Dan, I am not an expert upholsterer - I made my comments based from a user's perspective. I have seen many leather seats showing signs of wear, dried and cracking well before similar vinyl seats, and that is considering the older vinyls which were inferior to today's vinyls. I have also seen some fairly high-end leather interiors (in show cars) where the dyes didn't exactly match. Maybe what I have seen is not quality leather. I have no doubt you know your craft well and produce very high quality products. My point is that considering the extra expense, most folks would be better served by today's quality vinyls, than leather. If cost was no concern, then go for the leather.
