It's easier to clean and cheaper than actual leather. What's not to like? Why be entitled?
Imo real leather smells really bad (especially in rain). If it wouldnt be processed with several chemicals it would probably smell like rotten corpse.
There is high quality synthetic leather out there but it osnt cheap either.
Look at Tesla, they just started offering a high end pleather interior.
What I dont get is how society associates leather with luxury... do people actually know anything about the industries they spend their money on?
You're contradicting yourself, faggot. OP says that pleather is cheap, but here you're saying that the good shit is expensive. If you're gonna pay a lot, might as well get real leather that won't look like shit
They associate it with luxury because high end leather is a luxury material. Nappa leather or the smoothest calf skins are expensive. A simple leather jacket made from those materials can go for $3k-$5k.
A car fitted with top grade leather seats and detailing is going to cost an extra 20-40k just because of that.
