Such a lucky man.
What kind of Calf skin is it and how many baby seals are sacrificed to get past Suzuki's wait list?
I do not recall what type of leather exactly. It was made in Italy, I do know that. Email Koji and he will give a better estiimate of many virgins must sacrificed.

One question: was the thinner/more supple leather part of your concept for the shoe's purpose, or a recommendation from the maker?
It was my choice. I really liked the leather.

What say you with your experiences?- M
Lobb Paris gets among the best leather I have seen. That being said, JP Myhre's leather really impressed me. Delos, Koji and Cleverly were no slouches either.
