    It's harder to affect the color on grain leather, the cream gets cramped up in the lower parts and is harder to get it out evenly.

    Hard but not impossible? I'm determined to get some darker grain, it looks a bit weird when it's the same colour as the calf.

    I guess regular paint or a sharpie will have to do as a last resort. ;)

    If you use darker cream polish and do it regularly leather will slightly darken. Don't expect significant changes (e.g., tan to dark brown) but the overall color will shift slightly and add patina. This effect should show well after a couple of years of wear.

    I would like to know first where Carmina sources its museum calf.

    I am interested in combo model with dark brown suede top not snuff suede as dark brown suede is darker than snuff suede.

    It's a MTO, sorry for not clarifying that. The model is called Hove.

    i think we are waiting on @Skoaktiebolaget or maybe @Leaves who can help to clarify where carmina sources their museum calf leather from, things should move pretty quickly from there
