Burgundy shell Grayson came in, looking great, definitely a keeper. I took a guess on the size but it was spot on. Very happy with the purchase, especially for that price


Some discolorations that made them seconds, probably due to thick layers of polish. I'm planning to hit them with a light coat of reno to take out the dark spots.

This is actually a classic English derby style. Here's one from Loake:

St. Crispins, though they're not English, but you get the point:

For what it's worth, the Jomoc is a reboot of the Jodox, an old style. "Jodox" was short for "jodphur oxford," but it really is more of a shoe-height chukka.

yeah that's strange: a calf derby in that rather refined style would have been nicer instead of steerhide

Is saddle leather really rough, though? Sure, rougher than calf, but not as rough as Dublin/CXL. I'd rank it around pebble grain.

 

I think it suits the last and welt style, but the price is a bit high for anything less than calf. I think it would be a great shoe to show off some of their new calfskin finishing, too. In burnished burgundy?

 

They really should have made the suede version which you can see here, too:

Just got the Amok's from AE's...there are a few blemishes on the left shoe. I'm debating whether to return them or keeping them as the color is something that well, will get dirty. Can I get your opinions this? Sorry for the quick iPhone pic

The marks are really minor - I would suggest keeping them if they fit you well (a lot of people find it hard to get a good fit on the amok)

BTW, the tan saddle leather AE uses nowadays has changed to calfskin according to Allison. I got a sample of it and noticed it was much thinner than I expected. I asked whether it was maybe just top grain, and this was her response:

 

Quote:
The Tan saddle is a full grain calf skin-  we use to have a full grain cowhide so the feel and texture may  be different from the Elgin.

 

Tomorrow I will try to take pictures of the samples I've received.
