The first recorded use of the word “buff” to describe a colour was in The London Gazette of 1686, describing a uniform to be “…a Red Coat with a Buff-colour’d lining”. It referred to the colour of undyed buffalo leather, such as soldiers wore as some protection: an eyewitness to the death in the Battle of Edgehill (1642) of Sir Edmund Verney noted “he would neither put on arms [armour] or buff coat the day of the battle”. Such buff leather was suitable for buffing or serving as a buffer between polished objects. It is not clear which bovine “buffalo” referred to, but it may not have been any of the animals called “buffalo” today.

The word “buff” meaning “enthusiast” or “expert” (US English) derives from the colour “buff”, specifically from the buff-coloured uniform facings of 19th-century New York City volunteer firemen, who inspired partisan followers among particularly keen fire-watchers.
