And how are these not sold yet?
Measurements are pretty unreliable, but I'll do what I can. Pay attention to my size range, what I listed was pretty accurate. Dave

I know jack sh1t about shoemaking, but I have horween from three different shoemakers. The leather is not the same. Not even close. Vass is especially different, more supple (and thin)
 Some of the recent dark brown from Vass has been very mottled, even more so than what I've seen from Lobb. It's hit or miss, as it's done by hand, and every piece is different. On another note, when I've ordered wallets in Museum, the artisan was receptive to picking a part of the hide with the most distinct mottling. I wonder if Vass would offer the same courtesy if one was to ask?
I think the only issue might be the dust which settled on the bloom over time, so the bloom darkens. Hopefully I can brush it out, and I'll give the hairdryer a shot as well. (Deerbone as a last resort)
Any suggestions for getting some bloom buildup out of whiskey cordovan? When new the shoes bloomed for 6 months or so, buffing/cleaning compulsively couldn't quite keep the bloom away. Reno as a cleaner/damp cloth can't quite get it out, was wondering if a deer bone might help? Given it's oily and it has the abrasive characteristic I was thinking it might be a good option for removing the residue from the leather surface. Cheers for any advice.
