Excuse my ignorance I guess.. I thought suede was the flesh side of the leather. (Wisegeek.com: "Generally, suede is created from either the inner split or the flesh split of a piece of leather.").

a. a leather finished with a fine velvet-like nap, usually on the flesh side of the skin or hide, produced by abrasive action
Guess it can be the flesh side, but not...
Some Guidi's from Rakuten in reverse stag.. never seen this color before. Not bad if you don't mind paying $2k plus shipping from Japan..
BTW.. what's with all these high end brands calling suede "reverse"? Guess they figure it sounds cooler than suede..
Price drop! x2
Beautiful, quality boot from Officine Creative Italia. The suede on these is very soft and they left some nap on it for a bit of that rough Guidi style. The inner leather on these is insanely soft.. super buttery - and they use suede on the heel liners to avoid heel slip and give 'em even more durability.

These ones from Farfetch (and not on sale).
I'd like to learn more about this narrow Guidi fit. Anyone know of some fit pics that illustrate the fit on the Guidi back-zip / side-zip models particularly well?
Eventually I'll make it out to H. Lorenzo and try on a pair.. just wondering what these look like in the wild.
Just browsing through the start of this thread and saw these awesome Guidi's. Anyone know what color / leather this is, and if such a thing is still available? I might be willing to pay the crazy (to my wallet) Guidi prices for these.
