Please. You wish I was embarrassed lol. I'll leave "spending time researching leathers and synthetic leathers" to you bud. Synthetic leather is synthetic leather. Plastic is plastic. You calling the swoosh (which is synthetic leather) plastic is your own personal preference. And I actually looked up the definition of synthetic for kicks and what do ya know, nowhere does it even mutter the word plastic, guy.
