    It seems St cripins had improved their last, I can see some sexy sleek once from the table e.g. gator, patent...etc

    I wouldn't call that an improvement, I'd call it adding to their lineup.

    I also ordered the 116 but in 609B CRU leather (blackish brown).
    It was very nice to meet up with Phillip, he was very friendly indeed!
    I also had a good look at the different lasts, I like the classic the most, Riva ok (fit was almost identical to classic). The chiseled or Novello was not for me.

    I agree, classic last is the way to go.

    609B will be great on the 116!

    No, it isn't. It's a regular grain leather with what I would call a medium-fine grain structure. The SC shrunken leathers have a much bigger texture pattern to them.

    You can see the shrunken leather here in the first picture on the lacing part of the shoes vs the INCA on the pair in the next picture below.

    Thanks! Yeah, big difference. The shrunken leather also seems uncoated

    btw, I love the shoes on the bottom.
