Leather vs Cloth

I was talking with a friend and we got into an argument about which is better.. i personally like leather because its easier to clean, looks classier, and has a nice soft feel to it.. just seems nicer.. i feel like i'm not in a nice car if i got cloth as if its a base model.. what do you guys think?

Love my leather hate what the TX heat does to them. Have yet to figure out how to keep them from cracking. Lots easier to get milk and other drinks cleaned up from kid spills with leather then cloth.

i HATE leather, the smell, the feel everything. cloth is harder to clean after the fact, but i like it. leather has no place on a truck. just my opinion

Leather all the way vs. cloth. However, if it didn't cost so much, I would have my leather seats redone in vinyl. Painfully easy to clean/maintain vs. either leather or cloth

I like leather, but I like vinyl because it's so easy to clean. Good for a work truck. My work truck is a loaded out lariat, and I wish the seats were easier to clean.

I don't like seat covers because they seem cheap

Especially in a work truck where you have a crew riding in it, kinda hard to get that old azz smell outta the cloth
