Definitely more stiff that the Utah calf.

Thanks, any leathers you would compare it to? Say from Alden, EG or G&G?

I believe it is just imprinted calf, so I imagine it would be similar to EG crust. I am guessing.

Another interest check for Suede Carmina Rain Chukkas? I prefer Polo or maybe Tobacco with a Dainite sole.

Paging @heldentenor.

I just picked up some pebble grain Dainite sole chukkas but would still consider some in suede, especially if they're 3-eyelet. How do you feel about the York or Tomir sole for a slightly lighter shoe?  Also, @watchidiot is heading up some efforts in this direction, so I'd reach out to him.  

 

I'm really interested in tobacco suede and would prefer that to polo, I think.

So basically everything will be more expensive for non eu customer after August right? And what about Canada? Remain the same or merge into U.S. Store?

Yeah, basically. But some brands will remain unaffected (for the time being). Canada has a GST/VAT system unlike the US. So I don't believe these regions will merge, but it's too early to say.

Is there any interest in a blucher in brown calf on the Rain for GMTO? 

 

Here are two recent makeups, one of which is available now and which I might just get, given the upcoming price changes, but both are in Forest and I would like the slightly more sleek shape of Rain. This autumn's make-up:

 

 

Last spring, though sold out now in my size.

 

 

I'd have a preference for the latter: punch cap in rain.

I would say it's fairly soft, but I'm unable to compare because I don't have EG Utah.
