If you have either treated then both are pretty easy to maintain. I guess leather is more wipeable, but suede would be my preference.

I'd agree with the Baron. Treat them both and suede is nicer to the touch.

Stick with the original question you two! From a maintenence standpoint leather is absolutely easier to maintain.
When you go in for a job interview, I think a good thing to ask is if they ever press charges.

If you have airconditioned housing make sure that you keep your leather creamed (lanolin) regularly else it will potentially crack/check. Also, if no aircon, leather is hot as hell and also you will have to keep it covered with a throw cover as sweaty legs will ruin the finish (or same for aircon - keep it creamed). Have owned unairconditioned leather for almost 15 years now.

But, but, but - we have stuck with it . . .

Both are equally easy provided you treat them, as in applying protective waxes or scotchguard . . .

Sigh, try to be helpful and look what happens :roll:
