw denim arms race, where people decided that heavier denim was better. So brands started putting out some very thick denim. I don't know how heavy it got (24oz?), but lot of people like me played that game for a while then realized that it was annoying to wear. I dumped my armor plated denim and grabbed some Diors, and that worked much better for me.
I encourage people to keep an open mind about the thin/thick leather issue, because you may find that really thick leather is somewhat burdensome to wear. I find medium to light weight lamb leathers more comfortable, and I wear them more often than my thick calf leather. There is good thin leather and bad thin leather, good thick leather and bad thick leather, so I don't think we should judge quality solely on whether it is thick or thin.
I like that intarsia. I am not sure I could wear that color though.
