For years I've worn crocagator accessories (belts, wallets, watch bands) with calfskin shoes. I don't see a problem with it.
I'm pleased to report that Find My Phone worked to get one of my iPads retured to me. I'd left my mini on a chair at an outdoor restaurant. The restaurant had closed for the night and the staff had departed before we left the table.

I think Mercedes intended the Maybach to be all about the back seat and there it delivers an experience, in ride and comfort, that is unsurpassed. And my mechanic (forty years working on high end rides) says that it's the best value...
Well, I had collars exhibit the same peculiarity and they had to be repaired. And their maker, Turnbull & Asser, were in complete agreement.
