Sorry to bring it up again, but I'm still on the fence and wondering what type of leather is likely being used here. I'm not sure if mcnairy uses a full grain or if these might have even been treated. Any ideas?
Thanks! Ya, I know he just slaps his name on a sanders (which is why I'd never pay retail for mcnairys). At this point I'm just trying to decide if they work with my wardrobe I guess. For me they're kind of like an alternative to the thom browne black longwing, at a lower price, and less flashy.
I've never made a brooks bros purchase before, and the associates at my store seem pretty off-putting, but I'm wondering if they will generally bring in items online that are on sale or bring them in from other locations so you don't have to pay shipping fees. Thought I'd ask here before going in to ask.
Edit: I'm in Canada if that makes a difference
It's kind of a SW&D shoe rather than a CM edward green or allen edmonds style, but I'm wondering if I should buy these Mcnairy's new from a friend. Any opinions on the quality of the leather? What type of care does pebblegrain need? His have a basic stacked leather sole.
