Second voyage for the MTO natural CXL derbies today. Love the variations of shading in the CXL leather as it breaks in.
I am seriously tempted by the derby in Latigo leather to see if the leather is thinner than the CXL from the MTO that just arrived. $665 includes express FedEx shipping.
I don't see the bulge in this pic either. I think jp2k1 figured it out... the CXL is a thicker leather.
I think you nailed it. The CXL is not as sleek as my service boot in latigo and it also fits looser. Disappointing since I was after the slimmer look.
This MTO was to recreate the derby below (that was supposed to be a production shoe in March 2014 according to Guy), which is very slim/sleek to my eye.
Does anyone else with the natural CXL derbies have a hump/protrusion on both sides where the front is stitched to the back? Both of mine do and it ruins the intended sleek look. Hopefully you can see it in the pics below. These are hard ridges. Edit to add that I see this in some of the pictures from other members.
That's not cool. For a group buy that took this long, they should be perfect.
Understood, I did their fit of my collar size with the body size of 2 collar sizes smaller (16.5" collar with 15.5" body) and have been very pleased.
Mercer and Sons has a few fabrics like that if their sizing works for you.
