The original confusion arrose because some sites are saying it's calf and some are saying it's CXL. I can't imagine they'd sell a CXL calfskin boot for the same price as a CXL cowhide boot, though. Usually Alden's calf is a little bit pricier than cowhide.

 

You are right that many sites mention calf, which is why I included it.  Horween's article on their website just describes cow and horse hides being used for Chromexcel, and I think that is all they use.  However, the point still stands that the OP's comment is over simplified, which is what I was really touching on.  The original Indy boot is cowhide, but special make-ups out there are made from other types of leather (including CXL made from horse hides).

Oh, when I said original confusion I meant because of my post that asked what the 401 was made out of--some sites say it's calf, some sites say CXL, so someone said it's probably calf CXL, which I doubt.

Ahh, excuse me.  I think you are right that it is traditionally cowhide CXL unless otherwise mentioned.

cover stain with corn starch immediately. Then brush away lightly, after an overnight soak. Repeat as needed. Then, perhaps, wash your suede:

Clean

Alden goes film noir at French Trotters. They have a nice snuff Indy on a crepe sole.

I recently acquired a pair of RL Marlow penny loafers via this thread, and I think I'll keep them. Do you guys think a pair of ravello or whiskey LHS would be too similar to the Marlows? The Marlows are full strap and closed heed/270 degree welt, whereas the LHS is non-full strap and 360 degree welt, but ultimately they are both pennies.

nephew,
the lhs in dark brown, whiskey and ravello are very similiar except they are different colors. if you can get either one or both, do it because you will have many years to enjoy wearing

Ravello LWB (AoC AF112) & EP.

These are absolutely incredible. How do you wear them without any visible creases at all?!?!
post #42088 of 86679

never thought I'd be a fan of crepe, but these new LS natty tankers are feeling nice..

 

don't think I'd do crepe on a shoe, but does anyone have a suitable example that may catch my interest??

1. Put on.

2. Take pictures for internets.

3. Take off, insert trees, take more pictures for internets.

4. Repeat.

I think the pictures without creases must be from when they were new, since the first pictures do have creases.
