    IIRC it's a movie still off "Wolf of Wall Street"
    In this scene, Leo (playing Jordan Belfort) was in the process of receiving fellatio.

    While I found WOWS to be quite deplorable (a poor film, the debauchery was far too tame after having read the book), I'm fairly certain this scene was discussing with his father (the accountant) the company's AMEX charges for hookers lol.

    Ah, now that you mention it, yes, I think you are right.
    I knew there was some sexual reference behind that still, just slipped my mind for an instant.

    Enzo Bonafè MTO in Plum museum on maiden voyage. I'm not to happy with the creases that are taking form. They're way to pronounced after only 8hrs of wearing. I think I'll stick to Vass henceforth when it comes to museum calf.

    MC creases differently from other calf, I guess it's something in the tanning and coloring process. I have never tried Vass MC.

    Thanks for the feedback. My non-MC Bonafè shoes don't crease like this. Also, Bonafè's MC feels thinner than their regular calf. I was on the fence between dark brown MC and Mezele for my next commission with you guys, but I think this settles it. I'm going with the latter.

    As for Vass' MC, it doesn't crease like this. It's almost as smooth as new after wearing it. Pretty much like regular calf from Vass and/or Bonafè.

    As long as you don't mind these kind of creases, there's no reason for not going with MC from Bonafè as the creases don't compromise the functionality. Also, this is my experience with one pair of shoes only, which I wanted to share. I don't want to cast a shadow all over Bonafè MC, as that wasn't my intention. I'm going to wear these shoes happily and enjoy them as the color is exquisite.

    your impression of the bonafe mc is pretty much identical to mine.

    so it isn't a one-off case.

    Mine too. Although I had previously chalked it up to too much room in the instep.

    Doubtful. He definitely didn't when I met him.

    As for the MC creasing, a random thought but does it become less noticeable after some Reno? I have had similar creasing on other shoes that became far less noticeable after some treatment and brushing.
