I'll get back to you mate

You didn't get my PM?????

 

I love the patina you've added to the shoes - did you use Saphir's Patina-in-a-can product? I'm thinking about getting a tin or two.

The laces make all the difference.

I want to play a game, that old classic one: guess the leather. Plenty of kudos for the first one to ring in with the right answer.

I have seen a similar pattern and been told it was elephant. Since I didn't actually see the skin ON the elephant, but on a pair of shoes, I cannot be 100% sure.
