Here are the 4 most important buffs for you to remember:

(1) blind man's buff = Blindekuh
(2) in the buff [coll.] = nackt
(3) buff wheel [tech.] = die Polierscheibe
(4) opera buff = der Opernfan

Note: please don't confuse the English buff with the German baff:

baff sein = to be flabbergasted, astounded, speechless, gobsmacked

If you say to the British "I am baff" they could understand that you are "naked" ! :)
