[head scratch] why is that called a Cardigan? Is it just a name that a marketeer labelled the shoe or is there actually a shoe type called "cardigan" that I've missed all these years; maybe for the mix of suede and leather?
I've been out-of-touch with SF for the past couple of weeks and missed it too. Have been on the fence between the Purdey model's last and the traditional Islay but would have jumped on these and not looked back at that price.
Beautiful, but it would kill me to see the wear and tear accumulate on it. Even as a carry on, travel has a way of heaping abuse upon things ... they created ballistic nylon for a reason Still, congrats!
