Regina calf was used on the black version of the LSxSE "Conservation Boot." I'm a fan. It should make for a nice wingtip boot.

I really like those.  I was in Alden DC today talking about this exact shoe with Joe.  Doesn't sound like they are going to do it again anytime soon.

The wear actually improving the aesthetic of the shoe. However, sometimes a shoe looks better to me when it's fairly new looking. I especially find this with wingtips. Sometimes the way the shoe creases can really diminish the otherwise fantastic lines of a shoe. In Cordovan for instance, sometimes the creases are particularly sharp, making the shoe look like a chewed up piece of plastic. I guess it's personal taste. For 5-800 a pair I want to keep them looking new for as long as I can.

 

It truly is personal taste. My comments apply only to boots as that's what I wear almost exclusively.  I prefer my boots to look "worn" as I dress mostly casually --- denim and chinos. To me, they have more character when they don't look new.  Just like raw denim, the creases and scuffs on my boots are mine and reflect my use.  I have a few dressier boots that I try to keep looking as new as possible for when I have to wear suits, etc.  Otherwise, I only treat them (with Reno or VC) minimally to make sure they don't get too dry.

hmm good to know. I'd gladly sell off my LS indys for some plaza lasted ones.

 

still bummed I couldnt get a pair of those captoes that you got frown.gif

I actually prefer the stitching of the Indy on a fuller last. I would do an NST boot on the Plaza over an Indy
post #58560 of 79286
NST is high on my list. I have to admit that I was focused on exotics. Looking at #8 has provided me with sine clarity. I really wish the Leffot pre order wasn't at the same time as my LS boots. Debating on the antique vs dark edgetrim.
