    Im looking for a nice leather jacket and i've found this really nice piece that's made from buffalo leather. What are the advantages of buffalo leather over say lambskin?
    I know buffalo leather is supposed to be very tough and hardwearing, does that mean that ut wont be soft as lambskin, more like horsehide jackets or can buffalo be soft aswell?
