Purchased. Were these on sale? I noticed I couldn't get free shipping.A couple of months back some people were interested in the Danny Sneaker in Utah Calf. But I already had an order placed so it was a bit overkill to do a GMTO. The Danny in Utah has now launched together with some other nice goodies. Will post more of those later.

How does Mountain Calf differ from Russian Calf ? I'm looking at the StC site and cannot tell the difference.That is correct. They changed the name from Alpine. I guess Mountain calf seems more exotic sounding.
One of the better grained leathers along with the slightly bigger grained Inca.
If I'm not mistaken Mountain calf is just Alpine Leather renamed. Russian calf is the replica of the Russian Reindeer found all those years ago. It is printed to resemble the Russian Reindeer, but the J&FJ Baker is a closer replica to the real thing.How does Mountain Calf differ from Russian Calf ?

If you are asking which you should select, only you can answer that but here's a few pros and cons....How does Mountain Calf differ from Russian Calf ? I'm looking at the StC site and cannot tell the difference.
This is very helpful. Thank you.If you are asking which you should select, only you can answer that but here's a few pros and cons....
Russian Reindeer is softer (slightly) and takes a nice shine. Develops a character especially at flex points. You can call this character discoloring or antiquing if you prefer. You avoid this with a bunch of brushing and wax.
Alpine is stiffer. It will not develop a patina, but you won't have to brush it to death either. For me, it is an inclement weather survivor! Russian reindeer not as much.
Both do have a beautiful grain appearance which is why you couldn't tell them apart.
