Strictly fashion intended. If there were any valuable construction or quality features they would have mentioned them. In style until they set new fashions for the public to buy. Woman's marketing technique but no value in the Men's market. Thanks to the OP for posting though.

If you were interviewing the CEO or a top executive from a high-grade Men's apparel company, what questions would ask them?
Happy Canada Day. It would be a good idea to use a non-silicone waterproof. Even though you don't plan to wear them in the rain, treating them will give you a little protection against an accidental spilage. Also try to avoid wearing them with jeans. The denim will stain the leather.

Exactly......then there are those that prefer the look and feel of...
