G&G are not accepting any Cordovan orders, and won't be for a very long time.

That's a very big shame, I take it that means not even single MTO.

Correct, no Cordovan at all.

why not?
post #19943 of 23683

Because there's a shortage?

 

Don't want to promise on an MTO and then not be able to source it.

I believe I read once that Dean and Tony don't really fancy shell as a material to work with and can't understand what the fuss is all about.

I disagree somewhat. If you have a sleek suede oxford with a tight, fine nap, that to me works well with worsteds. A more rustic style, shape, or rougher suede, not so much.

I'd wear these with anything. Enzo x Skoak.

What will you wear them with - casual, dress, mix?

I'm with them.

I have to agree about the whole shell craze.  I mean it's nice but after my initial love affair with it I'm definitely over it.  It's just a royal pain having to worry about weather conditions to see if you can wear your shoes/boots or not, and heaven forbid you get stuck in a random rainstorm - you'll be spending an hour to try and get rid of all the splotches.

 

Shell is a beautiful leather, and I won't be getting rid of the pairs I have, but I probably won't be buying much more of it.

No clue regarding the mystery maker yet?
