i am interested in both santoni fam and now an increasing interest in lobb museum calf.
i know that santoni fam usually uses alot of hand antiquing of the leather, not a dye. so after some wear, the creases lighten.
but from the pictures it looks like the lobb museum is dyed not hand antiqued? does it lighten at the creases? thanks.
Thanks for the kind words Dior! My experience with JL museum is that the creses do not lighten dramatically. I should caveat that with the fact note that I tend to polish with darker colors so by nature, the creases will be less likely to show. For example, I'll polish the pewter museum with black saphir.
