Crosspost pics from another thread.

Cobbler Union museum brown. Lighting environment makes a big difference. First pic is when they were still brand new, fresh out of the box. Lighting is ambient indirect natural light through the window at dusk. Mottling is very subtle.


These are the next morning, after initial polishing, and in the direct morning sunlight.

JL leather are really easy to buff, easiest shoes to maintain.
I know that sizing questions are a bit boring, but how did you size these compared to St C classic last and EB 2102/b last?

Tricker’s Appleton- my first foray into museum calf. I couldn’t say if the leather is from Ilcea or not, and Tricker’s won’t say, but I absolutely love the material and the fit.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
