I have a pair of bespoke shoes from G&G in black baby calf, presumably sourced from AA Crack. Baby calf is thin and very soft but wears faster than regular calf. Mine have started to crack at the crease.
I think it depends on the circumstances of your black tie events. Do you expect to go with a date?
