There is a bottier near Rue d'Aubuisson in Toulouse (not Gaillac), and I can't seem to find him by street view, nor does he seem to have a website. Does anyone have the name and address?

I think a symmetrical toe goes a long way with tiled leathers. Some of those lasts are curvy and look a bit odd with the straight lines of the scales. Alas, not mine...

Shoemaking supplies generally isn't a retail business. Therefore, you need to contact wholesalers or convince cobblers to sell you shoemaking equipment.

The obvious answer is to buy something without a logo on it. Probably the stylish answer, too.
Get rid of it the same way I get it off my leather shoe soles: scrub it off with a damp toothbrush (wipe the majority off with a damp cloth first to avoid spraying spores everywhere). It happens a fair bit to leather goods in somewhat humid environments. I then give it a quick wipe with a little vinegar to stop regrowth.
It's probably mold.
I have a length of in a 3 ply (2xwhite, 1 black) black and white microhoundstooth. ~350gsm. The finishing process on this cloth is pretty much the best I've ever seen.
Brosnan's did. I say do it, because it looks sleeker throughout a full range of movement.
