I’m happy to announce that I have my popular retro brown cafe’ leather jacket in cowhide now. I still have the buffalo hide version too, so now you have a choice.
Personally I can’t tell a single difference in the look, feel, texture or thickness of a cowhide or buffalo hide jacket. I once made a very informative article about the differences between buffalo hide and cowhide, read it if your up to it.
Basically they are both the same strength, thickness depending on how thick the jacket is made, same color and same feel. Sometimes a top grain buffalo hide will have deeper and rougher grain texture.
