I simply question the need for a "party line" on corrected grain.

Even some aesthetes can live with it......

Looks great on the shelf, but I've yet to see CG leather that wears in a reasonable manner. I'm open to the concept, but show me 1 yr. old CG shoes that look nice and I'll consider them.

Those Berluti's went for $214!! I was thinking of putting in a bid; would have been a waste. Can't see going that high for well used shoes.

A while back, a seller was advertising "shell cordovan" belts, but they turned out to be merely horsehide (they were Robert Talbott belts IIRC). The problem is compounded when translation is required. Literally, "Pferdeleder" = horse leather, not shell cordovan. It could be argued that when this term is used by a high-end cordwainer, they mean shell cordovan, but the German word does not, to my knowledge, mean that.
A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. EG did very occasionally make cordovan shoes, but it hasn't in a long time, except maybe in Portnoy's dreams.

The German shoe seller I trust about as far as I can throw. He tends to take poetic license with his auctions.

This particular shoe is a 2007 sample: a Church "Gunthorpe 3" UK 8.5F in Ebano (very dark brown) polished binder
My first thought on seeing those was, When did Church's start making shoes for Payless?

Well, you can always pick up a new pair for a grand or so.
