I wonder if Epaulet made a mistake or if it's a different makeup. I didn't think think Horween did any calf, do they?

i have no idea. i've read tons of horween posts on their blog and on their website that outline all their different leathers, and there are many. that being said, the 401 that Epaulet/Unionmade/TSM has, looks very different than the "black calf indy" that alden of carmel has. so i'm sure there are many factors which we're just unaware of.

CXL is cowhide, not calf. 

 

edit: Let me revise this--as far as I know, CXL only comes in cowhide and horsehide. I should have clarified that in my first post, since I actually own horse CXL stuff.
