As far as the brown Lindrick being shell / calf - my recollection is that it didn't state whether it was shell back when they made their first appearance (last year) either. In fact, I think there was a question posted about whether they were shell, and no one was absolutely sure until they started arriving on doorsteps.
That was then though - why wouldn't they be consistent with the other shell shoes on their site. e.g.
Marlow Penny Loafer
Details: "Handsome and versatile penny loafer, constructed in dark brown shell cordovan with double-needle-stitch detail."
Color: "Dark Brown Cordovan"
Description: "The Lindrick lace-up boot is crafted in England of durable leather with wingtip-inspired perforation for a classic heritage look."
Color: "Dark Brown"
We won't know for sure till someone actually buys a pair but two questions come to mind:
- If the Lindrick is shell, why not advertise the fact given the $1100 price?
- If the Lindrick is calf, why charge $1100 (Epaulet's similar offering in cognac shell will cost a few hundred dollars less)?
