I have yet to bring up the 'CMT' question with the makers. But it might not be all that the same with tailoring as there are chances of leather failing during lasting, size constrains with relation to pattern, amongst other issues. One thing that's the consistent across shoemaking and tailoring is the plush margins from the up charge, either due to price inelasticity of luxury demand or high risk of stocking slow moving inventory. Pretty sure croc/gator isn't the latter.
