    That's a shame. Are they this secret with all their leather suppliers (except Horween, obviously)?


    I wouldn't call anything fake museum calf. Sure, Ilcea made it first, but museum from Haas, Bonaudo, Zonta etc can be great too, both regarding quality and mottling effect. The Bonaudo leather is really supple and nice, my only concern was that it doesn't take wet conditions too well, which isn't perfect for a boot as I see it. But there's many leathers with similar treatments on many shoes out there, not just museum leather, it's some Italian tanneries that does it sort of the same way, gives nice and supple leather but not that rain resistance. Doesn't mean it's a bad leather, just not suited for wet conditions.

    And for the record, John Lobb who made
    Museum calf famous hasn't used Ilcea in years, they use Haas nowadays.


    To boot-guys with Flick in charge, I think I'm out. Would have wanted it in museum, not plain brown. Sorry.

    Ah, well when i said "fake" museum calf I didn't refer to any specific brand. I have ilcea museum calf that I would regard as fake. I mean the mottling comes off after I apply renovateur, That seems fake to me lol. When one thinks of museum calf they think of the originals from JL with a lot of mottling. If there isn't a high degree of mottling on the museum calf then it might as well be regular aniline calf. I've seen a couple from Vass with good mottling and I'm not sure if those were Ilcea but I don't think museum calf with poor mottling is worth it imo. That's just cashing in on the fact that it's "museum calf" when it isn't nearly as nice as the real thing.

    Whoever is in charge of ordering from Carmina did an excellent job choosing those saddle shoes. The blue suede and tan grain pair up excellently. I would have preferred it on a more rounded last like Forest if I'm being picky but, all in all, it's a beautiful shoe.

    I am proposing a gmto for the carmina 80092 model in full calf on the elusive robert last, we are currently leaning toward the vegano marron colour shown below.


    I'll email Skoaktiebolaget once we reach 6 interested members.

    JUST REQUIRE 1 MORE MEMBER and we're good to go


    Currently interested members:
    @Dieg0 , @JARB , @laufer , @fllick , someone outside SF
    Interested members please quote and add your name in.Thank you.


    Price: 3120 sek

    Specs: 80092 balmoral boot

    eyelets: 10: 6 blind 4 speed hooks

    colour: dark brown/vegano marron

    Soles: Dainite rubber soles


    The boot looks like this

    I've emailed Gabriel from Skoaktiebolaget and it seems that Carmina does not have a catalogue of leather colours. There are 2 shades of brown to choose from according to him.

    Or dark brown below

    Unfortunately I'm kind of on a boot moratorium for the time being while I catch up on some shoes I've been neglecting.
