I checked out the newest MBMJ bags at Nordstrom the other day, and I was sooooo disappointed with the leather quality. The new bags feel thin and cheap, nothing like the old bags. Which is sad considering they've gotten a bit more expensive.
it depends on the bags. i had a natasha (the one with the bird on it) and the larger sasha and they were done out of REALLY nice quality lambskin. lamb is more costly than calf, because there's not as much good leather in a hide as a big cow....so it really depends. i think the quality is still here personally
