CP only seems to call it "Napa" leather. Which is as descriptive as "red" is for wine. I've heard that it's "French calfskin," which is unconfirmed. Some suspect corrected grain. Personally I think it feels like calf-lined top grain. Definitely not full grain though, it's just not thick enough. Compare to 1ks or a Saddleback product to see the weight of full grain. But you wouldn't want lined, full grain sneakers. That would be too thick IMO.
FZ09 is just not the bike the Street Triple is. Not that it's a bad bike. But there are little problems with it, like the garbage suspensions and choppy power delivery.

So the tournament lows, that's what I got. the difference between those and "original" Achilles is the lack of topline padding, right?   These have not been pleasant to break in.

Hmmm. On the 9th we leave for Thailand for three weeks. Tomorrow Mrs. Hedonist has to fly to Japan for business until the 8th.   Thinking to hop a Saturday morning flight to Glasgow for a few days. Yay or nay? I reeeeally should get some work done...
Plus one, Broken. Plus one.
Yeah. We should keep in mind that these hugely popular designs we obsess over are both pre-1980. I'd be more concerned with finding the best-made than the one with the most "claim" to the design.
Yeah I'd be curious what the tradeoff is with the Epaulet models. The horsehide ones are particularly enticing. And close to half the price of CPs
 Eh, I wouldn't pay the age thing much mind if a piece works for your wardrobe. Anyways, this is a new direction from the brand ever since they got bought by Prada. I've seen the Church's in person and think they're pretty damn nice looking. I like that unbroken line from toe to heel where most minimal sneakers have the eyelet panel stitched right down to the outsole. But I haven't tried them on. Probably will before too long. I've checked out some Lanvins in person. They...
