    Those look great, gusvs.

    So, there are four grained leathers, am I correct? Russian calf, Inca, buffalo print, and the regular scotch grain stuff? Is there any more?

    Does shrunken calf count?

    To my knowledge those are the ones, as well as shrunken calf of course.

    As gvsus said the buffalo is pretty awesome. I can't comment on suede as I don't wear the stuff.

    Oh, right. Forgot about that.

    I wish the Russian leather came in other colors. I'd love to get it in a dark brown.


    :( This still makes me sad.

    I don't know, but something seems inherently wrong with black suede.

    Easy, I don't wear casual wear. Well, that's not entirely true. In the rare cases I am casual I often look like a slob. All or nothing. I have one pair of jeans (black) one pair of leather Buterros (black) and about 5 tee shirts (from white to black). I wear this stuff maybe 3 times per year.

    I saw them in a Leffot e-mail this morning and now I'm obsessed. They're not close to being in my budget, and my mind is churning with ideas of how to make it work.

    Our friend is one of those lounge-lizards, coming out of the shower in a heavy silk dressing gown (preferably Sulka) and with embroidered velvet slippers on his feet.

    (Allegedly, Terence Rattigan cut top that: he was the proud owner of a vicuña dressing gown.)
