Well Weinheimer is a Polish tannery, not German. And yeah what they offer is not the same as the old Freudenberg (which certainly was aniline dyed box calf, many would call it the box calf of box calves ), it's different for many reasons (it's an interesting story, but not the fora to go through that).Well the Weinheimer sample I saw recently was rather stiff. Not in a bad way as it was still very malleable. Sturdy would probably be the more appropriate adjective.
I guess those old Freudenberg boots must have been made of something else. Then again, it is not box calf so who knows.
Not sure if I own Fre. box calf. I definitely own Weinheimer box calf. As you alluded to, just because it is tanned in the same manner does not make it the same leather.
Yes the options offered were just outstanding! We are talking supple, soft, but substantial. The Suede was beyond beautiful.
Secret is safe with me. Hopefully people bypass this commentary .
Yeah people, pass by, nothing to see here!
