There seems to be a certain 'graininess' to the leather when it creases? Is this your issue?

creasing on the toe caps sure seems strange. Any more examples? Is SC more prone to creasing than others?
Creasing problems on C&J handgrades was one of the things that made me abandon them. SC the same?

The toe/vamp is higher than on most shoes, more creases. Also, as Gdot eluded to, as it creases, you begin to see the leather grain

The creasing on the right shoe bothers me

As my first pair of Saint Crispin I can say that the creasing after the first wear is much more pronounced then the Bontoni's or Corthays that I own. Definitely something I will be keeping an eye on during future wears.

Were you able to try on a pair on the classic last before your purchase, or did you buy solely for aestehtic reasons?
post #160 of 2109
I did not have the ability to try on but I will say that the fit is very good and the creases are not something
that really bothers me. I am still very happy with the quality, construction, etc
