    I'm looking to get some bespoke shoes. A shoe-maker online suggested that I choose his crocodile skin pattern stamped calf skin leather for some shoes.

    I can't see it in person, so I thought I would ask here.

    Can you tell that this "crocodile skin" is actually calf skin stamped to look like crocodile skin? Or are some well done that you can get good looking shoes through the use of such material?

    Short answer: Yes, you can tell.

    Long answer: What kind of bespoke shoemaker pushes knock-off croc?

    EDIT: "an online shoe-maker..."
