@wormwood Absinthe is traditionally bottled at a high level of alcohol by volume, but it is normally diluted with water prior to ..... The resulting milky opalescence is called the louche

So yeah between that and the rakish appearance meaning that is a damn good word!

I don't know about any of that but it seems this artisanal aesthetic that's supposed to make me look poor is really working on more than one level.

New (old) CUBA derbies to complement a pair in CUL


Burnt/scarred appearance is a lot more intense




Compared with more subtle sueded surface of CUL



CUL is quite a bit thicker


And keeps a better shape off the last maybe due to the thickness.

Cul, Luc, sbuc, Cubs are on the thicker side from the recent leathers.

I don't believe any of them are actually "shell" cordovan to be honest because none of them feel anything like Horween shell
They are much more pliant and soft, don't crease in the same way, and are thicker than shell (taking into account the lining).

not sure what you are referring to but if its the ccp, def not shell, no one does shell in artisans unless stated or M_moira...

CUBS/SBUC/LUC/CUL are all claimed to be shell (as opposed to CORS "horse")

Also guidi has what they declare is "cordovan" (as opposed to their normal horse)

So I'm not sure what you are talking about either

ahh i see what you mean.

we had a convo in this thread about that. seems like european shoe makers refer to horse as cordovan which gets us here confused with "shell cordovan" it is in fact not shell but horse.

Right, but what is the difference (in terms of anatomy/tanning) between guidi cordovan and guidi horse, or CCP cordovan and CCP horse

Anyway, I think Shell is a terrible material for shoes. Doesn't breathe, scratches too easily, uncomfortable

Please don't hurt me

I certainly haven't noticed you looking poor in any of your pics, Alex. Now feeling, well, "that's an entirely different thing altogether."

cordovan === horse, so no difference.

cordovan is great for shoes, shit if i could have CCP in real cordovan those would be the tornados to own.

side note from past posts Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
CUL-PTC is horse cordovan leather used on the scar side (which is its reverse side), vegetable tanned; this kind of natural tanning makes the leather brown, so it can be dyed only with dark colours.

LUC-PTC is the same leather, but used on the regular non-reverse side; same dyeing process as CUL-PTC.

CUBS-PTC is horse cordovan leather used on the scar side (which is its reverse side), white tanned; this kind of natural tanning makes the leather white, so it can be dyed with any colour.

SBUC-PTC is the same leather, but used on the regular, non-reverse side; same dyeing process as CUBS-PTC.

How do I make that head bashing into wall animation
post #19904 of 22273
A lot of tanneries/shoe makers refer to "cordovan" as the thicker part of the (non-shell) horse. Guidi has soft horse and Cordovan, etc.

Edit: the "strip" on this page
http://horween.com/101/by-request-whats-the-difference/

Carpe, Layer-0, Petrosolaim, and of course M moria all have actual shell offerings
post #19905 of 22273
Right thanks makes sense

Strip is CUL/CUBS/COIL/cordovan etc
Front quarter is CORS/FG horse etc

Given that Id be interested to know if CUBA is actually frontquarter rather than strip given how much thinner it is


Interesting to note horween won't chrome tan the strip but the artisan tanneries will

Edit: I have had tassos try to tell me that CCP uses shell but obviously was misinformed
