Wanted to give a heads-up about St. Crispins going to be available this spring at Wingtip in San Francisco. It will be great to have a Bay Area source for these.

Here is an embossed calf (not the stiff cowhide of classical Scotch-Grain) where the wholesaler AA Crack in Northampton claims the grain would not pull out in lasting.

That's interesting. Thank you for that.

I see A.A. Crack has a new look on its website. I wish they were here or I was there. They have some lovely leathers I just can't seen to get access to them. they never respond to my emails...I suspect it's too much hassle dealing with small outfits this side of the pond.

Seriously, though, A.A. Crack is not, AFAIK, a tannery. They wholesale leather, representing a number of different tanneries. I am hoping to purchase some leather from them in the coming month or two. Friends of mine on holiday in the uK.

On the weekend, I have plenty of brown shoes in lighter shades, suede or pebble grain finish, in full brogue or split toe derby styles. Comparing to them, the black brown in quarter brogue is too formal, and I have not wore it once on the weekend yet.

So the jack of all trades becomes the least used, and for my future purchases, I am sticking to black only for the more formal styles!

Anyone else in my situation?

I recently got model 114 in the 609 colour and found them great under grey flanel, combined with a blue sports coat. In my view they're formal enough, but can also be worn under jeans for instance; something I won't do with my black cap toes.

A picture is always helpful. As said, I have no problem combining the 609 color.

Question for those with crust leather shoes, I believe that jerrybrowne had said that he found the crust to show water spots very easily. I didn't read any other comments on this, wondering what other have experienced with their crust leather?

Thanks

I haven't experienced this, but my vendor told me not to use renovatour or any cleaning agents, as they will destroy the finish.
