Paging @BColl_Has_Too_Many_Shoes. I think most are box calf but it would depend on the individual leather but I also think he can do some sort of over dye maybe? Maybe @DL120 can chime in since I think he has a pair of centurions in a vintage leather that was dyed wine. For my purposes I really like darker browns and think Antonio has a hide from my birth year which I’m leaning toward using for an Aurum order but am still hung up on what model I want.I too am interested in those special leathers he can source. Here's a question. Are those wonderful vintage leathers all aniline dyed? (Or whatever the proper terminology is.) I'm very attracted to Antonio's wine/oxblood/burgundy offerings, as they have this intangible air about them that evokes in me some sort of romantic notion I must have had at a young age of what a 'proper' man's dress shoe was. Hard to put a finger on this exactly. But anyway, his wine shades are all hand painted, right? For a really special vintage leather, should I be looking at more of a dark brown?
