Here's a pic of mine
Your shoes have held up nicely; mine are more creased.
Received the following response from C&J:
Thank you for your enquiry through our website and your interest in Crockett & Jones.
Cavalry Calf is a corrected leather but it is very strong and hard wearing. We only source leather from the best European tanneries so our cavalry calf is very high quality and will wear well.
If you have any further questions then please let us know.

Almost doesn't get more official than that.
Thanks, although to be honest I dont use them that much just because of that reason.
Knowing what I know now, that's why I, today, would have gone for the Westbourne instead of the Alex.
But, like kaizo, I doubt that I could have been persuaded to go for the Westbourne at the when time I bought them
337 is quite roomy.
^ I have the Connaught in an 11F and wear an 11.5 3E in AE's and they fit well.
Not mine, but cooler than anything I own.
^shit has definitely been kicked by those Look a that patina!
???? amazing 11F = 11.5E in AEs
Gimme another year or two and mine will be there, too.
Great pic, Crat!
had these been yours, they'd probably see a little more polish and cream.
and if these were mine, it would take a considerable amount of effort not to clean this pair
Agreed and understood, Namor, but you've got to admit these look fantastic.
(I think we'd probably also use shoe trees)
completely agree. I think i would need to single out a pair of boots and not add polish or cream, or edge dressing. it would be hard to look at them for the duration of time needed for such a patina.
