Okay, thanks! May I ask how they have aged so far? Any excessive creasing compared to regular calf leather?
I understand your love for that coat, especially since you had it custom made for you. But I don't think you can wear it without looking like a pimp or gangsta rapper.
I would suggest you:
-Sell it on eBay for a good amount of money, or
-Save it in your closet and hope fur becomes fashionable for men again (unlikely for some time), or

They're what C&J call "antique nubuck", which seems to be some polished up version of nubuck. I was hoping someone here had some hands on experience with it.
I'm considering getting myself a pair of C&J Tetbury chukkas in brown antique nubuck:
I am, however, unfamiliar with C&J nubuck - does anyone have a pair of shoes made in this type of leather? How does it hold up over time? Any unattractive creasing?
Also, in the pictures, this type of nubuck looks very similar to calf leather. Does it polish up well?
I'm trying to find a european store that carries Marcoliani socks. Howard Yount has a great selection, but unfortunately the added VAT when importing to Europe makes them a bit too pricey. Until I find one, I use Falke socks, which are also great.
