They do the custom patinas at the store after the shoe is built. So they stock the shoes in an unfinished state and you chose your patina at the time of purchase. Mine took about a month from the time I ordered until the time I received them. Which was exactly as promised.
Sort of a poor man's Berluti or Corthay - although I suffer from no delusions that they are comparible quality.
Time will tell how well they hold up.
