Id be more concerned with the stitching on the band. Darn stitches are a mile wide!

Unfortunately, information about the used leather is sparse. I guess I was tricked by marketing and very competitive prices for handmade in Germany. Next time I will be ordering at more renown places like Equus, A.B.P. or Kreis.The quality of the stitching may indicate that the quality of the cordovan is subpar. Does the maker use Horween cordovan?
Hello... How normal is it for a new unworn Crockett & Jones shoe to have wrinkled-up leather of the side? I think it looks like due to inaccurate sewing together of two pieces of upper? Or is it acceptable for benchgrade?
(p.s. not subs, bought full price from the Jermyn St flagship store)
Calf is available in veg. Much of the lining I use is calf or kip and it is veg tanned. If I'm not mistaken Annonay makes a veg tanned upper leather called vegano(?) and I've used top grain veg tanned calf from other sources, as well. Also much of the crust that people have been using to create custom dye finishes is veg.I have noticed that only cowhide is available in veg tanned leather and all top calf leathers are only available in chrome tanned.
Is it possible even to find veg-tanned calf leather ? Why calf leathers are only chrome tanned?
