luk-cha: I wrote a detailed list to Chay and did not specify anything concerning stitchings. Maybe all shades close to whisky shell are made with stitches of this colour?
meister: I believe that spot is grease from the tip of my nose. I do love to smell my cordovans when new, Horween's vegetal tanning agents are pure bliss.
Ich_Dien: the brogueing is standard. At least I didn't specify it as anything different. What I noticed is that the smaller perforations aren't puched clearly through like all bigger ones.
rabiesinfrance: yes, I'm sad I didn't mark down that dog ear seam. I, too, do dislike them. Not a big thing, though, as these are covered by trous.
