Difference between Polo leather and Vaqueta leather.
Polo leather is almost double thicker than Vaqueta leather, 3,2 mm of thickness VS 1,8 mm. Polo leather is the same leather used to craft polo boots and saddles. Polo leather needs more time of using to mold and get the body shape. The more you use them, the softer the leather becomes.
