CCP footwear style codes and leather types make no sense to me at all. I know what LUC-PTC is and that is about it.

I know for 2010 this is right:

ROOMS- kangaroo
BIAS- bison
CUBS- reversed cordovan

What DOES LUC stand for? Just regular cordovan?

I'm taking a wild guess here. but, i think LUC is for Leather (calf lined) Upper Cordovan.
post #2150 of 12946
That would be a great guess, because all the LUC description include calf as well.


My other question is what does the L stand for. I thought it standed for 'lined' however I've seen AM/2601L models that are unlined. So that shot down that theory unless the retailers messed up on their descriptions.

here you go:

 

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."

So I am god damn gutted

995 boots which should have arrived today from hysterichostile should have been in my feet now

The seller's girlfriend mis-sent the boots to someone else and well, there you go. I received some random shirt and refund is in process

After another pair of boots in black preferably

Just a question Chiggah, that could be a very real possibility yet you're calling him out on here AND you posted bad about him on SZ. If he's refunding your money why are you ranting about him being a bad seller? Could of been a legitimate miscommunication/mistake with him and his girl.....?


and you should of bought my W+H boots (sold now).
post #2159 of 12946
it could be legitimate but i've told him i will edit the feedback about him once he has refunded.

I am happy to deal with him again, if the buyer for the YY shirt (which i received) sends back the boots to him.

Thanks D, I'm not the biggest fan of Carol's footwear but I'd plan to give them a try soon. Kind of hoping for something like this:
