Yes, I can see where you're coming from: the stuff I liked could be considered quite ragged, I suppose.  But I liked how thick and fleshy it felt; a really lovely piece of full-grain leather whichever way round it was going to be used.
 Good to great.  The thing I noticed when I was in the shop was how much their stuff varies.  To be clear, it's all good.  But as a smaller maker, they do have erratic supply from various brokers and tanneries.  When I was ordering, they had some fabulously hairy full-thickness "proper" suede there in most colours.  People often remark on how their suede looks rougher than some others, but that's the real deal as far as I'm concerned.
