Misinformation and confusion on the thread taking on a life of its own?? Say it ain’t soOk before too many mistakes are made and these things begin to lead a life of its own:
Hatch grain is the name of the print.
Horween Russian Reindeer does not exist.
Russian Reindeer leather, besides the one found in the sea, is only produced by J&FJ Baker, and is a copy of the M. Catharina leather.
These are not cordovan by the way, these are Horween Saddle Brown Hatch Grain calf and made on the Pu last. They are absolutely stunning IRL.

Actually I have seen that as well. Several makers referring to their shoes as Russian reindeer. Obviously incorrectly labeling it as such.For the record, I did use the term "russian reindeer" loosely only because the Horween stuff is marketed as such. However, it is usually marketed as "russian reindeer CALF." It's just too long to type. Maybe we should say "hrrc" for short?
Yeah the Baker version is probably the only that's full vegetable tanned, right?Actually I have seen that as well. Several makers referring to their shoes as Russian reindeer. Obviously incorrectly labeling it as such.
I don't believe even J&FJ Baker uses the term "Reindeer" in their description of it. They just say Russian calf. The "Russian" aspect being the tanning process that the leather has undergone. Which shares its similarity to the stuff found from the wreckage.
As far as I'm aware, the only non-vegetable ingredient is Fish oil. The rest is other oils and woodsy stuff.Yeah the Baker version is probably the only that's full vegetable tanned, right?
Now since that is cleared up.Yes and I see now that my english grammar isn't too good, as of course I meant to write that the J&FJ Baker Russian Reindeer is a copy of the M. Catharina leather. Oh well, can't wint them all
