post #40501 of 52536

yep. If only I'd been able to take Friday off instead.

 

JM- did you miss my query about leather types? or are you as clueless as I am. I find it amazing that not even Google can help me out in this regards as I'm sure it must have been addressed sometime in the past. Especially considering the number of SFers who seem to swoon over the 'Museum'

 

I thought if anyone would be able tot help it'd be you

I only found out about it by accident a couple of days ago. Looks like it was originally intended as an event for women about men's style, but they've since opened it up to guys as well as they had 'a lot' of enquiries from blokes about it.
So I'm guess that means there will be considerably more women there than the average #menswear do (so at least 1).

Thanks mate.
Basically what's the difference between English calf and French calf and 'museum' calf?

Ovlov, I must admit that I'm not sure what difference their may be, if any, between English and French calf leather.

Here's a page which gives you some info on different varieties of leather, although it may end up confusing you further upon reading it:

http://www.atelierpall.com/news/1/qualities-and-varieties-of-leather.html

"Museum" calf is calf leather which has been dyed in a particular way, such that the surface acquires a slightly mottled, patinated look. It's been used quite a bit by John Lobb Paris in the past, and companies like Dunhill have used museum calf for accessories. It was made by the Ilcea tannery, but I read that they have now gone into receivership. I've heard that another tannery is capable of producing similar leather. I know that Vass and Meermin obtained some museum calf from the Ilcea tannery before it ceased production but I don't know whether they'll be making similar shoes in the future.

I have a feeling that English Calf might come from animals from England and French Calf from animals from France. I could be wrong though.

I will echo this, I can't remember there being any difference between many types of calf leather due to origin, I suspect it is purely taking note of the origin of the leather or tannery location.

Not to be confused with the English Horn, which is actually French, and the French Horn, which is actually German.

Guys, strange topic, but where do you get your underwear from?

 

Just like how I use to wear home brand socks, I now wear Sozzi socks. The difference is remarkable. However, I've failed to make the same transition from my Davenport collection, which actually is starting to pill and fade after a year. Selecting the most aggressive wash cycle probably does them no favors.

 

I see most men are all wearing Abercrombie and Fitch or CK. I just read that last sentence back and its very wrong - I don't actually observe what men wear, I just, yeah. Surely CK isn't 'it'?

 

So what is my Sozzi for the top bit?

post #40513 of 52536

Thank guys. I got these queries from the below info on Wootten among other things:

 

When considering what you want your shoe to be made from, you don’t need to limit yourself to cow’s leather. We can create uppers from:

  • Calf
  • Kid
  • Kangaroo
  • Crocodile
  • Snake
  • Barramundi

You can choose from:

  • Full grain
  • Analine
  • Embossed
  • Foiled
  • Italian
  • English
  • German
  • New Zealand

 

 

So I have heard of French Calf before but here we have Italian, English, German, and New Zealand!

 

But oddly enough the link JM posted mentions:

 

"French calf skins, especially " females", are the best, and softest in wear, although those of English production are, in some cases, very fine; the latter, not being so soft, are more suitable for stronger and heavier work than French."

 

 

Thanks for the info on Museum, now I know what it is at least even if it seems i'll never be able to own any.

bought a couple packs of cheap CKs from the bay a couple years ago. most of them are still holding up well.
