Been contemplating on purchasing a pair of Tetbury; however, the uppers are in 'black antique nubuck' which I have read is calf which is polished. For those that own shoes in the antique nubuck, are there any differences compared to the benchgrade calf in quality, thickness of leather, pliability/stiffness?
