Thanks wurger and RogerP! Going through the shoe lineup for a twice yearly shine not administered by yours truly. Dang shoe shine masters - there's a reason why I pay them to do the job versus doing it on my own all the time. They can do stuff like that mirror polished toe look on my StC chukkas that I could never quite do well!

The shoes will never see another shine - they are too wonderful as is.

Do you guys think museum calf is trendy and people who buy them now will regret it 5, 10+ years down the road?

Personally, I don't think so. They'll patinate the same as any other shoe so if anything, the museum effect will become muted against the overall natural ageing of the leather. Can't speak to how green or navy museum will look tho!

It's a great leather......fills a niche in the trade, for sure. Glad to hear Ilcea's production didn't disappear like so many others have. I think there is plenty of life left for this range and I don't think it's a trend. We were doing it 10 years ago so it's not like it's new or anything:
